 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi,
Is the Arduino program and arduino drivers compatible with Windows 8? It would really help to know. If arduino is not compatible with windows 8 is there a easy noob way to let me be able to do arduino? My problem might not be because of Windows 8 it could be completely un-related.

Have a look on google, there should be lots of info for installing non digitally signed drivers. ( a windows setting has to be disabled )
Once installed, if the IDE is not working, try running the IDE in compatibility mode for an earlier windows ( if windows 8 includes this option ).

Compatible drivers with Windows 8 will be included in the next IDE version 1.0.4. or in the 1.5.2 beta.  smiley-roll-sweat
