Failure with uploading "EEPROM"

Drivers installed fine. The board is also blinking by itself, without the upload. I have a Arduino Diecimila.

I'm using Vista 64-bit Ultimate (it drops out of aero in a java environment I guess)

Picture of the board...

Thanks for any help :)

Can you copy the full text of the error you get and paste it here? It's possible that the software simply won't work under the 64-bit version of Windows Vista. You're not running cygwin, are you (or anything else that uses a cygwin dll)?

I don't remember ever seeing cygwin before, but it's possible that it's running, I've got way too much stuff installed atm.

Can you try Arduino 0010?

Still giving me some sort of error when I open the program, but it uploads! Thanks for the help :)
