Re: Updating to 101a just refuses to work per instructions

 Here is what the message is that I see every time I click on the program button:

T1.01a.hex: 31,940 / 32,768 Bytes (97.47%)

avrdude.exe done.  Thank you.

I'm using an Arduino UNO new out of the package, the interface cable is exactly like described in the updating article and everything is set per the instructions in both the UNO and the AVRDUDESS program.  I've even tried another new UNO with the same results.  I was able to save the hex file to a folder on my computer and told the program to find it there.
