I have tried getting the Arduino software up and running on my new HP Pavilion DV6248 which is running Windows Vista Home Premium. But alas, I cannot get it to work. That is, I CAN start the Arduino IDE, but when I try to compile the code (analog_read_led example), I get the following error messages:

Hi guys,

I have the same problem on my windows vista, checking que error message, in the snipet "Win32 error 5", consulting on windows error lookup, 5 means "Access denied", now, where is the access denied???

Anyone have an idea???

I don't have access to a machine running Vista, so I haven't been able to work on support for it.  It sounds as though avr-gcc in general has problems under Vista.  You could try searching for "winavr vista" or "avr-gcc vista" to see if anyone else on the internet has found a solution.  A quick look around didn't find anything too useful.  I'm hoping the WinAVR guys will get this figured out soon so that Arduino can just grab their tools.

WinAvr really have a problem with windows vista and have a patch to fix it, but how to fix it on arduino┬┤s software embedded avr compiler ???

Link to path for winavr with Avr studio: http://www.madwizard.org/extern/winavr-vista/

For me downloading Arduino version 10 was enough to get it working again on vista (and start arduino with right click and use 'run as administrator')...
