Windows Driver Problem

I'm trying to upload to Blinkytape on my Windows 7 laptop, but windows says it can't find the BlinkyTape driver. In Arduino 1.05, I am selecting Arduino as the board.

  • The instructions on the site specifically say that you need to install PatternPaint first, since it contains the drivers. Did you do that yet?

  • No I didn't. Since it said it said to use the Leonardo as the board type, I assumed if my sketch would upload to the Leonardo, it would work with Blinkytape. Also on my Mac I didn't need anything special. Thanks for pointing that out.
  • Sorry for the confusion, and hope the drivers work for you. Max and Linux systems don't need a driver for serial USB devices, but for whatever reason, Windows does.
