how to set preference to arduino ide, what file exactly is it?

10 views (last 30 days)
trouble folowing these instruction,.
what file is the actual IDE? arduino-0022 does not exist. arduino.exe does not work.
(example from instalation instruction copied below)
a) Specify location of the Arduino IDE
>> arduino.Prefs.setArduinoPath('c:\Program Files\arduino\arduino-0022')
b) Specify Arduino board (Duemilanove, Uno, Mega, etc.)
>> arduino.Prefs.setBoard % see list of board options
>> arduino.Prefs.setBoard('uno') % choose a specific board
my arduino installation directory is: c:\arduino-1.0
target dir is c:\arduinotarget
my matlab comand errors:
>> arduino.Prefs.setArduinoPath('c:\arduino-1.0\arduino-0022') ??? Error using ==> Prefs>Prefs.setArduinoPath at 21 The specified folder (c:\arduino-1.0\arduino-0022) does not exist

there is not. i had just copied the instructions. I now have it set to just c:arduino-1.0 which contains arduino.exe

Dan, I would suggest using arduino-023 or arduino-022. Arduino-1.0 has significant changes as compared to the previous versions including reorganizing of some files (structure of the package, the header files etc! boards.txt is used to figure out the board settings and the placement of this file has changed with arduino 1.0)
(For example, Wprogram.h has been renamed to Arduino.h)

The release before arduino-1.0 was arduino-023 (and before that was arduino-022)
Just set the arduino root folder (under which arduino.exe is present)
