I am new to the Arduino, but not to programming.
I am trying to start using an Arduino clone. I have downloaded the IDE (V1.0.2) and trying the Blink sketch.
I get the same OUTPUT error message. If I look at the IDE, at the bottom in the 'debug area' there is a series of messages, the first is 'Blink.ino:10:21: error: Arduino.h: No such file or directory'
which I think indicates the basic problem.
I have searched my arduino directory and I find that Arduino.h is in the arduino\hardware\arduino\cores\arduino directory.
So what is the problem?! From previous programming experience I would tend to look for a 'typo' in a link file or similar.
However it is a 'Bad Show' if new users are foiled at the first hurdle.
I do have a Alpha copy of the IDE V0021. The sketch runs fine in this, so it is not a OS problem. Searching the arduino directory of this version I find that there is no arduino.h file. Is this a clue? Did someone forget to change a path in a definitions file of the more recent versions?
Just for completeness I am running WinXP with all updates.
I Hope this helps.
I can confirm that putting the following at the top of the script fixes the issue:-
I have tested this with the blink sketch with V1.0.3 and V1.0.3 of the IDE.
However I think it is a 'Poor Show' to release updates that are not fit for purpose, and do not seem to have undergone any basic regression testing! See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regression_testing
