Hi,

 

I  sent a project to a colleague, this project is configured with Atmel Start.

My problem is that when my colleague open the project he can't open the Atmel Start window.

We have the same version of Atmel Studio (7.0.2397) and same version of Atmel Start (1.0.162.0).

Where is the problem ?

This topic has a solution.

I think you're going to need to give more details!

 

EDIT

 

Also, remote diagnostics is hard enough at the best of times - doing it by "chinese whispers" is only going to make it worse! Can you get your "colleague" to join the discussion here?

  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

Hi,

Sorry for not answering your messages.

 

When we change the project configuration via Atmel Start, a backup zip file is created. This is what I was sending to my colleague.

I found out the solution and will explain it.

 

In order to get a projet back from a backup, we need to follow these steps:

  1. Create a new empty atmel start project.
  2. Close the Atmel Start window and open the folder which contain the new empty project. Extract the backup zip file (except the ".cproj" file) in this folder.
  3. Go back to Atmel Studio 7. In the Solution Explorer, right-click in the "include" folder, Add>Existing item. Select all files in the "include" folder of your new project.
  4. Same for "src" : In the Solution Explorer, right-click in the "src" folder, Add>Existing item. Select all files in the "src" folder of your new project.

 

Now the new project contains all files from the backup project and can be modified via Atmel Start.

 

Thanks awneil & dnoyeB for your help even if i didn't respond at time.
