Java 8 update 60 installed.
Arduino 1.6.5 (and I have tried to install the nightly build)

What’s going on?

The fix is available. Thanks for the information! :slight_smile:

Thanks for the fix. Just copied over the nightly build (1.6.6) and let it over write the previous (1.6.5) installation - problem gone :slight_smile:
