Hi everyone, these are my first days with Atmel Studio. I've created a simple project with https://start.atmel.com/ , then I've downloaded the resulting ATZIP package.

I've imported it in Atmel Studio using File -> Import -> Atmel Start Project. Everything went good and my solution was ready.

I've started working on it on a dedicated folder, so without touching the generated files.

 

Today I went back to Atmel Start, reopening the original project, and I've changed a couple of things (mostly pin labels). Then I've downloaded a new ATZIP file.

 

How can I re-configure my solution with this new package? I've tried the same Import procedure as before, specifying "Add to Solution", but now I get this error:

 

 

I suppose it is not the right way...

Thanks for your help

Instead, if I try Project -> Re-Configure Atmel Start Project, it just opens the Atmel START homepage in a new tab, but nothing else and the buttons does not respond to clicks.

That error code indicates "Project Already Exists". You need to rename the first project in the solution in Studio. Or you need to rename the new project in Start and re-download. Then you should be able to import and have both projects in the solution. If you need to combine changes from both projects, you'll need to handling it manually or try a tool like WinMerge.

They are not two different project but the second ATZIP is just the older one, updated.

I believe the correct procedure here is to use the reconfigure button:

 

But it just opens the Atmel START homepage without possibility to click on buttons...
