I am trying to use the Arduino Pro Micro. As others have reported I have used several for a bit but eventually they get bricked and the USB is no longer recognized (Windows 10). I tried all the suggested tricks and now am trying to burn a new bootloader. I tried the using the Arduino IDE, it tries but fails. Some have suggested the Nick Gammon bootloader as an alternative.
Until now I have only used Arduino IDE to build simple single .ino projects. I have also been using the Eclipse Arduino plugin for multi-file projects with success, but it only allows one .ino per project. I see in the Gammon programmer code on github multiple directories with multiple .ino files.
How do I go about building this software (my C++ project building is rather rusty)? Can I do it with the Arduino IDE? Eclipse Arduino plugin? A pure Eclipse C++ project?
