Installing Atmel Studio 7
8 January 2016
Download the Atmel Studio offline installer found at the bottom of the Atmel Studio page on the Microchip website. The following steps show how to install Atmel Studio 7 using the offline installer.
1. Run the Atmel Studio Installer
Double-click the downloaded Atmel Studio Installation file to start the installation. Click the Run button in the dialog box that pops up in order to proceed with the installation.
2. Accept the License Terms
The license terms must be accepted to proceed with the installation. Leave the installation path at the default value.
3. Select Required Microcontroller Architecture
Only AVR 8-bit MCU needs to be selected when programming Arduino Uno and MEGA boards, but the other microcontroller architectures can also be installed in case you would like to program these microcontrollers at some stage. The only reason you would un-check the other microcontrollers is to save disk space and you are sure that you will never need to program these other microcontrollers.
4. Software Framework and Example Projects
Optionally the ASF (Atmel Software Framework) and example projects can be installed.
5. System Validation
If the system validation checks are valid, then the Install button can be clicked to start the installation.
6. Installation Started
The next dialog box shows the installation progress.
7. System Restart
After installation the system will need to be restarted by clicking the Restart Now button.
8. Completing Installation
After restarting the system, installation will continue and then complete.
Click the Close button after installation has completed.
