So, with the release of Visual Studio 2017 I decided to fully switch and did the following:

  • Completely remove Visual Studio 2015 and all of it's components
  • Remove Atmel Studio 7 and all leftovers (WinUSB, etc.)
  • Reinstall Atmel Studio 7.0.1417


Now Visual Studio 2017 is still working fine and the uninstall gave me a whopping 30gigs of disk space but Atmel Studio fails to load 2 packages on startup and another one when opening my project.

These are in order:





According to the activity log they all fail with 'SetSite failed for package [xy]'


I'm running out of ideas and reinstalled countless times already.

I hope you guys can give me a hint.
