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?

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 smiley-wink 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.
