I am trying to upload a .hex file to my attiny85v-10pu and using my arduino as a isp (i think thats the right term) but it come up with this error.

ser_open(): can't open device "lpt1": The system cannot find the file specified

I put in the command avrdude -c arduino -p attiny85 -u flash:w:tvbgone.hex

I am using cmd on Windows 10 and am following a tutorial on instructables and am using an attiny85v-10pu with an arduino as a programmer.

please help before my brain explodes :)

    You are using an erroneous command line which specifies the wrong programmer type and/or port to avrdude. Edit your question to include the actual avrdude command line or IDE configuration you used. – Chris Stratton Nov 18 '15 at 21:03
  • Ok I've changed the title it it ok now? – tomrubberduck Nov 19 '15 at 6:44
  • also include more info about your system, it looks as though you're on a windows box, that would be nice to confirm. You can use the output from arduino IDE to get the correct serial port ID – Madivad Nov 19 '15 at 9:01
  • No, it is not ok. You were asked to provide the command line or configuration, and you have not. – Chris Stratton Nov 19 '15 at 14:00
  • Is it ok now, just tell me what I need to do so you can help me and I will do it. – tomrubberduck Nov 19 '15 at 17:07
