Welcome to Lesson 2 - Basic Arduino Course

Today we are going to explain how to install Arduino Software (IDE) on Windows machines step by step. Let's get started!

STEP 1: First, download the latest version of the software here.
First of all, let's download the Arduino IDE from the official website arduino.cc, it's recommended to  get the latest version from the clicking on Download Page

You can choose between the Installer (.exe) and the Zip packages how showing in Figure 2. We suggest you use the first one that installs directly everything you need to use the Arduino Software (IDE), including the drivers. 
Note: With the Zip package you need to install the drivers manually. The Zip file is also useful if you want to create a portable installation.

STEP 2: When the download has been completed, open the installer file and proceed with the installation, allow the driver installation process when you get a warning from the operating system and accept the License Agreement, how to showing in Figure 3 below.
