Hello all,

I am having trouble uploading 'Blink' to my Arduino Diecimila.  I suspect that it is Vista as I can get it to work successfully on an XP machine (friend's) on first pass.  I know it works on hers because the yellow LED flashes as it should, and I get a success message.  My Vista Home Premium has SP1 installed.

The error I get is:

Couldn't determine program size: /cygdrive/c/Arduino-0009/tools/avr/bin/avr-size: 'C:\Users\BUTTER~1\AppData\Local\Temp\build41619.tmp\Blink.hex': No such file



I suspected that it was write access issue, but I have tried both putting the program in a My Document subfolder, as well as in c:/arduino/.  I noticed that some other files are generated after I click 'upload file'

I also noted that I get this error even when I press the 'compile' key -- looks like a play button.

I have tried three different example codes, all with similar errors.  I have gone through the troublehsooting guide, ensured that I have the correct COM port 4 selected (determined from Device Manager), ensured that I chose ATMega168, as well as tried multiple USB ports (all of which work with other USB devices).  I also have no reason to suspect that the board is damaged as it is able to download code from another computer.

Do you have any suggestions?  I have searched the forums with 'vista' keyword reading all the english posts and I have not found a similar problem.  Am I going crazy?  :)

Please help.  Thanks!
