By way of an experiment I need a copy of ATPROGRAM.EXE and it's support files but I don't really want to download and install Studio just for that.

 

According to this article...

 

https://microchip.secure.force.c...

 

...it is possible to take it from a working install.

 

Would anyone have time to have a look, see how big those directories are, and if possible zip them up and post them?

Brian,

 

I've done step 1 so now have an atprog.zip with the four directory trees. However it is 164,702KB (the "packs" account for 9,600 files!) so do you have some cloudspace somewhere that I could put it in?

 

Alternatively do you want to nominate any of these to be culled to reduce the size?

Thanks Cliff,

 

I'm not interested in any of the 32-bit stuff just the 8-bit AVRs.

That helps quite a lot but it's still 99MB so is too big for an attachment here - so I need somewhere to put it.

 

(wait a mo - my sister-in-law works for Dropbox and she gave me a load of space there - let me see if I can work out how to share something to you on that...)

OK, so that's not going to work - I forgot that our corporate firewall won't allow access to file sharing sites (to prevent accidentally sharing the "family jewels")

Hmmm, I can IIRC accept emails up to 70MB.

 

If it helps shrink it further I can lose all the xmega stuff and any automotive stuff.

Ooh, that's close. With Xmega gone it's down to 75,846KB

 

I have a plan - in both "mega" and "tiny" it has directories for "avrasm" (the def.inc files) and also "simulator" (the DLL models of each micro). I'm guessing these aren't need so I'll try trimming those too...

Ah ha! It's just the simulator DLLs that are eating most of the space. With those gone I have it down to 45,805KB so PM me an email address.

To wrap this up...

 

with Cliff's kind help I now have a working install of ATprogram using the instructions in my first post's link.

 

This is what I am doing with it...
