Hi Freaks,

Does anyone know if it's possible to download a bootloader and an application using stk500.exe or even using AVR Studio GUI?

Or do you have to download the bootloader only then use the serial port to download the app?

Cheers
Dave

Looks like you can just program one after the other as long as the 'Erase device before programming' check box isn't ticked. Opps

You may want to read the bootloader FAQ in the Tutorial Forum. The usual two suggestions are:

1) combine both .hex files into one using Srec (part of the WinAVR distribution)

2) failing that just use a text editor to join the files and hand edit to remove the termination record at the end of the first.
