Let's Make Robots!

Help with program editor

Ok so I'm making my first robot. I wanted the cheapest one out there so I'm trying a similar project to Fritsl's Little 8 project.

Anyways, now all my parts have come in, and I'm almost done building it but I wanted to try the program editor to see if it worked all right, so i hooked up my motor board to some power, to some motors and hooked it up to my pc. See the thing has a switch thing that you can change from "prog" to "run" so the board has a run mode and a program mode (I'm sure people who've used it know what I'm talking about)
