Can't seem to get avr studio 6 to see my tool. I removed avr studio and reinstalled it and the driver now shows up in device manager (guess jungo is no longer used?). Though avr studio simply can't find it. I read that the avr studio setup now does all the driver stuff in the wizard, so what do you do if it is not working?

Which Atmel Studio 6?

Jungo is in Atmel Studio up to 7.0.1188 inclusive; 7.0.1416 and sub is WinUSB.

A guess is install a functional Jungo.

Atmel USB Driver Installer 7.0.888

Atmel USB Driver Installer 7.0.888
(17.4 MB, updated July 2015)

The latest USB drivers from Atmel, containing fixes and updates that did not make it into Atmel Studio 6.2 Sp2 (build 1563).

 

...

Jungo may be dependent on Windows (major and minor version)

There's likely a reason(s) why WinUSB replaced Jungo.

I tried the driver and it installed ok but atmel studio still does not see it. 

 

I'm using 6.2 latest service pack.

Windows is win7

 

I have installed 6.2 in win7 many times without issues.

try a driver re-install

11.4 Driver and USB Issues

11.4.1 How do I get my Tool to be recognized by Atmel Studio?

This should happen automatically, but sometimes the Windows driver does not recognize the tool correctly. To correct this, you have to check that the tool is listed under the Atmel node in the device manager in Windows. If your tool is not listed, try to find it under Unknown devices. If it is located there, try to reinstall the driver by double-clicking the tool, click the Driver tab and choose Update Driver. Let Windows search for the driver. The driver should be reinstalled and the tool should be displayed under Atmel. Now, the tool should be usable from Atmel Studio.

Why not simply drive the programmer separately with avrdude and set up an external command in AS6/7 to invoke that?

Ah, yes

Some go via Jungo and others via libusb.

Have assumed 'avrisp usb' means Atmel AVRISP mkII; Dean's LUFA AVRISP mkII can go via Jungo, WinUSB, or libusb.

yes, Atmel AVRISP mkII. I believe it's installed as a usb device and working but the studio is just not seeing it. 

 

clawson, if it comes down to it I guess I can try that but should be simple enough to make what worked for the last 10 years work again.  Just don't know what the hold up is with avr. I guess I could reinstall it once more now that the jungo is installed.

That setup ought to be functional.

What's left is Windows 7.

I don't recall any Windows 7 USB issues.

There was one Windows 7 update (IIRC northern Fall'17) that bork'd .NET and therefore Atmel Studio's windows were blank.

WAG - rollback Windows 7

Am assuming that your instance of Windows 7 has been receiving the cumulative updates instead of the security-only updates.

Occasionally a Windows 7 cumulative update is non-functional though the corresponding security-only update is functional.

This month's Windows 7 update has a SSU issue.

I know two things on this update topic. 

1) Updates are not turned on, on this box.

2) The driver was working with AVR studio a month ago. 

 

I'm not sure what messed things up, just one day avr studio was missing. Sadly I have no more info on that but I'm the only one that touches this box.  Possible there is a partial install on here and I have yet to try a full reinstall of avr studio.

That's prudent configuration control (if it ain't broke don't fix it)

Further would be a backup in the form of an image of a specific partition.

Maybe an Atmel Studio 6 re-install would solve the issue, but there may be a fundamental issue (OS's registry, Windows 7 in totality, intermittent mass storage faults and failures)

 

reinstall - for Atmel Studio 7, it's more than reinstall (it's a clean) :

Well 7 causes a lot of build errors. I that instance I whet with if it ain't broke... Maybe its time for another go but IIRC it wants a huge VS install and I won;t have room for that.

It goes without saying that you've already tried unplugging & re-plugging in the programmer?

 

On one of may machines (win 7), anytime I plug in some USB device (say an rsr232-usb adapter)  it humms & whirrs at least 5-10 minutes before being recognized.  I used to not be aware of this and thought my adapters had turned junk....now I know to go away for a while & come back.

 

 

When in the dark remember-the future looks brighter than ever.   I look forward to being able to predict the future!

Atmel Studio 7 on AMD64, 2GB RAM (2.5GB RAM if on a virtual machine), 6GB mass storage

Atmel Studio 6.2 SP2 1563 on AMD64, 2GB RAM (2.5GM RAM if on a virtual machine), 4GB mass storage

no because what once worked well is now broken ... how to recover?  restore from backup (hope)

Gave up and dropped in the stk 500 dev board and I'm able to burn chips. I tried everything but reinstalling window and I'm just not feeling that right now.  Going to have to leave this unresolved and move on.

[qoute=S_K_U_N_X]Gave up ...

Sorry to read that as Atmel AVRISP mkII is an excellent programmer.

 

[qoute=S_K_U_N_X]... and dropped in the stk 500 dev board and I'm able to burn chips.

fyi, Pololu's AVR programmers go via USB and STK500; can consider it unless need PDI or TPI.
