CodeVisionAVR is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8, 32 and 64-bit operating systems.
It must be installed and run with Administrator privileges.
On subsequent runs under Windows XP only, Power User privileges may be also used.
CodeVisionAVR V3 is designed to be used in its own IDE and also as an Extension in Atmel Studio 6.1 or later version, which can be downloaded from the Atmel web site.
For the Extension to be installed correctly, Atmel Studio 6.1 or later must be already present on the computer, before the CodeVisionAVR installer is launched.
When installing Atmel Studio 6.1, the user must be logged in as Administrator in Windows.
If the older AVR Studio 5 or Atmel Studio 6.0 are present on the computer, they must be first uninstalled before installing Atmel Studio 6.1 and CodeVisionAVR.
CodeVisionAVR can be also used with its own IDE and the AVR Studio V4.19 debugger. This may be useful if the user doesn’t want to install Atmel Studio 6.1 in order to preserve disk space or has a slower computer.
Details about using CodeVisionAVR with these debuggers are available in the Help topics:
- Using the CodeVisionAVR Extension for Atmel Studio
- CodeVisionAVR C Compiler Reference|Using the AVR Studio 4.19 Debugger
and in the chapters: 1, 4.21 of the CodeVisionAVR User Manual.
A Getting Started with Atmel Studio 6.1 guide is also available.
The compiler is supplied with a large number of example programs covering:
- Alphanumeric LCD
- Graphic LCD, TFT and OLED displays
- SD Memory Cards
- TWI, I2C
- Boot loaders
- Web Server
- XMEGA EBI
- XMEGA Quadrature Encoder
- XMEGA DAC
- DS1820, DS18B20, LM75, DS1621 temperature sensors.
These programs are located in the \Examples and \Examples ATxmega subdirectories of the CodeVisionAVR installation directory.
