OK, excellent that you got it to work.

Hi John_NLD
Yes. Start a new project in Atmel Studio by using one of the existing templates. In Atmel Studio, select your STK500 programmer as the tool and then save. Now go to File -- Export Template In the dialog box that opens, make sure that 'Project template' is selected. Click Next. In the next dialog box, give the new template a name. Click Finish.

The next time you start a new project, the new template should appear in the New Project dialog box. Starting a new project from this template will ensure that your STK500 is selected by default.

Hope this helps.

Hi Greg
Yes, you can use the Atmel ICE (ATATMEL-ICE) instead of the AVR Dragon. It has the same programming and debugging capabilities.

And here is a link to the Atmel-ICE product page for reference: https://www.microchip.com/DevelopmentTools/Produc...

The accompanying files can be found on this page: https://www.elektor.com/c-programming-with-arduin...

You need to scroll down and look under the Downloads section - the link name is Arduino_C_source_code.

This direct link should also work: https://www.elektor.com/amfile/file/download/file...

There may be some time in the future, but not immediately.

Theoretically, any Mega 2560 should work, even a clone. I have always used the arduino.cc Mega 2560 myself.

Hi Chris
Although I have not tested it myself, the Atmel-ICE should work with the book. I see no reason why it should not as the Atmel-ICE supports 8-bit AVR microcontrollers. It makes no difference whether the AVR is on an Arduino board because the ICE connects directly to the AVR via the ICSP header.

You can use it to update the current bootloader, restore a bootloader that has been overwritten and program a bootloader to a new microcontroller.

Hi again Dave
I finally figured out what is going on with the missing template file issue. The missing file problem was actually answered here: http://wspublishing.net/avr-c/atmel-studio-proble...

Further to the above answer, I discovered the following:
1) If Atmel Studio is in Standard mode, the template files need to be in Documents - Atmel Studio - 7.0 - Templates - ProjectTemplates (as described in the book)
2) If Atmel Studio is in Advanced mode, the template files need to be in Documents - Visual Studio 2015 - Templates - ProjectTemplates

So the solution to using the templates in both modes is to copy them to both destinations.

When I wrote the book the build of Atmel Studio that I used did not have the Standard and Advanced mode, so this problem never arose. I have updated the article on this page with some notes on fixing the problem in yellow. (If you do not see the yellow blocks, just refresh the page to update the CSS.

I just updated to Atmel Studio 7.0.1006 and my Arduino templates disappeared from the New Project dialog box. To fix the issue I copied the templates to Documents - Visual Studio 2015 - Templates - ProjectTemplates
After restarting Atmel Studio the templates were back. It seems that this is a bug in the newer build of Atmel Studio.
