Ah this brings up another interesting problem, although not at all related to arduino. I use mozilla aurora, the beta version of firefox. Whenever i go on the java website and it tries to detect anything about my java, the whole browser crashes as soon as i try to go onto a new page, aswell as it not being able to detect anything. I had convinced myself that it was to do with me using aurora instead of firefox, but could this have anything to do with my arduino problem?
I am running windows 7, have got the latest java, and have the latest arduino ide. Everytime i try to run arduino.exe the start panel appears for a second and then i get the error: Could not create the java virtual machine. I have tried with my old arduino software version, 0022, but it doesn't work either. Anyone got any suggestions?
I have downloaded the newest arduino software. I hav used it and it works, but i cant maximise the window or resize it. if i do i click on a toolbar and the thing freezes and then i hav to minimise it and bring it back up again. then it eventually crashes. ive heard of this problem on linux ubuntu but never on windows xp.
