Hi folks,

I used to write small batch files which used the STK500.EXE program with some command line options to let our people in the production department program the AVRs in various products (without having to think about buttons and windows like in Studio).

Now after upgrading to Studio 4.11SP2 the new STK500.EXE misses some DLLs. Copying them to the system directories didn't help. What (other than installing the full Studio) can I do to make the new STK500 run on the production computers (usually Win98, some XP) again?

Greetings from Berlin, Germany,
Stefan

There is a Microsoft utility canned Dependency Walker (DEPENDS.EXE) that will report all DLLs that a exe or other dll is dependent upon. It will also show errors (missing DLLs, load errors...).

Do You have access to any MS development tools (eg. MS Visual C++)?

No guarantees, but if we don't report problems they won't get much of  a chance to be fixed! Details/discussions at link given just above.

STK500.exe depends on avrcommon.dll and stk500common.dll which look like they are ActiveX controls. I used regsvr32.exe to register them and stk500 seems to run but I have not tried programming any parts yet.
