 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Like the title said, I have some problems installing the Arduino UNO board in Windows XP, I follow step by step this guide (http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Windows#toc4) but when system should say me that the wizard has finished installing the software, it doesn't. Instead of this, it says that there was a problem in the installation.
The drivers version is 0022, downloaded from this site http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

Thanks for helping.

Did you select the drive folder from the arduino installation when you were installing? If not, you must select to manually install the hardware and select the drivers folder as the place to install from.

I choose the drivers folder inside arduino0022 folder, should I download something else apart from arduino0022 files that I described?

PD: Sorry about my english... Im from spain.

Hi Alex,
Did you follow the section with this heading:
"Installing drivers for the Arduino Uno with Windows7, Vista, or XP:"   ??

Did you: 
"# Finally, navigate to and select the Uno's driver file, named "ArduinoUNO.inf", located in the "Drivers" folder of the Arduino Software download (not the "FTDI USB Drivers" sub-directory). "  ??

If so, what happened then??

In the installation process I navigate to arduino0022/drivers (not choosing the FTDI USB drivers directory), but I can't select that file, just the general folder. The file exists, I see it if I go to the directory, but in the drivers installation process doesn't appear.

Sorry for reflooting.... but I really want to use Arduino and I´m desperate. The installation at the end days it can't find the file, but I extract all the files from arduino 0022.rar like the installation process say...

Why can't I install drivers?

Have you been through this ?

One wonders where you're getting the Arduino software from , since the official version is a zip file.

From here: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software (windows version)
It's a zip, I open it with winrar, because of that my mistake.

I follow all the steps from the guide in the web, or that guide, but in the cap before last, The process says me it couldn't find the file and the installation fail.

Extract the zip file onto your desktop, then explore the extracted folder and confirm the drivers folder looks something like this :



I appreciate this is 0021 but 0022 should be the same.
