I don't know about mac but if you run arduino sketch on a PC, you will need to specify the path to the arduino sketches folder. The user libraries are inside the sketch folder so if you don't specify its location, arduino can't find those libraries. Arduino keeps its standard libraries in its own folders so no problem with those. For upgrading to arduino 1.0, you will need to watch our a few things. Have a look at this:

Sounds a bit like a downgrade.


That's laughable. It surly sounds like the "mac is always better than PC" logic with no solid grounds. Better not use this with arduino against other platforms. Everything has something good, unless it is a mac, oops I just used it against mac. :P

I copied the contents of my Arduino folder from the Mac Directory and placed them inside of the PC's Arduino folder


Did you just copy the entire Arduino.app folder to C:\Program Files, or what exactly did you copy?

I think you'd need to copy the libraries you'd want from

Arduino.app / Contents / Resources / Java / Libraries

to

c:\Program Files \ Arduino \ Libraries

Regarding Mac vs PC, I'm not touching that one with a ten foot logic probe.

Yeah it's called "tounge in cheek", but it's semi- serious based on experience  :P. I'm not biased towards Macs or against PCs. Any OS switch to Windows strikes me as a downgrade (e.g from OSX, Linux, NetBSD, FreeBSD, etc). You can upgrade that new PC by upgrading its OS  ]:D
