Can AS 5/6 invoke AVRdude command line with the proper project specific arguments and a specified COM port number?
for target chips with a serial bootloader?
(instead of a batch file external to Studio)?
Yes it can. See the documentation for MS VS pre/post build steps and external commands. The following page says VS2005 but I think similar will apply to VS2008 and VS2010 (which is what AS5/6 is):
has anyone been down this road and shared with us an easy way to invoke AVRdude from Studio 6? Before I spend too much time reading Microsoft's generic instructions?
Seems to me that AVRdude from AS5/6 for serial bootloaders would be a frequently needed thing, if not the glitz of AS5/6 and JTAG.
I wrote a thread showing how a "Program" toolbar icon that invoked avrdude could be created - any use? - it's here in AS5/6 forum somewhere.
