$ As this question is asked regularly I have made the post a sticky - JS $

Seems like Atmel eradicated AVR Studio 4 from their website entirely, but there is a torrent for AVR Studio 4.18.

Download the .torrent file here:
[EDIT: removed the download link because it actually is available at atmel.com]

Open it with your favorite torrent client to get AvrStudio4Setup.exe.

It worked for me! Please consider downloading it and seeding it for others, even if you dont need it yourself.

Haha good to know, I stocked up my archive with SP3 for AS4.18. :-) Actually my archive goes back to Studio 4.11 and also Studio 3.56 and Studio 2.02 and may dig up one more.

Maybe 4.19 will not make it into my "archive of fame". :-)

Have you looked here?

Oh dear! I was looking for something like that two weeks ago or so, since I could not locate my old archive copy of 4.18.

Thank you, Larry!

Yeah, I guess I know some things. :wink:

Why they make you register for them is beyond me. :?

Particularly when one has registered a dozen times before and cannot simply log in to download. :roll:

I think the last time I registered it was as the "company witchdoctor". Those guys/gals in marketing need some comedy in their days.

There is no Studio 4 (or 5 or 6) or winavr for Linux. But they have the stand alone Atmel AVR Toolchain (only compiler and some tools, no IDE) for both Windows and Linux.

No such thing, Windows only.

If you want an IDE to wrap around a Linux based avr-gcc toolchain look at any of Code::Blocks, Netbeans, Eclipse. (possibly in that order).

For a Linux based avr-gcc toolchain itself, assuming you use a Linux distro that can handle .deb's then consider starting here: www.wrightflyer.co.uk/avr-gcc/ but also see the very last item on that page.

i think i asked silly question but you are answered calmly, thank you all.
So, i have to download following stuffs for linux: avr-gcc toolchain, makefile, binutils, avr-libc functions and these could be latest version.

Suggest you follow my previous advice:

http://www.wrightflyer.co.uk/avr...

If you do not use .deb's then get the .tar.gz from Atmel.

If you don't use .deb's then simply unpack the .deb with standard tools:

ar p avr-gcc-*.deb data.tar.gz | tar xzC /

It's not mandated but it's fairly common to put avr-gcc in /usr/local/avr with a PATH to the binaries in /usr/local/avr/bin

Looking at Atmel's .tar.gz's I see a typical path is:

avr8-gnu-toolchain-linux_x86_64/libexec/gcc/avr/4.6.2/install-tools/mkheaders

I think I'd just untar that in ~ and the "cp -a" everything beneath avr8-gnu-toolchain-linux_x86_64/ to /usr/local/avr

clawson@ws-czc1138h0b:/windows$ tar xvzf avr8-gnu-toolchain-3.4.0.663-linux.any.x86_64.tar.gz
clawson@ws-czc1138h0b:/windows$ cd avr8-gnu-toolchain-linux_x86_64/
clawson@ws-czc1138h0b:/windows$ sudo mkdir /usr/local/avr
[sudo] password for clawson:
clawson@ws-czc1138h0b:/windows$ sudo cp -a . /usr/local/avr
clawson@ws-czc1138h0b:/windows$ export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/avr/bin
clawson@ws-czc1138h0b:/windows$ avr-gcc -v

Everything after that line is output of the -v command. I was just using that to show that avr-gcc was installed and runnable. The key thing was the "export" that extended PATH so that the avr-gcc executables could be found in /usr/local/avr/bin

You edit your source files in the editor of your choice.

You create a makefile, and use GNU Make to run the different tools in the tool chain to get the final app built.

Or.. I guess you could look around for IDEs that run on GNU/Linux and that are customizable to run the avr-gcc tool chain, or that even has plugins available for AVR development. Things to google: "Eclipse", "NetBeans", "CodeBlocks", of-course in combination with "AVR".

I was able to get AVRStudio 4.18 working on Windows 8.1 and Propox JTAG Cable II (Jtag ICE not mkII, (others say it does work with JtagICE MKII also) :

1) I used the windows 7 driver from propox: http://www.propox.com/products/t...

2) I had to change windows 8.1 start up to not require signed drivers, otherwise it gives the not able to install driver message "Hash for the file is not present" : http://dangerismymiddlename.com/...

Hope this saves someone some time.

There is also this information,: http://www.avrfreaks.net/index.p... .....but I don't think I had to do this...I started the process but, I believe I aborted it for some reason .
