Hi, 

 

I'm opening an old project in AVR32 Studio 2.6. This is on an updated Win10-64 machine with jre-8u271-windows-x64.exe installed. 

 

The IDE gives the error message "Could not open the editor: Editor could not be initialized." After that there are many lines of Eclipse and Java error messages starting with "java.lang.NullPointerException". 

 

Is this a know problem with a simple fix? Will I need an older or 32-bit JRE?

 

 

Best,

Børge

Any issues running a newer/current version of Studio? You should be able to import the project.

 

I have just gone trough the pain of updating my computer to Win10 and had several problems running some programs.

Hi John, 

 

I decided to take the hint and join the modern world. Project imported OK into fresh installation of Microchip Studio. 

 

We use a custom command line build script, so 'Studio is only for editing purposes. 

 

Thanks,

Børge

Keep in mind that you can even include the make file in your project, Studio 7 has the ability to use an external make file.......

If interested shout out here. I personally do not use it as I love the internal make file generation, but there are enough people here that can help you out on how to use an external make file in your project.

This makefile has been through a carwash and back :-) Way too much manual edits that I'd trust an IDE to make sense of it. 

 

Thanks for your offer, though!

 

Best,
