That's an annoying thing I find with many (most?) IDEs: once you've fiddled with Project settings, there is no 'undo' or 'exit without saving'
You just have to keep backup copies of the Project files.
Using MSVS (not Atmel Studio - though it's the same) I do find it puzzling that many project property changes you make are written direct to the vcxproj file and yet sometime you File-Exit the IDE and it shows a tree saying you have unsaved changes to SLN->VCXPROJ->... etc. do you want to save it all now? It's never clear why some things are instantly committed to disk and some are only at a File-Save All or whatever ?!?
Hold it right there everyone - So all this while, I could not see what the errors or warnings were. Well the culprit was in the IDE settings - Tools ---> Options ----> Projects ----> Build and Run -----> MSBuild project build output verbosity ----> was set to MINIMAL -----> Changed it to Diagnostic ----> Thanks to the forum member from ATMEL.
This enabled me to see what the errors/warnings were----most of them were to update ISR names as mentioned in the previous posts. I updated them and the project build was successful.
The confusion with makefile happened because I initially started with Win AVR -- In the MFile, there was a line of code to update the programmer used. As of now, I don't have a programmer yet. I would like to know if this is required through AS7. I couldn't load the project that you had sent me (because, I tried to rename it) which actually showed the makefile as a separate window on AS7. So, I assumed that I had done something wrong when I built the project that I had created. I still have the zip you had sent me, strange that the project still doesn't open/cannot be located despite having it on the file. I could locate the makefile, hex files, etc., in the debug folder of the project.
I am new to this platform and I want to learn things through this forum. I may have asked a stupid question all together but I have no clue as to how the settings where set to minimal. P.S. I did not mess up the installation.
Believe when I tell you that my struggle on here is real.
Someone clearly messed up the verbosity setting ;-)
I did not touch it.
