When you connect the board, Windows should initiate the driver installation process (if you haven't used the computer with an Arduino board before).

On Windows Vista, the driver should be automatically downloaded and installed. (Really, it works!)

On Windows XP, the Add New Hardware wizard will open:
* When asked '''Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software?''' select '''No, not this time'''. Click next.
* Select '''Install from a list or specified location (Advanced)''' and click next.
* Make sure that '''Search for the best driver in these locations''' is checked; uncheck '''Search removable media'''; check '''Include this location in the search''' and browse to the '''drivers/FTDI USB Drivers''' directory of the Arduino distribution. (The latest version of the drivers can be found on the [[http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm | FTDI website]].) Click next.
* The wizard will search for the driver and then tell you that a "USB Serial Converter" was found. Click finish.
* The new hardware wizard will appear again. Go through the same steps and select the same options and location to search. This time, a "USB Serial Port" will be found.

You can check that the drivers have been installed by opening the Windows Device Mananger (in the Hardware tab of System control panel). Look for a "USB Serial Port" in the Ports section; that's the Arduino board.

If you're using a serial board, power the board with an external power supply (6 to 25 volts DC, with the core of the connector positive). Connect the board to a serial port on your computer.

On the USB boards, the power source is selected by the jumper between the USB and power plugs. To power the board from the USB port (good for controlling low power devices like LEDs), place the jumper on the two pins closest to the USB plug. To power the board from an external power supply (needed for motors and other high current devices), place the jumper on the two pins closest to the power plug. Either way, connect the board to a USB port on your computer.

The power LED should go on.

Select the serial device of the Arduino board from the Tools | Serial Port menu. On Windows, this should be @@COM1@@ or @@COM2@@ for a serial Arduino board, or @@COM3@@, @@COM4@@, or @@COM5@@ for a USB board.

Push the reset button on the board then click the ''Upload'' button in the IDE. Wait a few seconds. If successful, the message "Done uploading." will appear in the status bar.

If the Arduino board doesn't show up in the Tools | Serial Port menu, or you get an error while uploading, please see the [[Troubleshooting | troubleshooting suggestions]].

A few seconds after the upload finishes, you should see the amber (yellow) LED on the board start to blink.

These are the steps you need to follow in order to be up and running:

# Get an Arduino board
# Download the Arduino environment
# Install the USB drivers
# Connect the board
# Upload a program

!!!1 | Get an Arduino board
The Arduino i/o board is a simple circuit featuring the ATmega8 processor from Atmel. The board is composed of a printed circuit board (PCB) and electronic parts.

There are a few ways to get an Arduino board:

* '''buy a ready made board'''. See how you can [[Main/Buy| buy]] a board or just the PCB.
** [[http://pcb-europe.net/catalog/index.php?cPath=29 | European distributor]]
** [[http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=666 | US distributor]]
* '''build your own board'''. If you want you can build your own PCB just by downloading the CAD files from the [[Main/Hardware]] page. Extract the .brd file and send it to a PCB manufacturer. Be aware that manufacturing a single pcb will be very expensive. It's better to get together with other people and make 20 or 30 at a time. Since you get the full CAD files you can make your own customised version of Arduino. if you make modifications or fix bugs please send us your changes!
** '''purchase parts'''. purchase the parts from any electronics store. The Serial version in particular has been designed to use the most basic parts that can be found anywhere in the world. The USB version on the other hand requires some advanced soldering skills because of the FTDI chip that is an smd part. Here is a [[PartsSerial | list]] of parts for the serial board.
** '''assemble the board'''. We put together a step by step [[Main/BuildSerial | guide]] on how to build an arduino board. ''Newbies: never soldered before? afraid of trashing thousands of boards before getting one properly soldered? fear not :) learn to master the art of [[http://www.potemkin.org/cms/Pid/Soldering | soldering]].''
** '''program the bootloader'''. In order for the development environment to be able to program the chip, this has to be programmed with a piece of code called ''bootloader''. See the [[Main/bootloader]] page on how to program it on your chip.

!!!2 | Download the Arduino environment
To program the Arduino board you need the Arduino environment.

'''Download Arduino''':
From the [[Main/Software | software page]].

For more information, see the [[Environment | guide to the Arduino environment]].

!!!3 | Install the USB drivers
If you are using a USB Arduino, you will need to install the drivers for the FTDI chip on the board. These can be found in the @@drivers@@ directory of the Arduino distribution.

On Windows, you will need to unzip @@FTDI USB Drivers.zip@@. Then, when you plug in the Arduino board, point the Windows ''Add Hardware'' wizard to the @@FTDI USB Drivers@@ directory.

Attach:windows-extract-drivers.png

The latest version of the drivers can be found on the [[http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm | FTDI website]].

!!!4 | Connect the board

If you're using a serial board, power the board with an external power supply (6 to 25 volts DC, with the core of the connector positive). Connect the board to a serial port on your computer.

On the USB boards, the power source is selected by the jumper between the USB and power plugs. To power the board from the USB port (good for controlling low power devices like LEDs), place the jumper on the two pins closest to the USB plug. To power the board from an external power supply (needed for motors and other high current devices), place the jumper on the two pins closest to the power plug. Either way, connect the board to a USB port on your computer.

The power LED should go on.

Attach:PluggedIn.jpg

On Windows, the Add New Hardware wizard will open. Tell it not to connect to Windows update and click next.

Attach:wizard1-step1.png

Then select "Install from a list or specified location (Advanced)" and click next.

Attach:wizard1-step2.png

Make sure that "Search for the best driver in these locations is checked"; uncheck "Search removable media"; check "Include this location in the search" and browse to the location you unzipped the USB drivers to in the previous step. Click next.

Attach:wizard1-step3.png

The wizard will search for the driver and then tell you that a "USB Serial Converter" was found. Click finish.

Attach:wizard1-step4.png

The new hardware wizard will appear again. Go through the same steps. This time, a "USB Serial Port" will be found.

!!!5 | Upload a program

Open the LED blink example sketch: File > Sketchbook > Examples > led_blink.

Attach:LedBlinkExample.png

Here's what the code for the LED blink example looks like.

Attach:ArduinoEnvironment.png

Select the serial device of the Arduino board from the Tools | Serial Port menu. On Windows, this should be @@COM1@@ or @@COM2@@ for a serial Arduino board, or @@COM3@@, @@COM4@@, or @@COM5@@ for a USB board.

Attach:SerialPortSelection.png

Push the reset button on the board then click the ''Upload'' button in the IDE. Wait a few seconds. If successful, the message "Done uploading." will appear in the status bar.

If the Arduino board doesn't show up in the Tools | Serial Port menu, or you get an error while uploading, please see the [[Troubleshooting | troubleshooting suggestions]].

A few seconds after the upload finishes, you should see the amber (yellow) LED on the board start to blink.
