I just received starter pk with uno R3. i have win xp. I then downloaded arduino-1.0.1-windows. I followed install directions as closely as possible but think I did something wrong. In device mgr under ports it says Arduino Uno R3 (COM4). When I go to open app it loads so far then shuts down. What am i missing or doing wrong? Please help, this is all new to me. Thanx
When I go to arduino folder to open app I click on the teal circle w/infinity sign,security window opens asking to run and loading goes so far as the teal opening page, then i hear that ominous windows sound that says your done dealing and then loading stops abruptly. there is no error message or anything else.
It simply says "Open file- security warning" Pubisher cannot be verified. Are You sure you want to run this software?
Name Arduino exe. Publisher: Unknown Pub. Type: application from: C:\ Documents and settings etc Run Cancel File does not have valid digital signature etc. thats it. It doesnt identify any thing else. where else canI look to determine which security pk i have installed. any other options i jcan check on?
It could be just XP's security settings set to a very high level. It has been a while since I worked on an XP system. If you can open you security settings in the control panel you might be able to lower the defense slightly.
Also in the control panel (I think under Administrative Tools) there is the system event log. You might check that for any warnings or errors logged at about the time you try to run the IDE>
I don't see any way to lower security settings. In the event log I can see several places where i had an app hang but don't know what applies to what. Should I switch to my win 7 laptop? would that be easier?
