Here you will find your Windows PC and MPLAB SNAP.
I don't want to install the IDE on my PC. (Microchip studio, Arduino IDE, etc.)
However, I want to program to the device using avrdude.exe on this PC.
How do I get and install a USB driver?

This topic has a solution.

MPLAB Snap is in an AVRDUDE patch.

Has to be AVRDUDE?

Reason : pymcuprog

No, any lightweight writing software will do.

In other words, does the combination of "avrdude-6.3.0-arduino 18" and "MPLAB Snap" work on Windows without an additional USB driver?
Currently I only have a PC with Microchp studio installed, so I can't test anything.

Should though I don't have that setup to try; a concern is USB VID and PID (didn't read AVRDUDE source)

 

edit :

Don't see Microchip for USB VID.

If that MPLAB Snap has recent firmware then can switch that MPLAB Snap from PIC mode to EDBG (AVR, AVR32, SAM)

Snap is already in use at Microchip studio, and that's okay.
I will try it in the office at the beginning of the week.

I was able to use SNAP on a PC that does not have the development environment installed.

This saves me the trouble of installing the IDE on factory PC.

 

Thank you very much.
