HELP WITH ATMEL STUDIO 7

Hi folks haven't been on here in a little while if anyone uses atmel studio 7 this is a valid question
I can not get the studio to recognize My USBASP as a tool ..It programs my uC,s just fine ..BUT
I can not change Fuse settings . It says Please select a Tool ..HUH that's funny there's nothing
to choose from ...I remember I used to be able to use the simulator but now it doesn't even show that
any help would be appreciated..Thanks

Here is what i get when i burn program to it so i know everything else is rite ?

This sounds a bit like calling at the Fiat dealer looking for advice about your Ford car :slight_smile:

...R

VERY helpful INFO there

can someone who uses atmel studio help me ...with NO wise cracks i would post this on AVR FREAKS but don't know how

avrdude.exe: Device signature = 0x1e9307

If you're using avrdude for programming, then you're not using Atmel Studio's built-in programmer support, that's probably been added as an "external tool" using something like this.
You'll probably need a similar external command to program the fuses. I don't know offhand how to do that, nor did a quick web search turn up anything :frowning:

Well thank you westfw im currently working on figuring this thing out .. Thank you for a straight answer
