Hi there, I was just trying to set up the AS7 to see if everything's about alright to use the atmega32 but (I guess, I don't really know if I understand the issue here) every time I try to debug the program I get the same error "recipe for target 'theproject.elf' failed" and the output
------ Build started: Project: GccApplication4, Configuration: Debug AVR ------

(this is the code just in case, but it doesn't matter what I type in there it always displays the same error, so I guess that's not the problem right?)

I tried repairing and reinstalling the atmel studio. It works just fine in assembler and I was able to write to the microcontroller with the mplab snap but I understand that's bc it doesn't need any .elf file in that case.
I also tried creating a .elf file myself from Tools>Device Programming>Production file but I definitely didn't know what I was doing because it didn't fly. I may be omitting some basic step along the way since I'm extremely new to programming avr.
