Folks,

Is there a way to use to the USB ISP MkII programmer without having to use the s***ware that is Studio?! (I will go over my monthly bandwith allowance if I download the latest bloatware). Years ago there used to be a really nice little standalone programmer for in circuit programming that you used with something like the STK kits.

A command line program would suffice at a push.

Thanks!

You may also download the command line (console) utilities along with Jungo USB drivers from atmel.no - it's not that bloated as a complete AS4.

I actually found a version of AS4 and installed that, but it doesn't support AVR ISP II. My client asked me to install Strudio 5, but .NET refuses to install and Visual Studio needs more disk space than I have free on my hard drive! What an absolute joke Atmel's tools have turned into.

I use my Mk II with Studio 4.

You have one of those 5Gig/Month plans too? I do all my big downloads when I'm at work or on somebody else's WIFI

Nah, I have 100G a month really, I was just being snarky. Wonder why my Studio doesn't have the AVR ISP II in its drop down list of tools.

I am using Studio 4.19 and MKII is most certainly in there. Unless that was a phantom MKII i used about two hours ago ;)

Keep in mind my version of Studio is not the S***ware version but the Cruddware. Costs a little more, but it's worth it :lol:

Where are you looking in Studio 4. There's no doubt whatsoever that AVRISPmkII is supported for ISP.

Try starting with the little "CON" icon on the toolbar.

There is AVR ISP, but not MkII. Maybe my version of Studio is too old (4.11).

Wow! You should have that stuffed, placed in a glass case and donated to a museum.

4.19 is where it's at these days and that's where my picture comes from.

OK, I'll see if 4.19 will install. Ta. :)

??? My 4.12 from early 2006 has not only MkII, but an "upgrade" button as well.

Have you looked at >>all<< the entries on the Connect list?!?

It most definitely does not have it. I have installed 4.19 and it does have it in the list, but won't actually connect. The hardware works because Crossworks programs it quite happily with the the same AVR ISP MkII.

Ah, sussed it, I had to update the Windows drivers for the AVR ISP (obviously). I'd forgotten how cr*p Windows is at USB.

Muchos grassias for the assistance, folks. :)

Didn't the 4.19 installer offer that anyway then?

The installer did install the drivers, but when it wasn't connecting I went to device manager which had that little icon saying the drivers had problems. So, I chose to upgrade/update drivers and that then worked.

I'm guess a Windows user would have realised what was going on a bit quicker.
