I am having programmer problems with Studio 6.2. I repeatedly get 'busy' status after a programming attempt. I have been having this issue with programmers ever since version 4. I have used XP, Win10, and Vista pro as platforms, and Atmel AVR-ISP MK2, Dragon, and the Olimex AVR_ISP MK2. Like others I must exit and restart Studio (a 4 minute time sink repeated many times in the course of debugging) in order to do a new programming session. And yes, you must carefully match the device, and if using SPI make sure the clock is not too fast. This situation is akin to giving someone a free Ferrari, but to start it you will need to remove all 12 spark plugs and prime the cylinders, after which it may or may not start. Is there any workaround? I have installed Studio 7 on a different computer (ASUS laptop with WIN10), but that seems even worse, it can't find either the Dragon or the Olimex AVRISP. How can such wonderful micros, and an otherwise excellent toolchain, suffer from such an obvious problem? Design the hardware, lay out the board, write the code, get to delivery date and...oops, can't program the processor- help!!
