### Detection Failure

I am currently setting up my ESC using motor setup wizard, however, when asked to run the detection for the parameters, my motor does not cooperate. I have gone through both FOC and BLDC, however neither are working. Any advice for how to make it work. I am using a torque board motor 6353/190KV and my battery that I am trying to set it up with is 4 cells 5.2 A, 14.8V. I plan on running my longboard with two of these LiPo batteries

### Hi mjmarchetto

Hi mjmarchetto

maybe you got it working in the meantime, but I guess you are facting the same problem as I that your setup has a high inertio, so the overcurrent protection got in between. Try to set the eRPM (500afaik) in the detection lower for FOC. For BC (called BLDC here) I did not get mine working at all; as I got not feedback how to tweak the setup I was unable to get further on that front, but as FOC works as it should (so far) it's OK for me.

Cheers

### Electrical

Hi , It is worth re-checking the integrity of all electrical Power and sensors. Tighten any connections or secure where possible, effectively you have to look at all your wires and see which one is duff, enjoy :)

### hope you develop VESC Application to work on the iOS or OSX

### Hi, You can use whats called

Hi, You can use whats called a "Virtual Machine" to run linux, mac, or windows OS's on your computer. I have a PC, and I run Linux through a virtual machine. My friend has a mac, and he runs Windows 10 on his mac on a VM. The software is called virtual box. Its made by a pretty big company named Oracle. It is free! Get ready to watch some youtube videos on the subject if you're unfamiliar with it.  https://www.virtualbox.org/

I have installed the tool properly and when I click to open it begins to open and immediately closes and disappears, I removed all security settings leaving my computer wide-open but still it doesn't work and I see other people have the same problem so it would be real nice if somebody would respond with a fix.

it would be nice if somebody replied with a fix in July 2020

I installed the tool correctly, and when I click to open it, it opens for a few seconds before closing and disappearing. I removed all security settings, leaving my computer wide open, but it still doesn't work, and I see that other people are having the same issue, so it would be great if someone could respond with a fix. 1v1.lol unblocked

### Hi good afternoon.

Hi good afternoon.
I have a request for you, I have already registered on your vesc tool page.
However, I do not get an e-mail with the program that I can program my mountainboard vesc.
In this regard, I would ask you if you would send me the program by email.
Kind regards

### What programming language do

What programming language do you need to know to program a microcontroller. I only learned Python when I worked on the chase routing number project. Once upon a time, I worked with Arduino microcontrollers.

### It's pretty safe to say that

It's pretty safe to say that Elden Ring is a tough game. Frequent ambushes and enemies that can kill you with a single hit can make the first few hours very difficult.

### First way is Automatically

First way is Automatically installation:After WinXP system, Windows has built-in function of automatically search driver on the internet, so when you connect VESC to your computer with USB cable, if current Windows has no VESC driver, Windows can search related driver and install automatically, at this moment, Windows has a hint of showing “new device is discovered meanwhile automatically search and install driver”, you just need to wait for the installation finished, it takes about 1-2 minutes or longer. Don't forget that if you are too stressed in the installation, or join Paper Minecraft to have a really refreshing spirit.
