Topic: vista and arduino (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic



i was trying to install arduino007 on windows vista , but the arduino starts already complaning when i try to compile code, it says:

avr-gcc: _spawnvp: No such file or directory

Couldn't determine program size:
No such file

did some one of you have an idea what to do,

i found just one old post about problems with winavr and vista in the arduino forum, but there wassn't any solution to solv this problem,... so maybe now some one have a clue,



Hey, there's a suggested fix here: http://www.madwizard.org/extern/winavr-vista/.  Can you give it a shot and see if it fixes the problem?  If so, I can include the updated files with Arduino 0008.



i'm not so shure how to do it, should I just replace the "avr-gcc.exe" in the tools/avr/bin folder but where to place the "msys-1.0.dll s" ??

or did i have to install winavr (but how to contact this to the arduinoprogramm) ?




I have the same problem, and also I can't fix it with the patch (I've even tried copying the WinAVR files to the Tools map of the Arduino software, but with no result).

Can a solution be found quickly? My new laptop came with Windows Vista and it's kinda awkard that I can't run Arduino with it (yet).

Thanks in advance to anyone trying to solve this problem!


The new version of winarv (20070525) fix the problems with windows vista: only replace the folder tools\avr\ with the new version and have fun...


Alright, this works! Thanks a lot...!



it works now also for me with the avr, thx

but we got a new problem with the java when we try to upload the program to the arduino:

java.io.IOException: CreateProcess: C:\Users\Sabine\Desktop\arduino-0008\tools/avr/bin/uisp -dpart=atmega168 -dprog=stk500 -dserial=/dev/com4 -dspeed=19200 --upload if=C:\Users\Sabine\Desktop\arduino-0008\examples\Digital\Blink\applet\Blink.hex error=2

My guess is that it's because of the forward slashes in the command (they probably should be backslashes).  It works on previous versions of Windows, but probably isn't the right way to be doing things.  I can try to build a new version of pde.jar that uses the appropriate slashes, but not until later today.  If you need it sooner than that, you could try checking the code out of subversion and making the change yourself.  


Whoops, never mind.

I think WinAVR probably doesn't include uisp.  Try copying the one from the Arduino distribution to that location (C:\Users\Sabine\Desktop\arduino-0008\tools/avr/bin/), and see if it works.
