Went to restart a recent project and clicked an Atmel Studio icon on my desktop (Win10)
It started OK, but the list of recent projects looked really odd - the one I was going to use was missing as were several others. So, I opened the project I wanted from the File Menu. Things seemed fine as I progressed. I was at the point of downloading to the project target board so I went to Tools>Device Programming. The only tool I could find was the simulator even though my AVR Dragon was plugged in.
The Windows Device Manager showed AVR Dragon in the Jungo directory of the device list and it said that the device was operating properly. What gives? Time to be scared?
At that point, I considered posting a query to Freaks and decided that I had better look up the Studio version number. Oooops, 6 dot something or other!
I closed the IDE and carefully opened AS7, also on the desktop (clearly, a big error), and everything ran OK. Dragon was listed as an available tool, as it has been in the past.
LESSON: Don't have icons for two versions of Atmel Studio sitting close to each other on the desktop! Even better, get rid of the AS6 icon, period.
