Bean Loader options for Windows users - General Questions - Beantalk Here's how to setup your Arduino 1.0.5 IDE to work with a LightBlue Bean on Windows. First download the Arduino 1.0.5 IDE as an installer or zip file16. I like the zip file because I can just unzip it to my C:\ and have a convenient spot for it right at the root of the drive. Next download this collection of files54 that you'll need to modify your Arduino environment with. These contain the Example files and the Bean library source code that will compile in the Arduino IDE. I have personally scrubbed through all of the examples and cleaned up the whitespace and indentation for all examples.
