Arduino IDE can not see Arduino-Tiny

Hello forum, I am not 100% sure I am posting to the correct section of the forum. If I am wrong, I do apologise.

I am having problems getting the Arduion IDE to find Arduino-Tiny. I have followed the instructions to the letter (I think). I am using Windows 7.

In the IDE, I went to File->Preferences and ensured that my sketchbook location was: C:\Projects\Arduino. I then shutdown the IDE.

I went to C:\Projects\Arduino and created a folder called hardware (C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware). Then extracted the contents of arduino-tiny-0150-0020.zip to the C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware folder.

Next, I copied the file C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware\tiny\avr\Prospective Boards.txt to C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware\tiny\avr\boards.txt

I stated the IDE, went to Tools->Boards.... Unfortunately, there is nothing new inside.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your time, Harold Clements

C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware\tiny\avr\boards.txt

Should be:

 C:\Projects\Arduino\hardware\tiny\boards.txt

Thanking you Erni, you are indeed correct.

Unfortunately, the README documentation has the location incorrect.

Thanking again, Harold Clements

You downloaded the version for Arduino 1.5 (that’s what the “-0150-” in the filename means). Try the one for Arduino 1.0.
