I have a BlinkStick Flex (32 LEDs) which I am driving using the dotNET dll using LabVIEW 2020. I can drive the first 8 LEDs but cannot drive the remaining 32. I installed the BlinkStick Client (version 2.0-rc10) on the LabVIEW PC and it too can only drive the first 8 LEDs despite notifying that it has commanded more than the first 8 (pattern set under Notifications, programmed/requested LEDs colours under Overview). Note that the PC with LabVIEW is running Win7 so I also installed the Client on a Win10 PC, connected the Flex to it and got the same result i.e. not able to drive more than the first 8 LEDs.
I see that there was a previous post with the same issue in November 2015. There was a link to a zip file which no longer seems to work.
Looking at the architecture of the LED array, I assume that if one LED fails it will not pass on the data to the next LED down the chain hence effectively disabling all subsequent LEDs.
Is my problem a failed LED or an out of date driver or incorrect configuration?
