This article is a quick setup guide to deploy Raspberry Pi Pico (RP2040) SDK and FT2232H for Windows 10 systems.

This article is a quick and small guide to deploy the Raspberry Pi Pico (RP2040) SDK and the FT2232H into Windows 10 systems. Basically, the SDK is mainly built on Linux and there will be significant amount of effort to make it run on Windows 10.

 You will need:

  • Windows 10 with Linux Subsystem
  • Visual Studio Code
  • Cygwin
  • Raspberry Pi version of OpenOCD
  • FT2232H board (can be obtained through AliExpress or somewhere similar)
  • Build Tools for VS2019
  • Git
  • GDB-multiarch
  • Some jumpers, 470ohm resistor and a small breadboard

FT2232H board:

  • 1 × Raspberry Pi Pico (RP2040)

  • 1
    Get the required software as stated in the manual (Getting Started with Pico - page 34 onwards)

    As usual, from the manual (page 34 onwards!):

  • 2
    Then, install VS Code, and run it!

    Install VS Code and the Build Tools for VS2019.

    Then, launch VS Code from the Visual Studio 2019 Developer Command Prompt.

    Launching it from elsewhere wouldn't work at all during the build stages!

  • 3
    Set Path!

    After launching VS Code there, set the path so that the build tools can locate the SDK:

    setx PICO_SDK_PATH "..\..\pico-sdk"
