Hello,

I just received my arduino and I'm trying to get myself up and running with it. I have the latest arduino-ide (0015). When i double click on the arduino.exe it loads up but the window is blank.

Any ideas?
Thanks

I am having the same problem i.e. blank window.
My OS is Windows XP Home edition SP3 Ver 5.1
Additional info is I have Java (Version 6 Update 13) installed.
Sure would be nice to get it working.

Good News:
Edit the run.bat file and follow the directions down at the bottom of the file:
:Error
echo *** Error: cannot execute Arduino
echo *** Reason: lacking the directory where to find Java in your computer
echo ***
echo *** Fix: Edit run.bat and add the JAVA_HOME directory
echo ***      at the 'set JAVA_HOME=""' line
echo ***
echo *** then call the batch file run.bat in order to execute Arduino

Work fine now.   ... jon
