I cannot run the program from the ev3 software.It only shows "VM program validiation" How do I stop this from happening?

  • Do you get this for all Programs you try to run, or just this one? Commented Dec 5, 2014 at 10:23

How did you download the program to the EV3? According to this post on the Mindstorms forum this can occur if there was a problem sending the program, usually via poor quality Bluetooth adaptors.

You can confirm this if the downloaded program is only a few bytes in size on the Brick.

If this is the case, try downloading the program via a USB cable.

  • I used the usb cable

  • Hmm, I assume you've tried deleting it from the EV3 and re-loading it? Commented Dec 6, 2014 at 8:22

    I just learnt that the error occured because of another program had a similar name.
