-**1)** Download ​the Arduino 1.5.x BETA IDE from: http://​arduino.cc/​en/​Main/​Software ​(or on Linux use a package manager to do so)+====== Installing ​the DigiX Software ​======
  
-**2)** Install the IDE, (on windows saying yes to install the drivers), and open for the first time - you can use the Arduino Due (Native Port) board option and start using your DigiX right away, though you won't have all the features (WiFi, EEPROM, extra pins, etc). +=====Software:​=====
  
-If you decide to use this approach read our "​[[digix:​tutorials:​basics|The Basics of Using the DigiX]]" page for more on the slight differences between a DigiX and Arduino ​Due.http://​digistump.com/​wiki/​digix/​tutorials/​software+The DigiX uses the Arduino ​IDE 1.6.5+ ​ (Arduino 1.6.5r2 - NOT 1.6.6 or 1.6.7 strongly recommended)
  
-**3)** For full support of all features and easier use, download the following zip file: https://​sourceforge.net/​projects/​digistump/​files/​DigiXAddons-v07.zip/​download **(Updated with pseudo compatibility with Ethernet api for DigiFi, lots of new examples, Xively, ThningSpeak,​ Plot.ly, NTP, new libraries, working NRF library, and more!)** 
  
-**4)** Unzip and copy the DigiXAddOns/​Hardware folder to your (My) Documents/​Arduino folder for Mac and Windows (My Documents on windows) and your /​home/​[username]/​Sketchbook folder on Linux.  ​+====== Installation Instructions:​ ======
  
-**4.1)** If you are using windows run the Install ​Driver - 32-bit ​or 64-bit ​.bat file found in the DigiX Driver folder in the files you just extracted(32 bit for 32 bit windows, 64 for 64 bit windows)+  ​ **First download the appropriate Arduino package at the Arduino.cc website: https://​www.arduino.cc/​en/​Main/​Software** 
 +  *  ​If using Arduino 1.6.6 or higher and windows ​- download, unzip, and run "​Install Drivers"​ from here: https://​github.com/​digistump/​DigistumpArduino/​releases/​download/​1.6.7/​Digistump.Drivers.zip 
 +  *  **Install or Unzip the Arduino application.** 
 +  *  **Run the Arduino application.** 
 +  *  **In the Arduino application go to the "​File"​ menu and select "​Preferences"​** 
 +{{ :​digispark:​tutorials:​preferences.gif?nolink |}} 
 +  *  **In the box labeled "​Additional Boards Manager URLs" enter:** <​code>​http://​digistump.com/​package_digistump_index.json</​code>​ 
 +**and click OK**
  
-**5)** Launch ​the Arduino IDE and select ​the DigiX from the Tools->​Boards menu - now you should see new libraries in the Examples menu as well.+Note: If you already have additional URLs entered in that box, then click the button on the right of the box and enter this URL on a new line. 
 +{{ :​digispark:​tutorials:​entry.jpg?nolink |}}
  
-**6)** Plug it in and away you go! It works like other Arduino boards, serial monitor works as well. Check out the examples as well as the other tutorials here and the "Due Only Libraries"​ here: http://​arduino.cc/​en/​Reference/​Libraries for some of the cool features.+  ​ **Go to the "​Tools"​ menu and then the "​Board"​ submenu - select "​Boards Manager"​ and then from the type drop down select "​Contributed":​**  
 +  * **Select the "​Digistump SAM Boards"​ package and click the "​Install"​ button.** 
 +{{ :​digix:​tutorials:​digix_install.gif?​nolink |}} 
 + 
 +    *  **You'​ll see the download progress on the bottom bar of the "​Boards Manager"​ window, when complete it will show "​Installed"​ next to that item on the list.**  
 +    *  **WINDOWS USERS: When complete the install with pop up a Driver Install Wizard window, please click "​Next"​ on this Window to install the drivers for Digistump Boards** (If you already have them installed, this installer will update them and install any that are missing) 
 +    * **With the install complete, close the "​Boards Manager"​ window and select the "​Digistump DigiX" from the Tools->​Boards menu.**  
 +{{ :​digix:​tutorials:​pickdigix.gif?​nolink |}} 
 + 
 +  *  **The install is now complete!** (Linux users see note below)
