 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi all, pretty new at this, been playing with arduino for a couple of weeks now, the arduino code seems pretty straight forward but trying to kill two birds with one stone here and also learn c++, would like to control the LED (switch on and off) on the arduino board from a pc via the usb port, anybody written a c++ windows application? If so what compiler was used and does anybody have the code? I haven’t done C++ programming in about 15 years.

Thank you in advance.

I think I have the same problem too. I think Serial Communication is the best way. My post: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=167042.0

You will need something like WinAVR:

http://winavr.sourceforge.net/

And AVRDUDE:

You can also use Firmata to do that:
