 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Since I first Dl'd the arduino IDE, trying to run the application would result in a pretty generic crash. Running run.bat starts it up just fine, but it forces a change in color scheme (im using Windows Vista) due to some incompatibility, which is very annoying, and isn't a real good solution

However, deleting or renaming the java folder allows it to start without issue. However, I wonder if this is not something I should be doing, even though I have been using it so far. I wonder if this might break anything that I'm not seeing...

Any ideas?

EDIT: It might be relevant to note that I have two versions of the Java Runtime Environment installed on my computer--JRE versions 1.4 and 1.6

Its fine doing this, nobody ever reported any broken functionality after deleteing the local java folder

By deleting the local Java folder, you are forcing the IDE to use your installed version, which happens to be newer and has support for Vista's Aero theme.

As Eberhard pointed out, no one has ever had a problem that I know of, myself included!

I figured that deleting the local java folder would make it use what I had installed, but I was only concerned because I wasn't sure *which* version of the JRE it is using (1.4 or 1.6). I would get rid of 1.4, but I need it to run an old remote management interface applet for my server.

thanks.
