I tried to search the forums for the right solution and have noticed a LOT of driver issues, but mine is a bit different as I may have done something foolish.

 

Windows 10, Microchip (Atmel) Studio 7.0, Atmel-ICE debugger/programmer.

The Atmel-ICE worked fine earlier today.

 

I was trying to get my Atmel-ICE to work in an Arduino environment and saw some forum posts suggesting to modify the drivers using Zadig, which I did and changed both the Gateway and CMSIS-DAP drivers to libusb drivers.

This didn't solve my Arduino issue, and so I decided to go back to Microchip Studio but no luck - no longer recognized.

I uninstalled both devices in Windows Device Manager (did NOT click to delete the drivers), unplugged and replugged the device, but it simply selected different non-functioning drivers.

I tried to navigate to manually select drivers, but Windows thinks it's smarter and is telling me it already has the best drivers selected.

 

I then uninstalled and reinstalled Microchip Studio, but this did not resolve my issue.

 

My current driver situation:

 

 

Driver for the Gateway:

 

 

Driver for the CMSIS-DAP:

 

I've tried to use Zadig again to send the CMSIS-DAP device back to the WinUSB driver, but it keeps rolling right back to this libwdi driver.

 

How can I safely wipe the slate clean and get the drivers back to a functioning Atmel-ICE <--> Microchip studio situation?

For the CMSIS-DAP device, choose Update Driver, and Select the USB Input Device driver to reset it back to the original driver... The USB Input Driver is either in System or Microsoft in the huge list of available drivers....

I did as you described above and Microchip Studio now successfully recognizes the tool again.

Thanks!
