But when trying to program, I get the message that I need to modify avrdude.conf, as it says in the instructions of that code. I was trying to do that, but when trying to save the file, I get the warning: "access denied". I also can't move files to that directory.
I am using IDE v1.8.3 on Windows 7 at the moment. Has anyone an idea how to change that file or has anyone a different solution?
The programming would be done with an Uno as ISP, and the blink sketch to be programmed, only to make it work; I will worry about the code later.
BTW, I am just new to the forum, so I hope this is the right place to post this.
Geez, that's a while ago.
Don't know if I even remember what exactly I changed there.
I think right click on the file/folder/whatever you try to modify, and then the tab "Security", you are given some permissions for SYSTEM and the different users. You then alter the rights for the user account which you log in to.
You obviously need admin rights to do that.
Not sure if this was the exact thing that denied the access in this case, but it's what I would shoot for.
Hope that helps
