Our family used to have this REALLY old exercise maching (stationary bicycle kind), and it has this odd-looking snap that you put on your finger, and then plug the 1.5mm jack into the machine to measure your heartbeat. I always wondered how it worked. Now I know; on one half of the snap (the device looks like a wooden clothes pin), it has an ultrabright IR LED. On the other half, it has a light-to-frequency converter. I could salvage that...I'd be curious to see what the code looks like that you are using. Can you post it? Also, are you using an A/D converter?

I saw that light-to-freq. chip before. Are you using that over a CdS cell for better accuracy? You could possibly determine what KIND of light you are seeing with the abilities of this chip, no? Just out of curiosity, what are you using the TSL230 for??

Just to clarify, I have to run Arduino by clicking run.bat when it is set to that mode. I don't just set the run.bat file to Win95 compatibility and run the Arduino exec. That doesn't work. Just thought you might want to know that for future development.

Ok. I figured something out. This may help you solve some bugs. If I bring up properties on the run.bat file, and set it in compatibility mode for Windows 95, then it runs correctly! But if I try to set the actual main Arduino executable for compatibility mode for Win 95, it does not start up just as before. Unfortunetely, I can't seem to find a workaround for Processing... :-/

I did everything you told me to; even combinations of that. And yes, I added the -verbose to that section. It didn't do anything...

Nope. Same error as before.  :'(

Ok. It says " set JAVA_HOME="java\bin" " (JAVA_HOME set to). I have to admit, when I talked about programming in C, I meant to say variations of C. So, I edited the run.bat file in a text editor...but how can I re-compile it as a .batch file? With something like Bloodshed Dev C++?? I mean, you can't run a text file as a program...Thanks!

Erm...I don't quite understand what you're getting at. Could you elaborate a little. Thanks!

Ok. I cd'd to the directory, and tried to run run.bat. Didn't work; came up with the same error. I also tried to run the arduino exec. from there. Same thing. I checked for the rt.jar file. It was there. Just out of curiosity, I tried to run it. Should it have run properly? Because I tried to run it and it said: "Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from [...\...\ directory ---> rt.jar]. Hmmm...

That doesn't work, either. The command prompt comes up with an error that says: "Error occurred during initialization of VM java/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object. Maybe that'll help...?

Man, I just CAN'T get it to work at ALL now! I tried restarting my PC, updating Java, re-downloading the software...I don't know what to do!  :'(

I am using Windows XP Home Edition. Should I be using a version built into an installer (if that exists?). I did notice that the whole Arduino program doesn't have to be "installed" per say (it's just all in one directory with the executable that accesses the other files needed for it to run in the directory). When it fails to open (when I click it; whether I click the shortcut I mad on my desktop, or the actual executable in the Arduino software directory it does not make a difference), all that happens is my HDD drive flashes for like 5 to 8 seconds, and then stops, not having loaded Arduino. Oddly enough, I am now discovering this stands true for Processing as well. As for the opening files outside of Arduino, how is that not common? What if I want to move, manipulate, and organize my various source code files into categorized folders? I have a lot of different programs written in BASIC and C on my PC, and I like to move them around and manipulate them from Explorer (aka "My Computer") so I can find them easier in the future. I hope that doesn't sound picky or anything... :-/. Is the Arduino software as well as Processing in early development?? Thanks!

I just bought an Arduino, and I am now using the Arduino software. It seems easy to use, but I am having way too many problems with it. About 80% of the time when I try to open the program, it does not open at all. Also, when I want to open a sketch that I saved, (and yes, I fixed the file associations) it rarely opens. When Arduino DOES open, I have to go into FILE ---> SKETCH ---> OPEN and choose the file manually from the browser. Should I go back to an older version? I am curious why the programmers posted the Alpha version as the primary download like on Arduno.cc...Great software-- I just can't seem to be able to use it! Help!

Oh...Thanks. That's too bad...

I am using the newest release of the Arduino software, and I cannot seem to be able to open tabs. When I program, I am really picky about my workspace. I like to look back at other examples while I look at the current source code being edited. But the Arduino software won't let me open more than one tab. Why is this???   :-/
