Try this...

• Open Explorer (the thing used to browse the harddrive)

• Navigate to your Roaming folder.  On my computer, the following "address" works...

[font=Courier New]%APPDATA%[/font]

• From there, navigate into the Arduino folder.  The full path is probably something like this...

[font=Courier New]C:\Users\{YourUserName}\AppData\Roaming\Arduino[/font]

• Rename the [font=Courier New]preferences.txt[/font] file

• Try to run Arduino 1.0.2

Bummer.  The problem must be something else.  (Or the [font=Courier New]preferences.txt[/font] file is somewhere else on your computers.)

I vaguely recall that newer Arduino versions sometimes won't start because of a problem with an older [font=Courier New]preferences.txt[/font] file.  If that's the problem you are facing, renaming the file will allow the newer version to run.

Download 1.0.1 is my suggestion.

You said you tried 1.0.2 and 0016 and earlier.

That isn't 1.0.1.

If you moved the file, then it will not work. The arduino.exe file needs to be in the directory it was installed in. If you want an icon on the desktop, you must create a shortcut and move it to your desktop.

When i dounload the file,i did double click to (exe) for instal ,nothing happen.
I do this again and again many times. This is the problem.

There isn't really an "install" last I checked. You unzip it into a local directory, and it is installed. I just installed v1.0.2 on my Windows XP box just now, and it downloaded, unzipped, and ran fine.

What version of Windows are you using? I hear Windows 8 has a security function that you must set to run executable programs downloaded from the internet.
