I recently installed the Arduino IDE 1.05 r2 version on my machine. I can get my board working (Arduino Pro Micro as well as UNO) but have been experiencing extremely slow compilation issues (it takes minutes instead of seconds to compile).
Looking at post http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=139818.0 , I took the following measures. - turned off BlueTooth - removed my antivirus - looked for "filters" using
- re-installed the Arduino IDE quite few times
These did not work. I then installed the Arduino IDE in a different folder. On the positive side, the compilation speed then dramatically improved. On the negative side, the serial monitor stopped working
IDE installed in C:\ProgramFIlesX86 standard program folder - compilations run very slow - Serial works fine - Observations/guesses:
- it looks like the IDE is recompiling every single file every time (i.e. even "hello world type "program take ages to compile
- It seems Windows 8 prevents files from being written on the programFile folders (e.g. If I run command line arduino --l4j-debug, IDE starts but no log file is created)
IDE installed on D:\ (data drive) - compilations run quick, sketch run fine - Serial monitor launches fine but it does not receive PrintSerial messages anymore - Observation:
If someone has alread ran into such issues, any suggestion would be welcome.
