I have a serious problem with the serial monitor since a couple of days. I have been using Arduino 1.0 on win7 x64 for a month or two now and the serial monitor was working fine all along. But since two days I cannot open serial monitor. When I click the on serial monitor from the drop down, the monitor starts off in the background and I can see it minimized. But when I try to maximize, it simply does not come up. It just stays there. I know it is working since in win7 we can see a snapshot of whats going on in the minimized windows.
Can some one please help me with this ??
Marked as solved. Nick Gammon.
Never mind it is working now.
Did you make changes to get it working? If so, it might be helpful for others to explain what you did.
Ohh I am sorry. I restarted my pc and it began working.
Its really weird because I tried restarting both the serial monitor and my pc before and it did not work then. Guess its something with the win7 not the arduino sdk.
I am having the same issue but a restart is not working... is there any idea of what is causing this?
The only thing I can think of that is related is I just started developing using the rxtx library, is it possible that I corrupted something? I also re-installed the arduino software so I dont know what else to try.
Please help, thanks,
