Did you download it from here: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/25871/eng/iss-iot-win_03-14-16.7z? If so, I found it very strange that you can't find iss-iot-launcher.bat. I just downloaded it and I was able to find it. Why don't you try to download it again?
Remember that Windows 10 by default hides file extensions, you can follow this guide: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/show-hide-file-name-extensions#show-hide-file-name-extensions=windows-7 in order to show them.
I've experienced some issues where I couldn't start the IDE unless I it was installed on C:\Windows\System32. However, decompressing the files there solved the issue. Why don't you try that? Also, remember to run it with Admin rights.
Try this and let me know how it goes.
Thanks for the fast reply Peter.
I spent some time today trying to get things to work.
The good news is I re-did the download as you suggested. For some reason windows 10 would not let me put a zip file is \window\System32 folder. Probably for good reason. Anyway I downloaded it to my browser general downloads folder and then made a folder C:\Intel\iss-iot-win in which I placed every file and folder from the expanded downloads folder.
iss-io-launcher.bat was there this time!!!
I ran as Administrator the batch file. Got a popup saying wrong or no JDK. After a few tries (where I had to remove much old Java Development stuff), I did manage to get everything loaded.
Now I have to learn how to actually run the thing. It looks like I have the WiFi connection to the Edison working so if I understand things correctly it will be able to run the code form my PC directly on the Edison board – very nice!
