Please help me, you are my only hope. Though I might not be in such a desperate Situation as Princess Leia, I still miss my Arduino IDE a lot, being in the middle of a Major Project.
So it all started yesterday: I decided to create a library for my useful function, so that they do not litter my sketch (less Scrolling, more clean code etc.). I used IDE 1.6.0.'s in-build library creator, with fatal consequences (to my own defense: I did not know that it is Buggy and created a nearly impossible to delete quasy-infinite Directory chain...). After this mistake had been done, I tried to evoke the IDE, I got an error message: "An error occured while starting the application." A short Research on the web persuaded me that it was a direct consequence of the infinite Folder stucture. I spent 2 hours trying to delete that Folder chain, utilizing some freewares promising to solve the Problem, all to no avail. Reading through all the S.O.S. threads about it on the web made it clear, that up till now there is no solution to this Problem (oh please, prove me wrong!!!).
Due to the fact that Arduino already made a window Pop up Advertising the new IDE Version 1.6.4, I decided it was a great opportunity to uninstall the old IDE and install the new one. I did it, the new IDE 1.6.4. opens the Arduino logo, but shortly after displaing "Starting", it simpl Closes without any further comment.
OK, I decided I Switch back to IDE 1.6.0., my good old workhorse. But sadly after reinstall, it still says the same (new IDE was uninstalled).
Now I'm left without Arduino IDE (and with a nasty, annoying Folder chain)... please help me! What did I do wrong and how can I make it work again? :'(
