All,

Seems like I just lost my ability to run avr-gcc, make from the command line after my new Atmel Studio install.

Also on the webpage, I can't find the link to the 3.4.x command line tools complete install, just the headers? My thought was to reinstall just to get the paths working.

Yes I show command line tools installed from the extension manager v6patch2.

Not quite sure when this happened, but command line compiling AVR used to work perfectly...

Best,

Randy

Surely it's just a PATH issue?

Possibly, but when I go here...

"Atmel AVR Toolchain 3.4.1 for Windows", on the Atmel website I'm not seeing a download for an executable to run? I have the old 3.0.x version, but I wanted to run the new. My thought is to allow it to set the paths in a 6.0 studio friendly way...

Update:

For now the fix was to reinstall AVR 6.0, update to patch 2, and then downgrade to the old WINAVR gcc, 2010.
That will work for most all of my old Win32 "make" based source code, which is a ton of examples, applications, etc.

The debugging in the new studio is too good to lose.

In my windows computer I see a "Atmel Studio 6.0 Command Prompt" entry in the Atmel menu item. If i click that one I get the Atmel toolchain avr-gcc in PATH (which I don't get if I run cmd).

The 3.4.1 Toolchain must have been released very recently. According to the release notes it includes fixes to bugs I reported and they said they fixed for 3.4.1 two weeks ago. Also a fixed bug I reported five days ago (but I didn't get any confirmation on that one). So maybe they "forgot" the links to the downloads? It will probably come up in next week (at least after someone at Atmel read this thread).

And a side note, it looks like 3.4.1 actually may be usable with the tiny4/5/9/10 and 20/40 families. :-) So let's hope they get up the download links soon. (Atmel: Please don't forget the Linux versions :-))

Ah thank you! That clarifies a lot.

The CMD menu option does invoke the 3.4.0 tool chain, which has problems with some of my old code... but no matter I can now still use with WINAVR from a separately invoked win32 session, who's path points to the old tools.

This is a clever setup from Atmel, kudos!

Just another note. The (now old) 3.4.0 version of the tool chain is available for download at the Studio Archive page if someone needs to download it before they fix the download links for 3.4.1.

I've poked the web team and asked them to update the pages with the missing download links.

Make Atmel Studio better with my free extensions. Open source and feedback welcome!

Thanks for the update.
The linux links gives you a ".tar.gz file" containing only this

This is a dummy file representing avr8-gnu-toolchain-3.4.1.798-linux.any.x86_64.tar.gz
I guess it will be corrected.

The windows version works (I can run it in wine), and I think the most critical bugs that made it completely useless for the tiny10 family are fixed now. :-)
