Hi,

I’m new to this myself, but I just finished reading this PDF.

It outlines a simple procedure to install the software and to see if your setup is correct (blinking LED test). Have you tried this? Just a thought.

Also, this area may be of general help…

The Arduino website is sooooooo deep. There’s almost too much info on here, yet it all looks relevant!

Hope this helps.
