I am having difficulty moving Studio's default directories, they keep repopulating on each launch.

 

Task:

  • Move 'Atmel Studio\' & 'Visual Studio 2015\' auto-populated directories from current 'Documents\' loc on launch to somewhere else (e.g. 'C:\')

 

How can you complete this? I have done some research -

 

 

I have moved the following options to 'C:\'

 

  • 'Environment->Import and Export Settings->Automatically save my settings to this file:'
  • 'Projects->Projects location:'
  • 'Projects->User Project templates location:'
  • 'Projects->User item templates location:'

 

But these two directories still populate in 'Documents\' on each launch. Is this possible to relocate?

I don't know.

 

I just tell it where to put the project when I create it.

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

My experience with VS2010 / VS2017 etc is that when you create a new project it starts in the last place you created one.

Why C:\ ?

I haven't needed to touch that particular root directory since Windows NT 4.0. Other drives - Yes, C: No.

 

Starting with; I think it was Vista, normal executables (running with user level privileges) are not allowed to write to certain system directories. Writes to folders under the "Program Files", "Windows" and the system root directory itself are normally forbidden.

lol I use 'C:\' for reference illustration, of course I don't use there!

 

I use here, for example -

 

  • C:\Sw\Misc\Atmel Studio
