Interesting... have you checked if the 1.5 solves anything? I believe they rebuilded most part of the code for that version?
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"
Just a quick Q: does the installer install its own 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

Problem solved - W8 dos not allow drivers without signatures to be loaded - you have to go into Settings and disable this feature.seehttp://www.bryonconnolly.com/windows-8-arduino-driver-install

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

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.
