Arduino Software + Windows 7 = Basic Colour Scheme

Whenever I open the Arduino software to create/edit sketches, my computer (running Windows 7 RC) switches into a Basic Colour Scheme, and remains that way until I close the software. Im assuming this is because the software uses Java. However, Frostwire uses Java aswell but doesnt cause the colour scheme change. Is this a known issue, or is this something Im missing?


Delete (or rename) the java folder in the Arduino folder. Just make sure that you have java installed.

That fixed it, thanks! Is it just because you guys package an older version of Java with the IDE?

Perhaps you could have a check for the Java version and select which install to use based on age.

Arduino 0017 will include an updated Java on Windows that supports Aero Glass.
