I have been using AS7 on Windows 10 with an Atmel ICE for some months now without any trouble.

Today I used ZaDig to install drivers for a USBAsp programmer for an unrelated project using AvrDude, not in AS7.

 

Now when I go back to AS7 and plug in my ICE, it is not recognized by AS7 and does not show in the list of tools. I'm guessing ZaDig did something to the driver.

 

In device manage I currently see this:

Devicemanager

 

But in AS7 all I can see is this:

 

How can I re-install the original ICE drivers and get this working again?

 

**EDIT MORE DETAILS **

So far I have tried:

  • Reboot PC
  • Remove and re-install AS7
  • Delete device from Device Manager

 

This topic has a solution.

An Atmel Studio clean (patch, delete, uninstall, install)

Thanks for the reply.

The first link was a bit lacking in any specific technical details, but I tried it's suggestions, with no success.

I tried a studio clean like you suggest, but that didn't work either.

 

I have several ICE's and they are all behaving the same.

 

I'm sure it's a messed up driver, but can't get to the bottom of it.

What version of Atmel Studio 7?

Reason: 1416 and subsequent replaced the Jungo USB driver with WinUSB; Atmel-ICE primarily goes via USB HID.

 

What version and build of Windows 10? (winver)

Reason: periodic USB issues in version 1709 (1703 is mostly stable) with one recent USB HID issue in 1709 that was fixed, IIRC, the next month.

Latest info:

I removed AS7 again. Rebooted, removed any remnants from \Program Files (x86)\Atmel\Studio, and rebooted again.

I then re-installed AS7.

 

Now my Device Manager looks like this:

Going mad here!

 

And the ICE is still not recognized in AS7.

 

Arrrgh! All because I needed to install a USBAsp for one other project.

Windows driver structure drives me mad!

**SOLVED** !!

At last!

 

So, I did a clean uninstall of AS7 and reboot, re-install AS7.

Then when device manager looked like the images in post #7 above I right cliked and selected "Update driver"

Then :

  • Selected "Browse my computer for driver software"
  • Selected "Let me picks from a list of available drivers on my computer

 

Which gave me these options:

Now the trick here is to NOT select the "Atmel-ICE" ones, but chose the "USB Input Device" option instead.

 

Click "Next" and voila it worked!

The secret for me was to go through the below cycle while leaving the Atmel ICE plugged in as many times as necessary until only one device with a question mark showed in Device Manager that would not go away, then uplug and plug in the Atmel ICE.

May have to check under Atmel, Ports, libusb devices, libusbK devices, Universal Serial Bus Devices...

In Device Manager

Find Atmel device, right click, Properties, Uninstall Device (tick Delete the driver software for this device)

Then Action >  Scan for Hardware Changes.

Repeat
