Using Studio 7, v 7.0.1417 with Windows 7 and trying to run a stim file for ATtiny1634 with the simulator.

 

I am following the steps shown at this URL except that my program is in assembly and the break point is not in a loop:

https://www.codeproject.com/Tips...

 

After the simulator has stopped at a breakpoint, I click on Debug.

 

PROBLEM:  There is no Execute Stimulifile  selection on that menu.

 

The next item on my Debug menu following Continue is Restart

 

What have I not done?  When I selected the stim file it listed it OK next to the Stim File button (with the complete directory path)

Long shot but VS2015 and hence AS7 have Beginner/Advanced menus. Is this one of those things that only appears after you set the menus to "advanced" ?

Sounds strange. Can you post a screenshot?
Here's how it looks for me:

He said Asm - could that make a difference?

It shouldn't, and as far as I can see, it doesn't. Still got the "Execute stimulifile" in an assembler project.

Nope, the Standard/Advanced mode setting makes no difference for me. (You'll find it at Tools -> Select profile)

Hmmm. Actually, the Standard/Advanced mode setting makes no difference at all. Can't see ANY differences in the menues. Maybe my crippled Standard mode is broken...

Tried the Atmel example because it uses assembly code:

Problem is still the same.

 

Made a screen capture of the Simulator Tool set-up and a screen grab of the Debug Menu and attached them.

Have you tried "Tools -> Select profile"?

Attached is a screen capture of Tools-> Select Profile that has Standard checked.

It works when Advanced is selected.  I can run the example at

http://www.atmel.com/webdoc/simu...

now.

 

The main IDE screen changed a lot, so I need to get used to working with it.

 

Many thanks for your help.

Gee how I wish I had suggested this in post #2.

Oh, wait a minute...

Or change it back to the way you liked it when in standard mode and save the changes.

Most is now back where it was, but with advanced mode.  Still working with my stimulus file (the example runs fine).

 

Have not yet found how to change the simulator to act as if it were at 8MHz (uses 1 mHZ => 1 us).

The simulator always runs as if it were 50kHz. You can't change that.
