I have connected my Edison Arduino Board to my computer (Windows 7) via COM4 and used PuTTY to login. I then exit'ed and shut PuTTY down, started the Arduino IDE, verified that the board and port were correct and opened the Blink example sketch. When I select the "right Arrow", this is the log:
------ log begins -----
starting download script
MS-DOS style path detected: C:\Intel\arduino-1.5.3-Intel.1.0.4/hardware/arduino/edison/tools/izmir/clupload_win.sh
Preferred POSIX equivalent is: /cygdrive/c/Intel/arduino-1.5.3-Intel.1.0.4/hardware/arduino/edison/tools/izmir/clupload_win.sh
CYGWIN environment variable option "nodosfilewarning" turns off this warning.
Consult the user's guide for more details about POSIX paths:

Sending Command String to move to download if not already in download mode
#COM ports are not always setup to be addressed via COM for redirect.
#/dev/ttySx are present. Howwever, COMy -> /dev/ttySx where x = y - 1
echo "COM PORT" $com_port_id
echo "Converted COM Port" $com_port_arg "to tty port" $tty_port_id
echo "Sending Command String to move to download if not already in download mode"
echo "~sketch download" > $tty_port_id
#Move the existing sketch on target.
echo "Deleting existing sketch on target"
$fixed_path/lsz.exe --escape -c "mv -f /sketch/sketch.elf /sketch/sketch.elf.old" <> $tty_port_id 1>&0
Deleting existing sketch on target
and it stops there (10 min later it's still there and no blinking).
The behavior is identical with and without the Base Shield.
I would appreciate any suggestions for getting past this point.
