Followed all possible FAQ and reset documents. I'm able to connect to my 640m via ethernet or serial. Currently sitting at version 1.020. Would like to upgrade.

Computer: COM1 On-Board (not USB adapter)
NET Framework: 1,2,3.5 (latest service packs)

I've installed the latest 1.11 flasher. However it detects my device as 1261 and it crushes with following errors.

See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file for this
application or machine (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the machine
rather than being handled by this dialog.


Any help would be great. Can't USE a ZC-3 for scene selection.


  • Hi spiky,

    There currently is no firmware update available for the ZonePRO"M" series (1.020 is the current version). The firmware update on our website is only for original ZonePRO (non-M) models.
