I'm new to the forum, relatively new to Arduino UNO and the Arduino IDE (1-2 weeks), and really
Arduino IDE reports the following error on compiling; note that this error occurs on all
sketches, including BLINK.ino (unmodified).
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.
C:\arduino-1.0\hardware\tools\avr\bin\avr-g++ returned 3
Just a few days ago, compile was successful with BLINK.ino, and many others. Now all sketches fail to compile resulting in the same error (above). Clearly something has changed with my system, but WHAT?
So far I've tried re-installing from the download:
<arduino-1.0-windows.zip> ... and re-installed the driver for Arduino UNO <Arduino UNO.inf>.
Also tried complete shut-down (and unplugged power supply from AC mains). No success. The compile error occurs whether or not Arduino UNO is connected via USB or not. Following the loopback test posted on the forum is successful, so it's not a communications problem, but rather something to do with the compile process.
I've searched through the forum, yet haven't found any issue exactly the same as this. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks in advance.
