Topic: [SOLUTION] Arduino IDE not opening or flashing and disappearing (Read 245 times) previous topic - next topic


P.S: I have been looking for a solution to this problem for about a week now. Luckily for me. An idea popped in from the online research I did.

I hope this helps someone. If it did please comment. Thank you.

The cause of this problem of the Arduino IDE (whether for Intel Galileo or Arduino) not opening is a conflict between the 32- bit java installed in the Arduino IDE install directory
and the 32-bit java installed on your system.

To quickly solve this problem.

1. Delete all the contents in the java directory of your Arduino installation location.
e.g: "C:\arduino-1.5.3-Intel.1.0.4\java" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\java"

2. Copy the contents in the java directory of your system

e.g:   For 32-bit systems- "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_25\"

         For 64-bit systems-  "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_25\"

3. Paste the all the files you copied in step 2 above into the arduino java directory in step 1.

4. Click on arduino.exe in the install diretory. The arduino IDE comes to life.
