I canceled out of the XC8 compiler install part.  Would that have given two compiler choices inside Microchip Studio or installed MPLAB?

 

Also, I saw some posts about newer versions of gcc - do they work with studio?  After installing the Microchip Studio and rebuilding a project, it says 5.4.0 for gcc's version, but I've seen references to 8 and a google search shows 10.

 

Can these newer gcc versions be used in studio?

The XC8 is a separate installer, not bundled with MPLAB X. It would have given you two compiler choices in Studio.

  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

Sure. Serach for the term "toolchain flavour":

 

 

also:

 

 

You basically set the "Base Path" to the ...\bin directory where the copy of avr-gcc.exe is located.

I guess I am an old dog not up to new tricks.  I think I have the last Atmel Studio version on this laptop, and the previous version downstairs on my bench.  I have no intention of upgrading either of them ever.  But then, I only use older mega's, of which I believe I have a lifetime supply.  I would probably still be happy with AVRStudio 5.1.  I kind of liked it.
