I'm trying to test out my new Xplained mini 328P by running a little test program to turn the LED on. The code compiles but when I try to start without debugging
I'm prompted to upgrade the firmware. When I try to perform the upgrade I get the below message.
I went through the steps in the below link but that did not resolve the problem.
Below I've listed version numbers and steps I've taken to resolve the issue. Please any help will be greatly appreciated. I want to play with my new toy :-)
First Uninstalled all Atmel programs I could find and rebooted my machine
Then I Installed Version of Atmel Studio 6.2.1563 - Service Pack 2
OS Version: Microsoft NT 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 (Platform: Win32NT)
Then I installed driver-atmel-bundle-7.0.712.exe
Installation did not complete. It actually did a rollback of what it tried to install.
Then I installed driver-atmel-bundle-7.0.666.exe based on the instructions from the below forum:
I did notice it's an older version than what is download from the Atmel Gallery.
This driver bundle installed successfully but still no luck upgrading mdbg firmware. Got the same old cycle power message.
I then tried installing driver-atmel-bundle-7.0.712.exe
I got the dialog that asks if I want to repair or uninstall. I selected Repair, and the installation was successful this time.
I got all excited thinking I got it this time :-) Nope got the same cycle power message as before.
Tried a reboot of my machine and still no go.
Opened an account with AVRFreaks in hopes of getting a clue :-)
