Nevermind, fixed it by changing the COM port!

Hello, I was just wondering if there are any other compilers and uploaders available for Windows XP. I tried using the IDE, but it will not upload to the Arduino. Anyone know why?

IDE 1.0 Error: avrdude outasync or something like that

Does your PC recognize the board when you plug it into the PC? If not you have a USB driver installation problem most likely. If it does recognize the board, did are you selecting the proper com port number and board type in the Arduino IDE before you hit verify or upload?

Hmm. I checked in the device manager, and it said the Uno R3 was on COM18. When I tried uploading to the board before, it would just use the default COM3, and that is why it errored. I set it to COM18, and it uploaded just fine! Thanks :) Haha now I need to install all the librarys and code on this computer. It is worth it though to have everything on one PC!

Your welcome.

The Arduino IDE when first opened, just asks the PC's OS for a list of all active comm ports, the IDE has no idea which active comm ports might be attached to arduino boards or just standard comm ports available on that specific PC. It's up to the user of the IDE (you) to select the proper comm port number for the attached arduino board before doing a upload action, only you can tell it that information. The board selection requirement is so the IDE can tell the compiler what type of AVR controller chip your specific arduino board uses, and must also be made before an upload operation can be performed successfully.
