Re: BBB rev C with Windows Vista, latest IDE: hangs

following up: it turns out I did have an intermittent solder joint problem. Someone with better eyesight than mine spotted it (I guess I should have examined it with my magnifying glass); I re-soldered two dry connections, and now it works.

Does anyone reading this happen to know if the Arduino IDE can be used with Windows Vista &/or the BBB rev C? I have a BBB I bought a long time ago, it's rev C.
