Hi, iam devlooper of c/c++ systems, and in first i use actual Visualstudio, in past times the new Atmelstudio7 is not more working

after installing it under W10, the devloopment of AVR stand still, and we have serch 1 year about solutions with none succseeds

 

I think is a war between MS and AS so no one can use both Programms on one system, but that is essential to continue on windows with

us software devlooping and debugging.  i am very down here, and i will lost customers by do nothing any more with the AVR Stuff.

 

Give it an alternative to compile and debug AVR systems without broken atmelstudio7 or an deep trick there let start the software .

Atmelstudio7 means immedately after klick "missing components ..."

If you install VS after AS, then sometimes you need to do a repair of Atmel Studio (if the VS installation messes with ourf registrations..)

Hi Meo,

 

the VS is always install first, it has many depends to the main project, after that we install AS. This comes up while install with a message box and means : that some things are wrong, but installation will be continue.

After next 20 Minutes the process ist complete. An Click on AtmelBugIcon pops up a box immedately and means some parts are wrong or missing. End of Session.

 

We have about 1 year to resolve the problem, have use all fixes from internet, re install clean install repair urinstall all registers we have taken.

 

The AS has all the years do problems but 2017 we can't hande it any more. Now we serch for alternates. we are not more able to handle atmel processors since new VS and W10.

 

This situation is more and more system relevant, we can't support us products with the old HEX files.

 

We need an alternate, this AS has lost my thrust, it's not repeatable and not installable on new systems, an lucky men u must they to have fun with that.

 

Give it an download for the main includes and libs / compiler and assembler ?  We are up to compile via scripts.

All my projects use the deep atmelstudio depends include/libs.. , we are hopeless.. and will be change to AnalogDevices. But  Not much better there :(

 

thx for answer

I dunno, I have AS4.19' AS6_2, and AS7 all running on a single Win10 Pro/64 machine without any issues worth mentioning...

Typically when complaints like this come in there is usually something else causing the hiccup. Are you using VS for anything else other than AS7?

A brute force method is a VM :

http://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/visual-studio-2015-update-1-incapacitates-atmel-studio-7#comment-1955576

IIRC, Atmel Studio 7 in VirtualBox with a USB interface is functional.

Atmel Studio 7 on VMware may exist (I have not searched for that)

A different VM tack is via Vagrant where Visual Studio is on VirtualBox, Hyper-V, VMware, and Parallels (i.e. Atmel Studio on Windows 10, Visual Studio via VM)

https://app.vagrantup.com/boxes/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&sort=downloads&provider=&q=Visual+Studio

For a trial, install Atmel Studio 7.0.1417 onto Windows 10 then operate Visual Studio 2017 via a VM that Microsoft provides :

https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/virtual-machines

 

A possible alternative to a VM is Application Virtualization (App-V) on Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows Server 2016.

A proposed solution is a virtual registry but that means forking Atmel Studio (Windows 10, Windows 10 S)

VisualGDB has tutorials on AVR and SAM for Microsoft Visual Studio.

AVR would be lacking there due to an interface via AVaRICE because :

  • reduced set of AVR
  • reduced functionality versus Atmel Studio

Would need to build AVaRICE from its repository to enable the Atmel-ICE interface.

I know this is not an ideal solution BUT........

 

Computers are pretty cheap for the most part.  Why not either buy a new one, or re-purpose one you have lying around dedicated for Studio?  Use a KVM to switch between the two.  I do this for an older system I still use.  It's really rather painless.

 

Just an option.

Hello,

  I looked at your website and I assume that your products do not use the AVR as the main embedded-systems CPU processor.   Perhaps you are using Atmel's 32-bit processors.

 

If you wish to continue AVR development and can't get Atmel Studio 7 to work with Windows 10, then I suggest using Arduino UNO for small applications and Arduino Mega2560 for larger applications.

Arduino is based on AVR GCC++,  which is open source.  Open-Source means that you can usually find someone/somewhere who understands what is going wrong with your development system.

 

I do not have any reason to believe that any program that has been written for Atmel Studio 7 can not be adapted for Arduino as long as the target CPU is either the AVR Mega328P or the Mega2560.

Arduino gives you several levels on which to write your code.   For example, to simply change an GPIO pin's (say PortD4) logic value you can use (from easy to harder and faster):

 

         pinMode(4, OUTPUT); digitalWrite(4, HIGH);   // slow and easy student/hobbyist Arduino code

 

         DDRD |= (1<<4);  PORTD |= (1<<4);  // write directly to AVR's peripheral config registers in SRAM

 

         _triggerMode = (uint8_t *) portModeRegister(digitalPinToPort(4));   // use pointer into AVR's peripheral configs

         _triggerBit = digitalPinToBitMask(4);

         _triggerOutput = portOutputRegister(digitalPinToPort(4));

 

Are you using a machine translator from German to English? Your text is very difficult to understand.

thank you ,

 

i use for my AVR8Bit internal assembler code to manage USB with 20Mhz like Atiny85, the Arduino thinks are funny, this i use too for easy projects like axisencoder.

 

I think i must have the AtmelStudio Stuff to compile my source for the Atiny85 in asm and c . Need them Libs / Headers. And i have an AtmelDebuger/Programmer

the problem is that atmelstudio wont start wehen VS2015 is installed.  The only solution is a virtual mashine, all other IDE's are not good enough for me.

 

My english is free translated by me :) Named Denglish

 

thanks all for answer and help.

 Best regards

Interesting.

 

I run VS, an AS 4.x, 6.0, and 6.2 on my Win10 system without any problems.

 

I use Atmel programmers, (mk II), and a Dragon.

Yes i have save the install binary.exe , and only so u can ensure  that your projects works in the future too. It's impossible too thrust newer coming versions, an repeatable devloopment  is need for own customers.

It sounds to me you're a professional business (rather than a hobbyist or student). If so then you might escalate this by talking to an Atmel/Microchip sales representative or "field engineer".

side question, do you do a full installation? or only the smaller limited one? might be that you indeed are missing somethings that are present in the full installation, but in the smaller studio only package are presumed to be installed already.

On my linux box 10 year old or older software just keeps on working.

Your old fladbed scanner does not work anymore with your fancy new os?

Gimme that. It will work here :)

 

On the other hand. Atmel (microsoft) studio won't work on my linux box (Shame on them ! ).

I tend to still use good old make files.

Avr projects are simple enough to handle via make.

make lets me use the IDE I just happen to fancy at that moment.

I can switch easily. Used Code::Blocks for some time. Lately I'm using Qt.

 

In the future I might swap make for SCONS.

 

Atmel not releasing their debug protocols was one of the reasons for me to not use Xmega's.

Switched to ARM Cortex 3 instead.

Guess what: Debugging works (very breef test) with a USD 2 dongle from China.
