    Arduino "Tools/Port" does not allow selection of Edison COM port Windows 8.1

    newbee

      The Arduino tool does not allow me to select the COM port for the Edison. I tried plugging and unplugging the USB connector before and after launching the Arduino software but I can never get it to accept a port input (or show options). The Device Manager shows the COM ports OK.

       

      I noticed that the automatic installer created and put the arduino package in a C:\Intel directory instead of Program Files. Is this a problem? Should I  move it? Is this related?  THanks
