Yes I am still here, I never left.
Amazing that I hardly ever log in because a search usually finds the answer I am looking for.
Anyway I got a new Mac for Christmas, which freed up a 100GB drive for my windows laptop.
Rather than to clone the old 10GB drive, I decided to re-install everything but the data.
The real question is which version of studio to install. Given how Studio 4 never got out of bets I opted for the latest 5.1 beta. Mostly so I did not want to do that registration thing. I guess ATMEL likes scanning my info, at ESC and other trade shows I think I was scanned 100 times or so. And it is not like my FAE does not know who I am.
Anyway, I have 10 years of projects in folders. For some reason I can not seem to open or import the project settings *.aps file.
I am really surprised others have not asked about this, or do they just create a new project then add all the files back. Seems a bit wasteful of time.
I also find the default studio screen too busy. I really do not need 10,000 icons showing how many "features" the program has.
One thing I do like is that the touch studio is now integrated into Studio 5.x I was not looking forward to attempting to install that again. This is what melted down my 10GB drive, which choked when I attempted to install the arm demo toolkits from NXP,IAR and ST. I might even do something with the X mega stuff too..
Now if only one of these companies would only let me do a mac port ...
