I've been searching the internet for a solution to my problem but nothing really came. Here's my setup : Athlon 64/Win2k SP4 (fresh install) and Arduino 0007 (version 0006 gives me exactly the same error).
The problem is that I cannot start the software at all. As soon as I lauch it, I get a window saying that arduino.exe has generated errors and must be stopped. The Dr Watson message says that arduino.exe generated an exception 'c0000005' at address '784AD79A (RtlZeroHeap)'. I also tried to used the run.bat file but in that case, I get : 'Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: \java'.
The strange thing is that I have nearly the same setup at home (Sempron 64/Win 2k SP4) and I have never had a single problem.
At first, I thought it may be a problem with the Sun Java installed (JRE 1.5.0 update 10 i586), which was highly unprobable cause I know Arduino uses its own java but just in case, I removed it from the system with no help.
Then, as I mistakely installed IE6 in English instead on French (the Win2k is in French), I reinstalled IE6 in French and updated Windows with all the security and stability patches. No success.
Is someone else got the problem? Thanks in advance for any help.
