Hey guys, I'm relatively new to programming micros, and am currently having a lot of trouble setting up a working environment to test projects on my UC3-L0 Xplained Programmer board.

 

Originally I wanted to code and debug on Atmel Studios on a Windows VM, but I had a lot of trouble getting it to detect my USB port even after reading through all the documentation online. Currently I am currently looking for any other alternatives that might work with the mac. The only thing I tried so far is Eclipse with the AVR plugin but it's not really working for me. I would appreciate any suggestions for getting set up on the mac, or any useful/important tips for getting started. Thanks in advance for the help!

Virtualbox seems to have usb problems, whereas Paralells seems to work flawlessly.

I was actually using Parallels when I downloaded Atmel Studio, so I think it might be an issue with VM compatibility with usb ports on my laptop in general. Would you happen to have any other suggestions? I was thinking of trying an older version of Atmel Studios but I'm not sure how effective that would be, otherwise I'd really like to find an easy to use third party software.

I use Atmel Studio in Windows 7 vm under VMware Fusion for Mac and it works flawlessly with Xplained boards (as well as Atmel ICE).

Alright I'll give that a try, thanks for the suggestion!
