I have a board compatible with SparkFun’s Pro Micro and am trying to burn the bootloader to it. I’m using an USBasp programmer, have the latest version of the IDE, and put SparkFun’s addon fies in the Arduino sketchbook location.
The Pro Micro shows up in the menu, and I have it and the USBasp selected.
I installed the USBasp driver from here (latest version): http://www.fischl.de/usbasp/
When I try burning the bootloader, I get the error message:
Arduino: 1.6.3 (Windows 8.1), Board: “SparkFun Pro Micro 3.3V/8MHz”
Error while burning bootloader: missing ‘bootloader.tool’ configuration parameter
This report would have more information with
“Show verbose output during compilation”
enabled in File > Preferences.
I have been trying to get this to work for a long time to no avail. Any help would be very much appreciated!
