thanks eried!!

I'm a little lost with the last part?
"Open regedit and delete "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\javaw.exe\IsHostApp" key"

not sure where to look to delete it?  are you saying to just delete the app?

eried

No, it is to undo the patch. Just ignore the "Unninstall instructions" (you will love the new look of arduino ide in your windows 7 ;) haha)

(start, run: "regedit", enter, HKCR\Applications\javaw.exe\IsHostApp)

Thanks for the link to that.

I had not seen that before.

Is that your handywork?

Very nice, thanks.

I have posted about it on my code/software blog and it should turn up on the duinoaday homepage (http://www.duinoaday.co.uk) soon-ish.

[edit]Yep, there it is.[/edit]

Does this also work on:
Other versions of the arduino IDE?
Windows Vista/XP?

:)

eried

Yes, it works everywhere but for aestetics you need the "hack" just in Win 7
