Interesting... have you checked if the 1.5 solves anything? I believe they rebuilded most part of the code for that version?


No. But given the tendency of the Arduino folks to simply leave these long standing issues in the "too hard" basket in the past, I would be very surprised if anything significant has changed. At this stage, I really don't believe they have either the will or the wherewithal to fix it. It seems to be classified under "acceptably broken".

My solution has been simply to avoid it altogether, but that has also meant avoiding the IDE altogether. Which is why I was wondering if it would be easy to actually put a "bypass" option within the IDE itself, analogous to "use external editor" option.

Can you post some code that should compile if that option exists? I am not sure where I have to start to add the "skips"

Skipping the lines that actually write out the attempted automatically generated prototypes into the .cpp file would be the minimal change that should do it. The other stuff it does probably doesn't matter in terms of stability.

Just a quick Q: does the installer install its own Java runtime?

Yes, it uses an internal (updated) java runtime

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

Can the installation of its own java runtime be optional, if I want to use my already-installed Java runtime?

The thing is that since I use a SSD drive, I am a bit (too) concious about wear leveling, so I tend to limit the writes as much as possible in the SSD drive. Besides, space is kind of a constraint as well.

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

Yes, it is the same the first post says.

Yes, but without it, the package will stay the same in size, it will only skip to write the Java folder, that is what you want? (another option is to detect if java is present and only download it if is not in the machine) in that way the package probably will be less than 5 MB in size.

Very handy, works well (takes me back to Win98 !!!).

Windows 98? I hope that is something good :D

Would you be interested in helping me with my new IDE?  I'm a GUI expert but I'm not a Windows user so the Windows experience for ArduinoX will always be sub-par. I'm especially interested in your expertise with app packaging and drivers installation.  I have no idea how to do those.

eried,
Have you & Josh Marinacci considered getting together?

This running update of 3 IDEs is a bit confusing.

Well, I guess 4 now with the DUE IDE also.


5 IDE's heheh... my original idea fixing the things (years ago) was to get something fixed someday in the official ide. Since that will never happen, I decided to build this mod mainly just for windows+arduino users (specially for me).

I don't know if everyone noticed but the crusade seems to be pretty effective. Almost no one is now posting or discussing the same drivers/sloweness/installation issues in the forum (I was pretty tired seeing the same issues again and again, even in some 'arduino workshops' a big part of the time is used just to teach how to get the IDE running)

I don't have any other board rather than a couple of arduinos, I have received some requests from people because they experience a lot of the same issues in derivated IDE's but besides providing feedback and hints, doing something it is  just too much work.

So, in conclusion, this mod is just a temporal solution, I may eventually update the ide to 1.5 but Josh solution is a much better approach and I will love to  see any alternative IDE replacing the Arduino IDE in the future, but our work is not very shareable.

G'Day,
I've been trying the mod with good results except when I drag the top of the window upwards to the top of the desktop to have the window full length (Win 7 Home premium 64bit). When I do that it freezes until I reduce the height o f the window.
