How to get rid of the stupid ".hex No Such File" Error when uploading Arduino!

Step 1: Download the FTDI drivers

Skip this step if you can link an example to your chip, such as blink.

Go to http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm The FTDI card drivers website and click on Windows XP. Save this somewhere, and when you plug in your arduino, direct the Add New Hardware wizard to that folder. It should install about two to four different things.
