MegunoLink’s Arduino integration includes:

Both can be installed and removed with the setup tool built into MegunoLink. The Arduino library can also be installed, like any other Arduino library, from the Arduino IDE. Just search for MegunoLink.

For more information about the library and upload monitor, check out our getting started with Arduino integration guide.

We recommend installing the upload monitor and Arduino library at the same time using the setup tool.

To use the Arduino integration setup tool:

  1. Open the Setup Arduino Integration tool from MegunoLink’s ⚙ menu,
  2. Click the Install/Remove button to install or uninstall the MegunoLink Arduino library,
  3. Check/update the path to your Arduino IDE installation, and
  4. Click the Update/install/Remove button to install or uninstall the upload monitor.

A detailed walk-through is below.

Install Arduino IDE

You’ll need the Arduino IDE installed before setting up the Arduino integration features.

Follow the link below if you don’t have it already.

Starting the Arduino Integration Setup Tool

To start the Arduino Integration setup tool:

  1. Select Setup Arduino Integration from MegunoLink’s ⚙ menu to open the integration setup tool, then
  2. Click Yes to allow the setup tool to make changes to your computer.

The tool is a separate program to manage installing and removing the Arduino integration features.

Open Arduino integration tool
Select Setup Arduino Integration in MegunoLink and click Yes on the User Account Control prompt to start the Arduino integration setup tool.

Install/Remove Arduino library

Click the Install button In the Setup Arduino Integration tool to install the MegunoLink Arduino library, or the Remove button to uninstall the library.

Install Arduino library

Click Install to setup the MegunoLink Arduino library

Updates to the library will be detected automatically and installed by the Arduino IDE.

The library is installed into your Arduino library path. For most users this is My Documents \ Arduino \ libraries. You can view/change the location of your libraries in the Arduino IDE at FilePreferencesSketchbook location.

Install/Remove Upload Monitor

Use the browse button (A) to locate your Arduino installation folder if MegunoLink has not found the correct location automatically. This is the folder containing Arduino.exe.

Click the Update/install button (B)in the Setup Arduino Integration tool to install the upload monitor. Click the Remove button to uninstall the upload monitor.

Install upload monitor

Click the Update/Install button to install the upload monitor into the Arduino installation at the path selected.

The upload monitor is a wrapper around AVRDude.exe, the program that the Arduino IDE uses to upload programs onto your device. Learn more on the upload monitor reference page.
