Windows7 64 bit: MPIDE compiles sketches flawlessly for everything EXCEPT Arduino boards that I can tell. MPIDE seems to connect & detect an Uno perfectly, it just can't compile anything for it.
java.lang.NullPointerException at processing.app.debug.Compiler.compileLink(Compiler.java:705) at processing.app.debug.Compiler.compile(Compiler.java:229) at processing.app.Sketch.build(Sketch.java:1588) at processing.app.Sketch.build(Sketch.java:1565) at processing.app.Editor$DefaultRunHandler.run(Editor.java:1863) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:619)
Any ideas on how to get it going? Didn't copy any of the error codes, but the 64 bit build of MPIDE for Linux did everything except Arduino's too. Kinda bizarre..makes me wonder if it's me :-)

No, it's not you ;)
MPIDE is the Arduino IDE ported to the chipKIT platform. While there is still code in there for the Arduino boards it's not been maintained, and can't be guaranteed to work.
If you want to use different types of boards in one IDE you really need something aimed specifically at that, such as UECIDE.

Well, at least I'm not crazy :? Hmmph. I'll just keep going with 2 of them for now.

Why not use UECIDE? I specially designed it so I could use all my boards, and I have lots - chipKITs, Arduinos, Launchpads, etc...
And it's much more advanced than the others too ;)
