I am using an Arduino Pro mini 5V board. Win 8.1
Just for completeness here is also the history of my problem:
I started with IDE 1.6.7 and everything worked fine while my project was growing. Because I am putting out some sound on a pin, I had to modify the files Arduino.h and Tone.cpp where I implemented some additional functions.
That worked already fine.
Then I got some strange errors (“143% of storage used” - I solved that already) so I had to modify my code further and suddenly even the initialization routine of the board would not work as before.
So I installed IDE 1.6.8. This IDE wanted the modified files Arduino.h and Tone.cpp in my sketch folder.
When I compile that, there are no errors.
When I connect my board (via FTDI cable) the green LED on the board keeps blinking (I tried it for more than 30 minutes) but never connects.
When I reinstall IDE 1.6.7 and start it, it connects instantly with the board. But the problem is, that my project does not compile anymore because my functions that I created inside Arduino.h and Tone.cpp “are not declared in this scope” (even though I replaced the original files).
Can anyone help me with this issue ?
(either get IDE 1.6.8 connecting to the board or IDE 1.6.7 finding my functions)
Thank you in advance.
