Topic: What's the relationship between the two pathes of arduino? (Read 2614 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi, I installed arduino ide 1.8.10 in the path of "D:\arduino".

And I find that there is also a path related to arduino, which is "C:\Users\wgt04\AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\arduino\hardware\avr\1.8.2", it seems that this path is created automatically when installing the arduino ide 1.8.10.

Can anyone tell me what's the relationship between the two pathes above? And the role of the second path?

Best regards.

C:\Users\wgt04\AppData\Local\Arduino15 is the "data folder" of the Arduino IDE. It is used for several things.

Your Arduino IDE preferences are stored in C:\Users\wgt04\AppData\Local\Arduino15\preferences.txt.

The Boards Manager and Library Manager index JSON files are downloaded to C:\Users\wgt04\AppData\Local\Arduino15 and cached in C:\Users\wgt04\AppData\Local\Arduino15\cache. Their activity is logged to C:\Users\wgt04\AppData\Local\Arduino15\logs.

Hardware packages installed via Boards Manager are installed to C:\Users\wgt04\AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages.

Hardware packages and libraries are downloaded to C:\Users\wgt04\AppData\Local\Arduino15\staging before being installed. The staged files are left under that folder to make re-installation faster should these files be needed again. Over time the toolchain archives in that folder can add up to gigabytes, so you might look there if you ever need to free up some disk space.

C:\Users\wgt04\AppData\Local\Arduino15 is created automatically. C:\Users\wgt04\AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\arduino\hardware\avr\1.8.2 was only created when you chose to update Arduino AVR Boards to 1.8.2 via Boards Manager.

You might want to look in to the "portable" feature of the ide.  That'll let you keep all the arduino stuff in one place

Hi, pert,
Thank you for telling me the detailed answer. Now I understand the pathes.
Best regards.
