Hello
ich bought a Evaluation Board o use for a project. But my IDE V5.15 does not recognise the board. So whats wrong? Writing on the package: for "MPLAB Xpresss cloudbased IDE".meanoes ootthat mean, that i can't use the borard for my IDE on my notebook?
If not, where can i get information, which Evaluation Board is useable for programming using local IDE?

There are plenty of evaluation boards depending on what you want to design. Did you search Evaluation board on https://www.microchipdirect.com/ ?

No, i was looking on ebay, and took the cheapest one. I relied on my experiance with the DM164136, a curiosity board, that is recognised by IDE 5.15. So i thought i can use every board the same way. Looks like that was wrong.
But i inly have a small (private) project, where i need 2 analog in and 2 digital outs. But how can i use the DM164140? Can i only use ready projects using the Cloud IDE? I did not find out that?

I haven't used the DM164140 yet, but I think you should be able to use your offline IDE as well. 
In the user guide section 2.2:
 
PROGRAMMING XPRESS BOARD USING MPLAB® X
Xpress Boards can be programmed using MPLAB X by following the same steps as described in Section 2.1 “Programming the MPLAB Xpress Evaluation Board” for MPLAB Xpress.
In addition to drag-and-drop, MPLAB X can run a post-build script to perform this action automatically. To set this up, right click on Project Name > Properties > Building and check the Execute this line after build. In the text box below it, type: cp ${ImagePath} Replace with the actual location where XPRESS board is mounted.
For example, on Windows, if the XPRESS board is mounted at D:\, the script would look like: cp ${ImagePath} D:\ For Mac OS X, if the XPRESS board is mounted at /Volumes/XPRESS, the script would look like: cp ${ImagePath} /Volumes/XPRESS
 
You could also develop offiline with MPLAB X IDE, then package your project to a zip file. When you want to program your board with MPLAB Xpress, you could import your zipped project with MPLAB Xpress.

Hello katela
it does not work, or i am too stupid to understand. Bu when i add the command i'll get an error message on comiling and the board is still not accepted. What is interesting: The board is recognized as drive f from windows. And there is a file on it, a html-file, that guids to the cloud-based ide. The next problem is that i cant login and i can not reach the support (page not found)......

Ah, really, i was too stupid to understand. Drop the hex-File on the Drive, and it works....
 
thanks
