I downloaded and installed Studio 4.18 and the the service pack 3 that seems to go with it. During the install some errors occurred with the self registration of several .dll files. AVRstudio hangs when I start it with an error message that says the application information is incorrect. I don't have a clue as to what is wrong. Does anyone have any ideas what the problem is? My computer is a 32 bit XP machine.

 

Thanks,

Roger

The only thing you can try is removing and reinstalling it. May not get much support for the old version.

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected
  4. Difference between a crystal, and a crystal oscillatorhttps://www.avrfreaks.net/comment...

Some old threads about Studio 4.18 installation solutions where UAC is discussed.

Why should it be a problem? laugh I have the exact same set up on my spare machine...just in case....and it worked well for many years before I was forced to Win7.

I was wanting to see how the debugger thing works where you watch what happens as you step through the program code. I thought this would really be interesting. But it looks like what I am trying to do now is not going to get me there. The Window Professional CD I have now is the last piece of Windows software I have owned since I switched over to using Linux machines around four years ago. My Linux machines have given me far less trouble than any windows machines I have had.

 

I forgot mention that I uninstalled and reinstalled the program several times and this did not correct anything.

Just an idea but if you follow a guide such as this:

 

https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/download-windows-xp-for-free-and-legally-straight-from-microsoft-si/

 

You should be able to install a "clean" Windows XP VM on your Linux machine - then try installing AS4 into that. This has the advantage that the Windows XP won't be carrying the "baggage" that your current Windows installation may have (which is likely causing the problems you have to install AS4 there).
