Hello,

After long time I want upgrade my old WinAVR4 to AS6.1(AStudio61sp1_1net.exe)

After successfull install (jungo driver upgraded) AS6.1 extracted and installed (no errors during install - no warnings).

Start icon exist in menu and on desktop but I can't start AtmelStudio.
When I am doubleclicking on icon nothing happends and AS6.1 is not starting.

Later I am installed AS6.0 as6installer-6.0.1843.exe) also no warning during install but same problem AS6.0 not starting. No splash no window absolutly nothing. Shortcut on desktop is pointing on .exe (C:\Atmel\atmelstudio.exe /log)

HW configuration

Quote:
WXP (32bit) SP3 1.3GB free ram + swap.IE8 no other application running - clean boot.

I can't find any log where is AS logging any hint how to solve this problem?

Hi !
Are you sure that Studio is not starting ? I have an old machine here (well, an Intel Core2 processor) with almost the same configuration as yours (XP SP3, 1.5Go physical RAM). I can tell that between the time I click on the Studio icon and the apparition of the splash screen, there can be minimum 2 minutes, sometimes more. And that is after a restart, with no other applications running. From the splash screen to the actual window of Studio it is also another 3-4 minutes.

So that can be your problem...

Have a nice day,
Kraal

Starting 6 or 6.1 can take a long time. I often find I've started 2 or 3 times 'cause I forgot I clicked to start.

Start studio. Walk away, or maybe take a nap, and see if it's going. Yea, kindof a nuisance.

If you don't know my whole story, keep your mouth shut.

When is aplication starting I have to see activity of CPU or IO operations of HDD
and I have CPU 5% load. if AS really starting so long then CPU load have to be high and I will wait. This is other problem.
I wrote earlier I listen errror system sound as aplication start and in less 1second fail after click. need any startup log or else to detect why :(

Any other idea?

Check the Event log for a cause of the bell?

There is no law saying that a program that makes you wait is high on CPU cycle or memory, or I/O consumption.

Example: It might be waiting for some event, perhaps it sent something over the net and is awaiting an answer. In such a case, the process is set into a waiting state and will consume very little CPU until the answer arrives or the waiting times out.

Before I switched to an SSD I had a start time of perhaps 1-2 minutes when this was the first start attempt after OS boot. Having said that, you should see a "splash screen" after not more than 15 seconds or so. (IMO, a splash should occur within a few seconds, exactly to avoid redoing the start, and ending up with two instances running).

you are first who has good point

.NET Runtime Optimization Service v2.0.50727_X86

I cant start this service is it required to run?
or is only optional for faster .NET app run?

using .NET repair function probably helps.

Hmh... That process does precompilation of the MSIL format. As most of the dlls in studio is distributed as MSIL, it will need to run. However, it should not be able to fail, and it should be fairly quick...

What error message do you get? There should be some "more extensive info on this.." thing in the event viewer

I am uninstalled AS6.0 and AS6.1sp1 win option remove in installer.
I used repair .NET 4.0 (for sure) and update it on .NET 4.0.3 (2012 relase date) + reboot.

I am not sure if this error is related to Atmelstudio but I found this message in event viewer

.NET Runtime Optimization Service (clr_optimization_v2.0.50727_32) - Tried to start a service that wasn't the latest version of CLR Optimization service. Will shutdown


For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

AtmelStudio is not producing any message in event viewer but I found only this message related to .NET
I found this message after my attempt start .NET services in win-services manager.

Now I need Install Atmel Studio.
Which version should I install 6.0 or 6.1
I got on my hard drive both.

So I decided install AS6.1sp1_lnet.exe
Atmel USB driver ok
Atmel Studio installed ok
Attemp to run aplication from desktop or from directory again fail nothing start no splash

@JohanEkdahl: No atmelstudio.exe in process monitor listing!
No reading data from Atmel\ directory monitored by filemon(systernals)
also 15minutes after start aplication nothing started.

So, that's mean - process imediatly exit after run.

Exist any equivalent tool for windows like strace on linux? I will run Atmelstudio under to see what is happend :(

Sysinternals Processmonitor.

However, this is probably a bit more of a support issue. I would contact Atmel Support and see what they have to say...

Start

"10:36:12.2214444 AM","atmelstudio.exe","3208","Thread Create","","SUCCESS","Thread ID: 3200"

Stop

"10:36:14.4942640 AM","atmelstudio.exe","3208","Thread Exit","","SUCCESS","Thread ID: 3200, User Time: 0.0000000, Kernel Time: 0.3281250""10:36:14.4949647 AM","atmelstudio.exe","3208","Process Exit","","SUCCESS","Exit Status: -1, User Time: 0.0156250 seconds, Kernel Time: 0.2656250 seconds, Private Bytes: 487,424, Peak Private Bytes: 512,000, Working Set: 2,150,400, Peak Working Set: 2,363,392"

I have strong argument for all who think my IT skill can't decide when is process stop! Its really not starting long becouse exit in 1-2 seconds but I dont see any message which can point to root cause of problem.
