Followed several of the guides but cannot my new UNO board to install. Windows 7 OS.
Dowloaded drivers from http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
tried 0022 and 1.0
When I plug in my board I get solid green and solid orange light. Auto hardware update fails after about 2 - 3 minutes.
I go to device manager and under Other Devices I find ATmega16u2 DFU
Right click-->Update Driver Software
navigate to the unzipped folder (previously copied to my desktop)
tried it with and without include subfolders. I am careful to only navigate to root folder
and not go to
C:\Users\john\Desktop\arduino-0022\drivers\FTDI USB Drivers
and when I hit Next I get message
Windows was unable to install your ATmega16u2 DFU
Windows could not find driver software for your device
Feel like I'm doing everything right? Any help would be so appreciated. Was hoping to start playing around today.
Bad board perhaps? I saw some posts that indicate the orange light should blink but mine is solid.
