Hello, I am running the Arduino 007 IDE on Windows XP Home Service Pack 2. The only way I can get the IDE to open is by running the run.bat file. Is there anyway for me to fix it so I can just run the arduino.exe file?
I had problems booting the arduino ide too, but it wasn't a java problem..(at the beginning I thought it was) it was due to a high assigned port number to the USB-COMport (it was on port20) and it seemed that the arduino hanged while scanning for all ports.
if you have this problem, just change it to a lower port and it will load
