Hi All.

I have Arduino 1.8.4 (which includes Arduino AVR Boards 1.6.20). I recently updated boards to 1.6.23. As a result:
  • Arduino AVR Boards 1.6.20 reside in c:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\arduino\avr\
  • Arduino AVR Boards 1.6.23 reside in %UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\arduino\hardware\avr\1.6.23\

The problem is that apparently it's boards 1.6.20 that are in use. Any idea why?

I judge that by the fact that the following 1.6.20 files are used rather than their 1.6.23 counterparts:
  • boards.txt
  • platform.txt
  • platform.local.txt
  • libraries\EEPROM\src\EEPROM.h
  • ...


Are you running the Arduino IDE in portable mode? That would be indicated by the existence of a c:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\portable folder.


Nope. Here's the contents of my C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino:
