Hi guys,

 

I'm really trying hard to figure out how run AVRstudio 4 AND Atmel Studio 7 together on one machine (Win 10 64Bit), as I need both for actual and older projects.

After installing Atmel Studio 7, actually neither AVRstudio 4 nor Atmel Studio 7 is recognizing my AVRisp MKii anymore...angry

 

As ffemmeffe  wrote here https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... to use driver from the gallery that isn't existing anymore,

maybe anyone can help to get the AVRisp working again.

 

Many thanks!!

...I think I'm getting nearer to a solution, somehow... ;-)

 

First I uninstalled ALL previousliy installed AVRISP MKII  and Jungo drivers completely within the device Manager (plug the AVRISP out an in again after every uninstall process, till it is shown with only an exclamation mark)

 

Now I installed the driver-atmel-bundle-7.0.888.exe (googled for it) as recommended here: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment...
And like magic AVRstudio 4 is recognizing the AVRISP again and working quite fine.

As expected from many bad experiences, Atmel studio 7 now refused to recognize the AVRISP.

 

Installing libusb-win32 (https://sourceforge.net/projects...) with the included nice inf-wizard helped now to make AVRISP be recognized in Atmel Studio 7, but again NOT recognized in AVRstudio 4.

 

Playing aroung with the zadig tool (https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment...) didn't help.

 

I think, I'm missing some basic understanding of this drivers models and how to fix it.

 

Maybe someone can help..

I have both installed on window 7, IIRC I have to select the AS4 driver for the tools if I'm using AS4 otherwise the system defaults to AS7 drivers.

 

Haven't used AS4 for a while though.

...many thanks for your answer!

This might be a nooby question, but how do you 'select' the driver?

I'm not aware it could be changed during work, but this would be very fine.

 

I found this solution with a libusb-filter : https://grahamwideman.wikispaces...

but as far as I understand, he wanted to use the libusb0 driver instead of jungo driver installed with the old Atmel Studio, as ths version of the Atmel studio did not work with libusb0.

But In my case the new Atmel Studio seems to work quite fine with the libusb0-driver, but I need the older Jungo-driver to work with the old AVRstudio 4...

Unfortunately also the separate download of AS7 USB-drivers seems to be not available anymore.

7.0.888 did not make the web site transition (Atmel to Microchip)

Is this the best effort URL?

Copied the 7.0.888 at that web site to this PC.

7.0.666 is at distribute.atmel.no/tools (I forgot to bookmark it)

I have update the link on the previous sticky, thank you. And just to keep it handy I have made a PDF.

 

It still works, I tried to use the JTAG Mk2 with AS4 and of course could not connect, then changed the driver and it's all good.

OK, I understand. But it rather seems to me more as a driver installation than a selection of which driver to choose
(a tool or a batch doing this with a button on the desktop would be quite nice ;-) )

Doing this driver-installation below any time after the program-installation also works fine, as every installaion removes the other driver:

For AVRstudio 4 install :

driver-atmel-bundle-7.0.888.exe

than the driver looks like this in the device manager (sorry for german system language)

 

 

For actual Atmel Studio 7 install:
libusb-win32 installation with the included inf-wizard,

and the driver looks like this in the device manager

 

 

...but I really hope there might be a more resonable way,

like an automated driver selection depending on the application running. wink

Seeing that Atmel doesn't support AS4 anymore and doesn't really want anyone to use it I don't think you will be getting any official help with this.

 

I keep my JTAG MK2 and my AVRISP MK1 strictly for AS4 use ONLY, JTAG Mk3 and Atmel ICE for AS7 use only. As long as you DON'T use the tools with AS7 and upgrade the firmware AS4 remembers the tool's driver. I have just tried the JTAG MK2 and AS4 will still talk to it.

Anyone tried running the AS4 in a Virtualbox running Windows on Windows (nothing says you can't do that ;-)? That would keep one set of USB drivers completely isolated from the other.
