Uploading programs to Sparkfun Pro Micro

Hello! I am unable to upload a program (the "blink" example) to my new Sparkfun Pro Micro (5v/16MHz). I'm on Windows 7 x64 + Arduino IDE 1.0.1 and have installed all required drivers and addons successfully (http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/338). The COM port is set correctly and there are no compilation errors. But the problem comes when the Arduino IDE runs avrdude. Here is the output:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\arduino-1.0.1\hardware/tools/avr/bin/avrdude -CC:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\arduino-1.0.1\hardware/tools/avr/etc/avrdude.conf -v -v -v -v -patmega32u4 -cavr109 -P\\.\COM38 -b57600 -D -Uflash:w:C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp\build6614488199660434471.tmp\Blink.cpp.hex:i

Somehow it gets stuck at the last command, "avrdude: Send: V [56]". Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Working now! Was a problem with the bootloader version. The pro micro addon I had installed was too new for the board.

I am having the same problem with the SparkFun 5V/16MHz Pro Micro (DEV-11098). Could you let me know which addon you used to get it to work in the end? The version I tried from the Getting Started tutorial page: http://dlnmh9ip6v2uc.cloudfront.net/datasheets/Dev/Arduino/Boards/ProMicro-Addon-190612.zip resulted in the following:

Hey guys! Did you manage to solve the problem? I've got exactly the same issue. Please help! :)

I figured out this problem.

The new addon "ProMicro-Addon-190612.zip" does not allow to upload any sketch!

But the old one addon dated 01/24/2012 is working well!

Guys, who are at the same problem like me, you may download workable addon here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3419665/Arduino-proMicro-Addon.zip

I have a problem with the same board (Arduino ProMicro 5v) and the error looks like this:

I don't know how to make it work!Please help me :(
