Currently using Arduino 1.0.4 on a Windows 7 (64-bit) machine (decently powered - Core i5 (quad-core), 6GB RAM). I am using Java SE 1.6.0_45.
The problematic behavior I observed, is very similar to what is mentioned in these very old threads (2011, and some as old has 2009) --http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=50826.0http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,50986.0.htmlhttp://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,46977.0.html
So, wondering if the problem still does exist in the latest rxtx lib used by Arduino ?
I do have 2 other (apart from Arduino's FTDI one) virtual COM-port drivers installed (but currently, the devices are not plugged-in). The other COM-port drivers are:
- PL2303HX based TTL-Serial converter
- USBASP programmer
The problem is quite bothersome. So, should I use the RXTX lib (hacked) mentioned in the solution circa. Feb 2011 ?
