I don't really know if this is a new topic or not, as searching the forums here finds several reports of this very same isssue.

Installing AVRStudio 4.14 on my WinXP PRO workstation results in error messages saying that DLLs were not able to self-register (access is denied).

IT here has spent days trying to address this issue as if it is caused by a virus or hidden service or registry issue.

Has anyone solved this problem already?

I think others have found that you need to install using an account with Admin priveleges.

Ya know, I seem to remember that happening to me too. It didn't upset me and everything worked fine so I forgot about it.

Are you having problems running Studio? If not, I guess you can submit a bug to Atmel and live with it. If so, then submit a bug to Atmel and escalate it! :twisted:

PS: Totally OT: How did the 2-port memory work out? Hope the project went well!

Engineering seems to boil down to: Cheap. Fast. Good. Choose two. Sometimes choose only one.

There was a problem with AVRstudio 4.14 and Windows 2000 Pro (at least up to Win2kpro service pack 4). I read a claim that AVRstudio 4.14 included Microsoft .NET based software, which requires an updated Win2kpro windows installer. In any case the updated windows installer is required by Win2kpro in order to install AVRstudio 4.14.

This is strictly from memory, but as I recall it the old Win2kpro windows installer would cause the AVRstudio library load to fail with reports of .dll problems. The library load happens after most of the AVRstudio files have already been loaded.

I would have thought WinXP was recent enough, but it might require a windows installer update of its own???? Are you using the most recent XP service pack?

WE're up to WinXP Pro SP2, bot SP3 because IT says that there are reports of SP3 problems.

To solve the issue They've set me up with another box with AVRS installed and wporking. I'm remotely operating the box using LogMeIn, which is an excellent remote accesws tool.
