Can both Studio 4 and Studio 7 be installed on the same computer at the same time and invoked individually?  I need to use Studio 4 to maintain legacy products but want to use Studio 7 for newer products.  Right now I'm using Windows 7 Professional.  What problems, if any, would I encounter?  Also, would the version of Windows (7 Professional vs 10) be a factor?

I am doing it here with no major issues.  Both on Windows 7 and Windows 10.

 

Only issues you will run into is the programming/debugging hardware if its shared.  The IDE's will be 'updating' the programming hardware to suit their fancy.  OTher issue you may run into is the drivers themselves, but thats not always the case depending on the build of windows you are using

Hi Jim,

 

Thank you for the quick reply.  Currently we are using Windows 7 Professional and our Headquarters wants to standardize on Windows 10 as much as possible throughout our organization.  Therefore my question.  We are using Windows 7 Professional, Studio 4 (4.18) and the Atmel JTAGICE-mkII debugger.  I'm doing research to find it we can have the best of both worlds and selectively use either Studio 4 or 7 on Windows 10.   We will gladly upgrade to Windows 10 if this is possible.

 

We have been able to get Studio 4 and the JTAGICE-mkII debugger working on Windows 10.  I've heard that Studio 7 does not support the JTAGICE-mkII debugger any longer.  Last week I ordered the Atmel-ICE-Debugger from Microchip (Digikey, actually), which states it works with Studio 7.  We also use the IAR C Compiler, which does an excellent job.   Which debugger and compiler do you use with Studio 7?

 

Our legacy products use the ATmega168, ATmega328P and also the ATmega128 and are anticipating different variants in the future.

I Have not use the JTAGICE-MKII.  For Studio 4.18 stuff I don't use a debugger.  I used the simulator these days.  I don't remember what I used back then.

 

Everything else I use Studio 7.  In fact I think just about all of my Studio 4 files with the exception of a select few have been upgraded to Studio 7.

 

 

Question for you....Why not make copies of all of your 4.18 projects and hide them,  Then try updating all the 4.18 stuff to AS7?  This way you can use all teh latest tools and not have to play Driver tag and the like?

 

The only reason I still have 4.19 is a customer requirement.  Other than that, everything has been converted to AS7.

possible though am uncertain if Jungo (USB driver, AVR Studio 4, Atmel Studio before 7.0.1416) will stay functional wrt Windows 10 builds especially for feature updates (iow versions)

Recommend configuration control of Windows 10; if that's too onerous then system restore points before any Windows 10 update.

Legacy tools are supported in Atmel Studio though are not supported in MPLAB X.

First two have follow-ons in megaAVR 0-series; a guess is the USB megaAVR (mega32U4, etc) follow-on may be megaAVR 1-series.

mega128 - consider XMEGA128A1U; would be pleasantly surprised if (when?) there's a re-spin.
