trying to start

hello there,
I’m trying to get an arduino decimila to work on windows, I installed FTDI drivers but I’m not really sure if everything hapens the right way
is there a test to let me know if my board is installed right?


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.


actually you had been very helpful
