I proceeded assuming that went ok. I tried to select Serial Port, but can't. I would guess that this is because the boards are not loading. checked on the file in the software. C:\Program files(x86)\SparkiDuino\hardware\arduino\boards it is dated today Feb. 18, 2014. I am at a loss as to what to do next. when I try to compile a sketch and upload it I get an error "Couldn't find a Leonardo on the selected port. Check that you have the correct port selected." need help again. thanks. oh yes, the drivers are not loading. I get the message that they were not successfully loaded.

Version c is working for me.
The only thing I've seen for people to look out for is to wait maybe 20-30 seconds after plugging in Sparki for the COM port to settle in. I've had it initially appear as COM3, get a failure on uploading a sketch, only to find that the COM port has changed to COM6. Then it stays at COM6 until the next time I disconnect/reconnect Sparki.
