I'm using AS 6.2.1563 & all is well....I compile and program without trouble.
However, it seems like I'm doing an awful lot of clicking these days. When I used studio 4 I kept the programming window open & off to the side & would simply compile, then simply click the friendly PROGRAM button
In studio 6, I click:
1)Device programming icon
2)Apply (since #1 comes up "select tool...")
5)X to close the programming window
This clicking wouldn't be too bad if I did it once, but I need to do it every time I program! It seems that whenever the programming window is open, I can no longer edit (or recompile) the program. So after making a few changes I have to repeat 1-5. I've lived with this annoyance since moving to AS6, but keep wondering if I missed out on some useful shortcut or settings during my changeover to AS6. Note I am not using or trying to use the debugger (especially with all of my isrs), just straight ISP/PDI flash programming. My programmer is an AVR ISP II (apparently now discontinued).
