As far as I can tell, Atmel Studio 7 and QTouch Composer DOES NOT work well with each other. I've tried to create an user board project for an entire day and get nothing. There is an one-time error message saying something like QTouch composer cannot resolve the symbol "ASF v3.3.0" (and I know for sure my version is much higher, I've tried to update it). So in the end the ONLY way that I can create an userboard project was to install version 6.2, get the latest ASF for it, get QTouch library and QTouch Composer for it, then use them to create my project.

 

It was so much pain to do such a simple thing. It seems like ASF does not offer backward compatibility or some dev goofed up? Either way, can someone take a look into this problem?

 

And just to clarify, if I create an AtmelBoard project with AS7 then it work perfectly fine.

You can install the ASF version v3.36.2.1031 (is backward compatible up to v3.30.1) in AS7 itself and try.

Check 'ASF version' and 'QTouch version' in attachments.

Just curious, what's your ASF version? One better way is to go for START smiley

this is my ASF version. Latest one (I think). And I can't really use START because I'm using ATMega328P, and somehow QTouch did not show up in START. I guess I'll have to stick with 6.2 for now

1) Uninstall the Atmel Software Framework extension (3.40.0.1184) from Tools -> Extensions and Updates

2) Restart Atmel Studio

3) Install https://gallery.microchip.com/pa...

 

For START you can try http://start.atmel.com/#examples...

I know that I can use START, but START does not support ATMeg328P (Yes, P version, not PB) with QTouch library, while in Atmel Studio I can do that.

 

For now I'll stick with 6.2 for ATMega328P, and use the new ATTiny-1 series with 7 (and it does not even work properly somehow, my opinion about AS7 just went from bad to worst)

 

Thanks for all the help.

Yes ATmega328P is not supported in START but supports ATTiny-1 series.
