What is the error that the IDE is showing? Have you tried to open the IDE as administrator?
Did you used the Flashing Process and Getting Started Guide to get your board working?
Have you had another problem while you were following those steps?
I'm having a similar problem on an Acer laptop using Adafruit Arduino 1.05 - Win 9-15-14. It appears to be an issue with the laptop because I can run the IDE fine on another computer using the exact same version of the IDE and JDK. If you have access to another computer, you might try running the Edison IDE there.
I'm not asking for support, just adding a data point to the discussion.
