1  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / SketchBook Folder Path on: November 26, 2012, 06:40:18 am
On my Mac when I start Arduino 1.0.1 I get an empty sketch (sketch_nov26a) - todays date
If goto Arduino/Sletch/Show Sketch Folder I am shown a folder in /var/folders/7l/hn (etc)/T/untitled (etc)/sketch_nov26a, there are several such paths.

In preferences I see the standard Sketch folder - ~/Documents/Arduino etc.

If I look in preferences.txt there is no entry for a /var/... folder

If I do an ls on the folder it all looks normal (not a link), but OSX finder displays th1.0.1e Sketch with a Parallels - which I have installed and do use, but it is not in use at this moment - marker.

There are several similar sketches so it seems to add one every time I open Arduino.

If I use Arduino 1.0 (newly opened from the Download) the same thing happens.

When in parallels I run Visual Studio 2012 with the Arduino for Visual Studio plugin - so it would appear that there is some interaction going on (I will copy this and post it to their forum as well).

Any ideas/comments will be welcome!

Problem solved - W8 dos not allow drivers without signatures to be loaded - you have to go into Settings and disable this feature.

The Arduino Ide runs just fine - no problems so, yes, running in a VM is not the problem.

The issue is that it cannot see any Serial Ports, so cannot upload an app to the board.

I am unable to install any drivers (let alone the FTDI ).

Thank-you for your suggestion - I have sent Eried a question. Eried's version fails to install the Drivers during the IDE installation process.

However I have I also downloaded and run the 'standard' Arduino IDE for Windows, where the installation readme says that Windows will install the required drivers when the Arduino Board is first connected.

This does not happen when running Windows 8 in a Virtual Machine.

I am trying to install on Windows 8 - running in Parallels on a Mac - it install OK but I cannot install the drivers for a UNO board during installation - nor when I drop all security settings.

Also when I run it I cannot see any Serial Ports under Tools drop down menu.

I have a similar problem when running a 'standard release' where Windows downloads/installs drivers when the Arduino is first plugged in - Windows does not see it behind the Virtual Machine.

Any suggestions will be welcome.

Thank-you

Thank-you

I am running under Windows 8.

Arduino erw 1.0.2 Configure Board Drivers brings up the dialog box, but fails to install any drivers.

If I look into the downloaded install folder there are no drivers.

In W8 Control Panel there are no ports shown in the Device Manager.
8  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Arduino running under Parallels VM [solved] on: November 22, 2012, 03:35:30 pm
I am using Mountain Lion OSX with Parallels VM (current versions)

I have tried running Arduino 1.0.1 and 1.0.2 (for Windows) under a Parallels Virtual Machine - in neither case does Arduino recognise a Serial Port - and so neither can do an upload.

I have ensured that the USB is assigned to the Virtual Machine, and it is listed as Vendor 2341-Communication.

I have no problems running Arduino on OSX (native).

Ideas please!

Thank-you

oops - I will slow down -

Blink runs in Arduino under OSX

Now I understand the Build Options - I get a clean build but when I try to UPLOAD the Blink app I get:

/Applications/Arduino.app/Contents/Resources/Java/hardware/tools/avr/bin/avrdude -D -patmega328p -C/Applications/Arduino.app/Contents/Resources/Java/hardware/tools/avr/etc/avrdude.conf -carduino -b115200 -P/dev/tty.usbmodem26421 -Uflash:w:Builds/embeddedcomputing.hex:i

Avrdude: can't open input file Builds/embeddedcomputing.hex: No such file or directory

Looks as though I have not done something!

My thanks and apologies for any confusion.

Thank-you all for your attention.

I have run Blink under OSX Arduino - on port tty.usbmodem*, (As reported by /dev/tty) and no problem.

It would appear that I need to have the Arduino plugged in when I use XCode (?)

I then returned to Xcode and set the Option to BUILD (as suggested) and got 30 plus failures concerned with wiFi.cpp  - e.g. wifi_drv.h no such file or directory. No Serial Port error reported.

Thank-you for such a quick response!

The only option I can have is All->My Mac 32bit.

The Project Targets/All Build Settings show
      Debug Board Port as tty.usbmodem*, and the Debug Board Tag as uno

Context - OSX MountainLion, Xcode4.5.2

I have installed embeddedXcode and I can (after some messing about ) generate an Arduino (Uno) project.

I find I cannot compile it  here is the error report - the Arduino is not connected and I have not editted the code created

I would like to be more explicit - but I simply dont know what to say - except that I would expect it to be able to compile a 'null program'! Earlier attempts encountered other errors ( like 'init()' not defined) - but these have now gone away!

Any help will be much appreciated before I am forced to use VisualStudio!

Thank-you
