I've just built up a new computer, using WIN7 for the OS [my XP machine crashed big time].
My trusty ol' STK500 worked great with the XP machine, interfaced with a USB-RS232 converter cable.
Using the same cable, I couldn't get Studio4 to "see" the board. I couldn't find the driver that came with that cable, so I bought a new converter cable, and freshly installed Studio4.18SP3, and the driver that came with the cable.
Same problem, no connection. I have 3 500s, and none of them are seen by Studio. There doesn't seem to be any troubleshooting means, just "no connection," so I'm flying blind. I have no idea what the problem is.
Can anyone suggest a magic bullet that will get my WIN7 box to fall in love with my ol 500?
