I am trying to re-install Atmel Studio onto a Windows 10 machine but it keeps failing, stating "An error occured".

 

Initially when I was trying a full install (AVR8, AVR32, SAM), using the full off-line installer. The error message in these attempts was "An error occured, on the AVR8 toolchain". Now I am just trying a small install (SAM only), using the full off-line installer, and get a different error message "An error occured, on the SAM device support".

 

I've attached the Local/Temp/ error logs for Atmel Studio here, and a screenshot. What is my issue here, and most importantly how can I get Atmel Studio re-installed?

Using the web installer gives the same results. I've attached the results from this web installation attempt, if this helps.

 

Thoughts?

What happens when you click on the "Troubleshoot" links?

I have the same problem.  It's the primary reason that I've given up on any Atmel/Microchip-provided tools for microcontroller development and use the Arduino IDE or the stand-alone assembler program.  Microchip should give up on Studio 6/7/8 and instead concentrate on having every AVR and PIC type in their catalog be Arduino compatable.

I reviewed the Windows Troubleshoot and found no actionable next steps, it felt like just a shot in the air and I didn't look further. I should have looked into the Device Support Troubleshoot, but like Simonetta I often find your tools verbose and complicated, and decided the simple resolution was a clean sweep.

 

I then reformatted my Windows 10, clean sweep! Four hours later, surprise surprise it works!

It looks a bit like a problem I had when installing.

do a google search on "studio install fail avrfreaks" or something like that.

 

In my case it was a problem of a downloaded file that was corrupt. As the installer sees the file present it is going to use it and not first check for problems.

in the end there was an article about how to make sure that the studio download cash was cleared and that the install would continue.

I think I found the article back then on this forum were there was a link to an atmel page describing how to do it, never directly found that page back then.
