Just downloaded and installed the official version. The same problems encountered with RC3 occured. See
http://www.avrfreaks.net/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=85782

After taking some 20 minutes with the HDD led fullly on (meanwhile JAVA updated, is this part of the install??) and unable to cancel the install (cancel button greyed out) I killed the install from the task manager.

Reinstalling again brought up the same error 1706 screen but this time the installation completed after installing a signed driver.

After several minutes downloading it all I got was a file with zero bytes instead of the expected 117 MB!

The second time it downloaded OK, and installed without any problems. I tried assembling and compiling a couple of programs and everything still works. I'm using WinXP, BTW.

I installed it (32bit Vista SP2) and it got all the way to the end with the dialog showing the [Finish] button but on clicking that it has left a windowless entry on my taskbar. About the only entry on its system menu is an "About..." and when I click that it tells me it is "Installshield V 15.0". I guess I'll have to use Task Manager to blitz it.

BTW as I posted elsewhere, I couldn't avoid filling in the registration form to get the download but others can by going direct to this link:

Interesting in the release notes:

Quote:
The following (6) new parts have been added to AVR Studio since 4.17:

ATmega64HVE, ATtiny461A, ATtiny20, ATtiny40 (Simulator support only), ATmega169PA, ATmega649P


So Tiny20 and Tiny 40 are about to join the Tiny10?

Also

New Features
QT600 support in programming dialog in AVR Studio

What's a "QT600" then?

EDIT: just answered my own question:

I'm very glad I never bothered with Vista. :)

At the university where a friend of mine works they banned Vista from every university PC, including laptops supplied to staff.

Hmm.. just tried to install on a windows 7 64bit system. but it fails!
It takes me through the startup questions, but after choosing the install directory, the installer minimizes to the taskbar, and nothing else happens at all..

The chosen directory is never created. I have tried running it in XP mode, but no success in that either.

Anyone else tried to install on windows 7, 64bit?

Program installed successfully after 30 or more minutes because I had forgot the installer running!!!

It just pop a screen that said that the program finish installing successfully!!!!

So the only solution so far is to let it for infinite time until completion!

I got a new Dell laptop with 64-bit Win7 the other day and just installed AVR Studio 4.18 on it without any problems.

Just wondering with 4.18 and Win7/64 if it works OK out of the box with USB drivers for jtag ice 2 or had to go through some tweaking?

Don't know if it works with Win7/64, but it doesn't work with 4.18 and Win7/32.
What is the latest working version for Win7/32?
Or should I wait for a fix?

Started install on Win-XP-SP3 15 minutes ago and so far nothing, but a windowless button on the taskbar. No HD activity, no sign of life. By post here I am encouraged to wait another 15 minutes, so lets give it a go.
BTW the university network is strongly firewalled. Is it trying to use some ridiculous ports?

You shouldn't have. It doesn't take 15 minutes, even on my ancient 1 GHz Xeon. Something else is up.

I had the same problems on my Win7 x64 machine. Basically I took the following steps and avr studio 4.18 installed without a problem. Unfortunately I don't know where the key is in these steps that actually solves the problem. But if you can replicate the steps, I am confident you might get somewhere :)

1. Disable UAC
2. restart computer (you must do this)
3. disable network connection
4. close all programs (including antivirus)
5. Run avr studio 4.18 setup
6. You can install SP2 update at this point
7. Turn UAC back on
8. Reboot machine
(remember to re-enable network connection)

My gut feeling tells me UAC has something to do with it but since people are having the same problem on XP (which doesn't have UAC) tells me something else may be the cause.

HTH.

I'm having the same install problems on 2 different 32-bit windows XP systems. I'm new to AVR parts and trying to get set up, but if I can't get the tools installed I'll have to find a different solution.

Has anyone figured out a cause or a workaround for this?

Silly question but you are logged in as Admin or with Admin privileges?

I'm having the problem where the installer minimizes to taskbar and never makes any progress. Has anyone yet found a workaround? The UAC/network adaptor settings didn't seem to help.

**Update**
Found a suggestion to try in safemode. Installed perfectly fine on Windows 7 64-bit.

I had same issue with avrstudio 4.18 installer minimizing to taskbar, no progress bar.

Unplugging Belkin USB dongle fixed the problem.

System Win XP SP3.

I was having the same installation problem, and Dave's method fixed it - thanks! I didn't bother stopping the antivirus software, but did the UAC and network stuff. I've got 4.18SP3 all installed fine now.

none of the suggested methods worked for me!

Solution: At first install avr studio 4.15.623 and then update it to version 4.18 by running avr studio 4.18. it works

Finally got around to installing v4 on windows 7 64bit. I've found that you have to actually log in as Aministrator and not just 'run as admin..'.

Chances are that the admin account is disabled. To enable the admin account just:

1. Right click on my computer and click 'Manage',
2. Go to 'Local Users and Groups'\Users then properties for Administrator,
3. Un-check 'account is disabled'.

Then you can 'Switch Users' and log in as Administrator. For a default install the admin account wont have a password. If it does you can go back and right click on Administrator and 'Set Password...'.

Install AVR Studio (and SPs) then logout. You can then go back into users and disable the Admin account.

Hope this helps.

Installed on Win7 Professional x64. It did the thing where it appeared to do nothing upon clicking the Install button.

After it sat there for 5-10 minutes I installed the avr-toolchain and was going to restart my computer. I began manually shutting down programs and after closing a few the AVRStudio4 window popped back up and started installing normally.

Hope this helps someone.

Just have been trying to install the 4th version in Windows 7 x64.

A couple of unsuccessful attempts would actually get me to nothing, if I wouldn't Ctrl+Alt+Del and didn't delete a process from called rundll.

It was kind of strange for me that every time the installer window closes - the explorer window comes back to the front of me.

So start the installer while it hangs up, and then kill the process rundll32 (or something like that), the window will pop up and continue installation.

I confirm david.kiryazi's recipe, on win7-64 home premium, installing avr studio 4.19. Both the UAC tweak and the reboot are needed. Then installation completes in about two minutes, instead of the windowless taskbar icon.

Something is strange here. Is everyone that has problems using Win7 Home Premium? I haven't tried installing Studio on Home Premium, only Professional. I've used Home Premium for other purposes though and haven't seen any differences between it and Professional.

You should never have to disable UAC or log on as "Administrator", or run in Safe Mode. It's possible there is something in Premium that conflicts with Studio, but I'd rather believe it's something else. Maybe your anti-virus is screwing things up.

One screwy thing that confused me with 4.19 or maybe 4.18 is you get another install shield window to install the half-assed Jungo driver. That window aligns itself exactly with the Studio install window. If you are unlucky, it gets behind the Studio window and you don't know it's there. So you never click NEXT, and things grind to a halt.

If you have trouble installing sommething, try right clicking on the setup program and click "Run as administrator". I don't have to do that though to install Studio unless I'm installing from a non-admin account, so I doubt if it will help here.

The installer I've succesfully used since 2010 isn't working anymore either.
I suspect the SP1 of Windows 7 is the problem.

update:
Safe mode works on Win 7 SP1 x86 and x64

I'm on win7 64 bit professional.
Dave's method works for me too. Restart is essential.

Thanks a lot.
