after an attempt to install amtel dev studio 6.2, i ended up having to install the ide version 1.58 on the machine with 1.6 already installed, after the ide version 1.6 compatable with the amtell dev studio was automatically installed and updated the stand alone ide started to behave badly,
the menus can take anything from 6 seconds+ to populate, some just wont? and the lag results in an unusable ide.
i have uninstalled and deleted all ide s/w bar m$ visual studio express and reinstalled the arduino 1.6 ide and the behavior persists?
this is runniing on a win8 pc I5, 8gb ram…
checking java installations i have,
java 7 update 55
java 7 update 67 (64bit)
java 8 update 25 (64bit)
java SE devkit update 25 (64bit)
