I have a weird problem:

AVR Studio 6.1 doesn't seem to install in my 64-bit Win 7 machine. It complains that some installation is unfinished, but there is none. Even Ccleaner didn't help.

Could it be already installed VisualStudio 2012?

Another weird thing: WinAVR doesn't seem to work. Tried it on that same 64-bit Win7 machine and in a 32-bit Vista machine. I've used that same WinAVR some years back in my old Win2000 machine. It worked fine.

Only AVR Studio 6.1 seems to work on 32-bit Vista machine.

Loosing the WinAVR is bad, because I could make a start - edit - make - run cycle and have a cup of coffee in shorter time AVR studio gets to the "preparing the solution"-phase (about as long as it takes Vista to boot).

I have 6.1SP2 installed on win7 64 bit.

It is not very scientific but I suggest you uninstall and reinstall. I recently had an issue on an XP machine where I had uninstalled some of the .net sw and studio just failed silently. an uninstall/reinstall pulled in the required dependencies.

Thanks, gregd99. I'll try that.

How does one start a conventional C-project?
I always seem to get the framework template.
(#include )

when you start a new project you get the option of it being :-
- GCC C executable project
- GCC C static library project
- GCC C++ executable project
- GCC C++ static library project

just pick the first in the list and you are away!

Yep. Now I know what I did wrong:
After selecting the GCC C executable project, I selected the target from the sub-menu (on the left) instead of continuing and letting the Atmel studio to ask.

Now back at the Win7 machine: can't uninstall since the installation doesn't even start. Nothing to uninstall.

I'd copy the error message here if that freaking InstallShield let me copy it.

Surely you can PrtScrn it and post a .png ?

I can't even select it, but it looks like the mysrety is revealed: Trying full installation package with .NET4.5 already installed.

The .NET 4.0 seem not to be included "in case". It is installed anyway, and if it fails, the whole Atmel Studio 6.1 installation fails right there.

Retried with the non-full package, and at least the installation worked. With Thinkpad T400 / Windows 7 it "only" took about one minute to launch.

there was a fault with the "full" download that was discussed in another post.

installing the smaller package works fine and gets whatever else you need over the net. As I recall it takes longer to launch AS the first time. Perhaps it will be a bit faster for you second time around.

anyway.... good to hear that you have the install working.

I guess it's the .NET. I tried to install .NET4.0 when I already had .NET4.5 installed. The installer refused, because I already had "the same or newer" version and FAILED.

Anyway, I'm glad the non-full worked. I was planning to learn the assembly, and, for a moment, I was afraid that my little board had become junk.
