After upgrading to 1645, do you need to go into the Device Pack Manager and check all the ones you want to install/upgrade?  I opened a project and it prompted to update.  I did find where you could set the project to use the latest version.

 

I am not sure whether you found it but for clarification. Right click on Project and go to Properties.

I don't use any device packs.  I don't use ASF.  Basically all I need is the toolchain for AVR8.  I didn't have this problem with an earlier version of Studio 7.

 

Well maybe I do use device packs.  I have to specify a device but I was thinking that was for the debugger.  

All part support is contained in the part packs (device packs). Header files, linker scripts, assembly include files, ... Not everybody is happy for this disconnect from the toolchain, but for us it gives the advantage of being able to distribute new part support and fix bugs without having to release a new toolchain. All our packs is available at http://packs.download.atmel.com/

Thanks, that fixed the problem.

 

Something strange happened to my computer shortly thereafter.  Some programs froze up and others worked okay.  Studio worked okay.  The start button didn't do anything.  Ctrl-alt-del worked but nothing on its menu did.  Trying to sign out or restart or shutdown was futile.  All that happened was a blank screen with those white balls chasing each other around a circle.  I had to pull the plug.  Well actually pressing and holding the power button.

 

This situation is very unusual.  I don't know if Studio did it, but deleting stuff in appdata is rather unusual also.

 

Since re-booting, everything seems to be normal.

Maybe not so normal.  Now my HyperTerminal doesn't work.  It can't read the session file.  It gives a pathlist in AppData.  It shows "Accessories" in the pathlist.  But I have "Windows Accessories" instead.  Maybe that folder name change in the error message is irrelevant because HyperTerminal hasn't changed since XP.

Well that wasn't so bad.  I just had to create a new port.

Really? I already said that in #47, but apparently step by step recipes are needed. Well, I'll keep that in mind for the future...

If I had installed Studio as an admin, would I have avoided this?

 

I don't want to go through this on my primary computer.

I found it, but everytime I change a project to "use the latest version", AS7 crashes.  At least when I reopen it, the project does have the change...

Funny UI issues after upgrades are almost always due to the caches in %LOCALAPPDATA%/AtmelStudio/7.0

 

I wish the studio installer just cleared them. (Because VS2015 isn't smart enough to regenerate them)

Tried to update 7.0.594 to 7.0.1645, update failed. Then I removed 7.0.594 to install from scratch. The drivers install, but then "Atmel Development Environment" fails to install according to the installation log. Not too sure where in installation log to look for the problem. Any ideas?

Many Thanks

Thanks for getting back to me. I attached the log. It seems that all goes well until:

 

MSI (s) (38:6C) [13:24:20:113]: Hello, I'm your 32bit

Impersonated custom action server.
Action start 13:24:19: ExtractContent.
SFXCA: Failed to create new CA process via RUNDLL32. Error code: 2 

 

Then a list of Property (S) that refer to locations that did not exist when the installation started??

 

I attached the log. Many thanks.
