Java Development Kit 1.5.0 needed

by ki0g on Fri Feb 01, 2013 10:57 pm

This is the message I get when trying to start the program. There is no Java in the download file but it appears in some of the lesson illustrations. Win7.

Strange. The standard Arduino IDE package usually runs on Win7 with no problems.
Try re-downloading from here: http://arduino.cc/en/main/software

If you still have problems with Java, the latest Java downloads can be found here:

The fresh download seems to have solved this problem, thank you. :D

I get a flashing LED and I feel like the Nobel folks will be calling. This stuff is dangerous :D
