What is the order for installing Studio 4? Atmel offers 4.18 (build 684, 116Mb, 11/09) and two service packs (SP1,build 692,12/09 and SP2,build 700,2/10).

Is is necessary to download and install all three?
Should they be installed in order? Does Studio 4 work if only SP2 is downloaded and installed?

I did a search here for "Studio install" but got no relevant results. Nor is there any information on the Atmel web site in the service pack notes.

Thank you.

Yep.

That's what I do.

And what happened to the old "Simonetta"?

See thread by alank2 in Studio 4 forum. He actually did the experiment of Studio+SP1+SP2 and Studio+SP2 and found the latter was missing some bits. It's a bit sad that SP2 does not say "can't install, SP1 has not been applied"

[as this is a Studio 4 question I'll also move this to the right forum]

The 'Simonetta' avatar is several paintings of Simonetta Vespucci by Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli. She was considered the most beautiful woman in Florence in the 1470's. She was born in 1453 in Genoa and died when she was 22 from what is believed to be a pulminary ambolism. She went out to a party, came home, started coughing, and couldn't stop until she died.
Sandro was enchanted by her and nearly all of his famous paintings have her image. The first 'Simonetta' avatar was from his most famous painting 'The Birth of Venus' (1484) and the new one is from 'Venus and Mars' (1486).
I think that I was in a funk about the total lack of beautiful women in the electronics/microcontroller industry when I signed up here back in 2003. I must have chosen this avatar as a fluke. It's sort-of embarrassing but I just let it slide over time. As to why this particular industry is so exceedingly gender-specific, I don't really know. I once asked radical feminist author Camille Paglia at a local book-signing why so few women enter the electronics/computer field. She said that men get great satisfaction from creating machinery that they can control and women get the same satisfaction from creating children. Seems about as good an explanation as any.

I loaded the three Studio 4.18 files in order and it works OK. After posting the message, I realized that there might be an answer in the Studio forum. But having the message and replies in the general forum is good because in the coming years someone else might have the same question. If the files need to be installed in order then this information should be in Atmel's release notes. A novice might get the impression that a 22 megabyte download was actually a whole program instead of being just a bug-fix update that holds the parameters of three new AVR devices.

Wouldn't their search include all the 8 bit fora?? Why does it matter whether its AVR or Studio4?

Yup there's been quite a few of those here.

I had a hard drive crash a few weeks ago and had to reinstall everything. I downloaded the 4.18 and only SP2. It installed and has worked fine without SP1.

But part of it is missing - did you actually bother to read the thread where alank2 did the experiment?
