macOS Version

After downloading, double-click the .dmg file. In the window that opens, drag and drop the blokdots icon into the Application folder. You can now start blokdots by navigating to the Application folder and double-clicking on blokdots or searching for it using Spotlight.

Windows Version

After downloading, double-click Blokdots-Setup.exe to install blokdots.

Opening Dialog

We are still a fairly small start-up and the Windows version of blokdots is quite new, so it is very likely that when you open the application for the first time, the Windows Smart Screen appears and shows you a warning which looks like this:

Windows Smart Screen

If this dialog appears, please click “more info” to reveal the developer information. You should see now something with “blokdots” in the app field and “Olivier Brückner” in the publisher field. Now click “run anyway” to start the app.

Here you also can find a step-by-step video guide.

Port Recognition

Sometimes the Arduino board is not recognized by blokdots directly after its installation. In this case, we recommend restarting your computer after installing it.

Also when you first plug in an Arduino board, your computer takes some time to set up the device. Start blokdots after the initialization is done to guarantee the Arduino’s port is available for blokdots to use.
