 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Just bought. Windows 7.  Went through the setup, downloaded environment, java development, drivers.  System in control panel says that arduino is on port 1, etc. I can't find an icon or way to actually launch arduino, though.  Went through the troubleshooting guide, but I haven't seen this problem listed.  

Update:

I found the green icon in the files, and when I click it, it starts to come on for just a second, showing the icon, copyright, etc , and then disappears.  The sketch screen never comes up.

Look for the IDE's executable in the installation folder. It should be something like "arduino.exe".

You may have to enable Windows Explorer to display the files' extensions, since it is hidden by default. From there just double click the executable file and it will launch.

Remember you also need a working Java Runtime Environment (it can be 32 or 64-bit).

I'm a total newbie   

How does one enable Windows Explorer to display the files' extensions?

I've looked in all the folders and I don't see the .exe file.  Should I maybe just uninstall and reinstall?

IT WORKS!!!  Wow, thank you, sir.  I just ran the "blink" program, and it's working.  There's also an icon on the desktop.  Problem solved.  Now I can join the exciting world of Arduino.  Thanks again for your help.
