"You need to copy from the zip file the code sub directory to the place Arduino keeps sketches which on Windows 7 is - Documents - My Documents - Arduino
You also need to copy from the zip file the LIBRARIES to the libraries folder of Arduino, in Windows 7 that is C:\Arduino-1.0.1\Libraries
That information is very standard Arduino stuff covered in Arduino tutorials.but it may not be obvious that you need to do that first."
Arduino isn't a program that's installed on you computer regardless of version of windows...you just run the executable. So where would you copy the libraries etc too?
I'm sure this is the wall I'm hitting. When I try to compile, it errors out because it can't find the libraries.
Should I just copy all the files in the MP library into the librarie folder in the arduino root folder?
It took me a while to figure this step out.
Look inside the Arduino program folder and you will see a folder inside there called LIBRARIES.
Now look inside the MPNG .zip you downloaded, and you should see a LIBRARIES folder. You need to replace the Arduino LIBRARIES folder with the one from MPNG. Then you can compile & upload the MPNG code.
Do not forget to edit config.h to suit your board before you upload.
If you want to switch back to MultiWii, you need to restore the stock arduino libraries folder.
