msys32 blocks the computer and the mouse starts to move without control

Postby albertmbt » Thu Nov 09, 2017 11:30 am

Hi, I've been working with esp32 for 3 weeks without a problem, but today, using msys32 to download the programs I started having errors. When I commanded make flash, all the pc got hanged up, and then my mouse started to go jumping for the screen right and left clicking, so at the end and not beeing able to get back control I had to reset my pc , and now there are some times that works fine and others that ends in error. Someone has been through the same? I also use eclipse but the errors just seem to appear when I am using mingw32.exe.

Thanks

Interesting! Which version of Windows is it? I never had any issues with the latest version on Windows 10 and 8.1.
But I remember making the command window translucent and that sort of caused screen flickering at times.

i've had the same problem, although when I pull out the usb cable connected to my esp32 the madness stops =P
It was clicking too, dragging and dropping all kinds of things haha.

Maybe the infamous Serial ballpoint issue ?

Ah, I remember reading about that. I think it was this issue.

I'm working on windows 10. I also realized that removing the usb stopped the insanity, but I'm also worried. I'm going to take a look at this things you say.

I'm 99.9% sure that the problem i had is that you're saying. The pc is reading com port as mouse peripheral. Anyway to fix it? without having to disable the detection of serial mice on COM ports in Windows? And also, it's USB to TTL device problem or about the pc software?

Erm, why would you want to keep detection of serial mice in? I think they stopped producing those things in the '90s... Mind you, this is about mice you put on your RS232 port, not USB or PS/2.

I actually don't need to keep detection of serial mice of course, just wondering if there was another way to fix it due the fact that it does not always perform a bad detection.
