I am trying to update the installed AS7 on my machine with the NEW Mchip gallery, and latest ASF extension.  I went in to extension manager and after registering I downloaded both gallery and ASF which are .VSIX extensions.  

 

How do I install these into AS7?  Since they are not EXE files double clicking gives me an error.

 

Studio itself says there are no updates needed for my install, but I know that ASF needs to update and the gallery pushes me to the new Mchip gallery download with every click.

 

Any ideas?

When I do the update from Tools -> Extensions and Updates, the VSIX Installer automatically launches and performs the install/update.  How are you getting to the point where you downloaded the VSIX file?

I do not get the UPDATE button.  I get DOWNLOAD button

EDIT:

I downloaded the gallery update and the ASF update, but double clicking either of them gives me the following:

Just open the vsix file with the correct version of vsixinstaller.exe. The one that supports Atmel Studio is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\VSIXInstaller.exe

Why can't studio update this directly if I may ask?

Long story or short story?

 

The shortest story is that the server that studio used to connect to is no more. It has seized to exist. It is an ex-server. 

 

Next update of Studio will of course ship with the new extension manager, but in the interrim the short solution is to install the extension manager manually. After that it should be able to update as usual (and note, it's quite a lot better than the previous extension manager than we had :) )

Would it not have made more sense to have kept the old server live until the update ... ?

Is this something I need to run from a command prompt?  Double clicking gives me an errorbox with instructions on pointing to the path of the file and such.

If we could have kept it, of course.. this was the short version of the story.

Either change your file association, right-click on the file and open with, drag the file onto the exe, or rundt from the command prompt.

Morten,

I installed the two updates, and there is a 'feature' that I think needs to be addressed.  After the updates I opened my project in this thread:

 

https://www.avrfreaks.net/forum/x...

 

And ASF popped up telling me of changes that it made to the project - without asking permission to make said changes.  It did report what these changes were and provided radio buttons to where the changes were made.  For my project two of the changes did not have an impact the third did and it is associated to a bug I think START has.

 

The changes for me were mundane, but should someone working on a very large project ASF making changes without asking first could be catastrophic.

Again, you should report that to support. They'll have the feedback forwarded to the correct people (I actually don't know who that would be just now...)

Someone on the ARM side seems to be having the same problem:
