What's the right recipe to get my Windows system to recognize the Xplained PRO boards via the EDBG interface?
This morning, I installed Atmel Studio 7 on my new Intel NUC (quad core i5, 32 G DDR4, 1TB SSD) and life was great: things compiled very quickly. My various Xplained PRO boards showed up when I plugged them in.
Then I made the mistake of installing IAR Embedded Workbench: things also compiled quickly under IAR, but when I switched back to AS7, the system no longer recognized the EDBG USB interface to my Xplained PRO boards.
Following the advice of other threads here, I did a complete uninstall of AS7 (and other Atmel packages) and a fresh download / install. But still no luck: the Xplained PRO board still don't show up, and the device manager doesn't report any new USB devices when I plug them in.
I suspect the IAR drivers are somehow shadowing things. For example, a search for "edbg" on C: shows two edbg_fw.zip files: one in C:\Program Files (x86)\Atmel\Studio\7.0\tools\EDBG and the other in C:\Program Files (x86)\IAR Systems\Embedded Workbench 8.3\arm\drivers\CMSIS-DAP.
What's the right fix? (And is is possible to have AS7 and IAR co-exist?)
