arduino ide

by technocrafter on Mon Mar 23, 2009 12:39 am

I downloaded the programs along with the latest Drivers.

It all worked great. I put a icon on my desktop and all I had to do was double click it and the ide popped, and all
of it worked fine.

Then one day this past week it came up with a message"Arduino as stopped working"

I looked arround and found another program named run.bat. When run it brought up a dos black window
indicating JAVA was loaded. Then the Arduino IDE popped up. The IDE works ok. The dos window shows a copy
of all data that is displayed on the bottom of the IDE.

When I close the Java/Dos window it also closes the IDE.

How do I get back to just double clicking on "arduino" to brink up the IDE without the Black Dos window??
Any one have an idea...

Happened to me when Java said there was an update available and I said yes.

Haven't ever seen a "fix", but the run.bat file is there specifically to get the IDE running when it wouldn't otherwise.
