It shows how to install the software and to upload your first program to an Arduino board. Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. The STK protocol was originally designed for a serial rs connection, nowadays, a USB to serial converter is used to provide a direct connection with your PC. Start the Arduino suite, when it is finished open a serial example project via the File menu.
Before you can upload a program to your Arduino Board you need to configure the suite for the board. First select the correct board:.
Or you can also upgrade your Window system. Extract the zip file after download. Usually the downloaded file is saved under the Download folder. Open the extracted folder and find the installation file install. Right click on it and selected Run in Terminal in the drop-down list.
Then the system will install the Arduino software. After installation, you'll see the IDE icon on your desktop. You still have another method to accomplish it. In the folder, right click on a blank area and select Open in Terminal in the drop-down list. Now a window pops up and you've at the folder where the file install. Type in.

Open a file in the Examples and check the details. There are many example sketches under the Examples which are built-in code files in the Arduino software. You can start from these files if you're just starting to learn Arduino.
Also when you click Upload , the code will be compiled. After the modification, you need to log out and log in to take it into effect. Now open the Arduino IDE again. Upload the code. If "Done uploading" appears at the bottom of the window, it means the sketch has been successfully uploaded.
