I have a Windows XP PC with service pack #2. Arduino-0018 doesn't do anything when i try and run it. The start up windows appears and then disappears. ?

Following the splashscreen, the Java Virtual Machine is supposed to be displayed, with the Arduino IDE running as a Java application in the JVM. Since that is not happening, it strongly suggests that you have incompatible versions of Java installed.

PRH

Thanks for the reply. According to Java I have version 6 update 21 installed. Is there something else from Java I need to have?

PaulS

Version 6 Update 21 from whom? Sun? The Sun version is the only one that appears to play well with the Arduino IDE.

PRH

Sorry, yes it is Sun Java. I even reinstalled it and it doesn't work. I get the Arduino splash screen for a second or two and then nothing.

PaulS

How about un-installing it altogether, and re-install the Arduino software. It comes with a version of the JVM that should work.

PRH

That seems to have worked. Thanks again.
