Hi and sorry if this is in the knowledge somewhere I just cant find it.  If anyone can direct me to a post I will happily follow it up.

I have put my new Arduino onto my PC which is running windows xp.  The device manager show it under other devices but not in Ports.  The device manager says that no drivers are installed. 

I got my software off the arduino site but every time I go through the add hardware wizard it cannot find the software even if I navigate to the directory that contains it ........ any ideas anyone?

This is a common one that isn't usually touched on.   It isn't specifically an Arduino problem.

I take it you'e followed my screenshots setup which found its way into the official docs ?

If you have version 3 of the UNO, then make sure you have version 1.0 of the IDE.
The drivers for the version 3 boards where first included with the 1.0 IDE.

Hi Pluggy .............. yes I did follow the screenshots but obviously mine stopped when it said the software couldn't be found.  I also just checked the registry and the runonce key was already there.......... any other ideas?
