Hello!

First time posting a topic.

My problem is that I got windows 10, and I need atmel studio for robotics

But I can't run it.

The image will explain everything.

 

I installed the new version of shell isolated but it didnt help.

Thank You

Code is everything, code is life :D

I'm running AS 6.2 on Windows 10, although when I installed AS 6.2 my system was running Windows 8.1.  What version of the installer did you use?  The one with .NET or without it?

I am about to install Studio 6.2 on a Windows 10 machine.  Now I am having second thoughts.  Am I better off installing it on a Windows 7 system?  Or have all the Windows 10 issues been resolved?

I have had 6_2 running on my Win10 machine for over a year.  No issues

I seem to recall a hiccup with 6.2 on Win10.  I could be wrong but I think my JTAGICE2 wouldn't work, so I ran Win7 when I needed to use the JTAGICE2.  I now have the Atmel ICE which I think works with 6.2.

 

I just had to do a fresh install of Windows 10 on this machine.  I haven't installed Studio yet.  I'd like to install 7.0, just to keep up with the Joneses, but if Atmel doesn't fix the bug soon that precludes me from using it, I may install 6.2.

Silly question but why are folks using 6.2 when 7 has been out and "stable" for a long time now?

It's buggy.  It's unusable for me.  Fixing it is on Atmel's to do list, according to meolsen.

For myself:

 

1) I don't use most of the features in 6_2, so I do not need all the 'extras' in 7.0.

2) I don't use ARM or UC32 so I do not need AS7 even though  can install just the AVR8 package

3) I am used to 6_2 and it does what I need.

 

 

4) I would rather use Studio 4.19, but it does not support the AVR I am using, or it does not support my tools.....pity.

 

JMHO.

It's not the extras I'm thinking about - it's the bug fixes. AS5/6/7 is very much "work in progress" so one might assume more and more is fixed in each release. Also you will be missing out on a much later avr-gcc by using such an old version I guess.

Well you have me there,

 

Of course with my lackluster fluency in C for me having the latest might be a curse rather than a blessing wink

 

MAybe I should read up on whats new I guess in that respect.

 

Cheerio!

Indeed.  It makes life interesting, you know.

 

A couple of days ago I downloaded Windows 10 from Microsoft and did a clean install.  It turned out to be build 1703. 

 

I saw a bug feature staring me in the face and I'm thinking it may never be fixed.  For many years, I guess at least as far back as Windows 2000, we could set the program window's background color.  With Windows 8, the program that allowed us to set the color easily was thrown out the window.  It still worked through Windows 10 build 1607.  After Windows 7 you had to set the color in the register unless you did an in-place upgrade from Windows 7 or earlier.  It still works with the latest Windows (build 1703) after sign in, but the color is lost and reverts to white after waking from sleep or switching users and returning.

 

It makes me wonder if those folks in Redmond ever use the software they sell.  I suspect they all use Macs.

 

I don't know how many of you guys set the background color.  Here's the way notepad looks on this particular Windows installation.  I call this color azure but I have no idea what that is.  It just sounds good.

I would suspect that notepad would be quite a bit down on any developers list of favorite editors, even for the MS developers.. ;-)

It's not just notepad.  It's everything.  I don't mind making notepad small for easy uploading.  I use my own editor, and it's better than your editor.  devil

 

Speaking of never using the latest version of anything, I foolishly installed Visual Studio 2017.  I had been using VS 2010.  I start it up and let it sit without loading a project.  So far, so good.  It uses 0% CPU.  Then I switch to another user and hear my fan running fast.  That lame brained VS 2017 is now using 35% CPU.  If I go back to the account where it is running, it drops to 0% again.   WTF?

Ah, Studio 17 is like getting a puppy. Stay right next to it and it will sleep most of the time - leave it and it will run around just inside the front door eagerly awaiting your return..

 

BTW, Your editors so small, you cant even see the background colour in it and by the way it's horrible.. [double- devil!!]

I read that there are issues importing projects into Studio 7 that were built using 6.2 so I have steered clear from that.
