The Port in the arduino software is selected with com 1
This almost for sure not the proper com port your arduino board would be using. Maybe you didn't install the USB serial driver needed for your board. Does the PC acknowledge your board when you first plug it into the PC? Are there any other com port numbers listed under the tools/serial ports menu on the arduino IDE?
Barging into this thread.I'm having this issue of my PC not recognizing my SMD unit. It works on my Ubuntu machine but on Windows will not acknowledge it. At its current state pin 13 LED is just blinking.My computer recognized a "normal" Arduino Uno R3 this past semester but it currently will not recognize my new SMD board.How do I go about installing USB serial drivers?Thanks.
