Avrdude

does anybody know a different programmer i am running win 10 avrdude will not even start.

I tried searching.

I can’t vouch for any of those, I suggest you try them until you find one that works for you. I don’t use Win10 so I can’t advise you, but if my memory serves, the Arduino IDE did work for me in Win10 inside a virtual machine.

But as far I know, almost everyone does use Avrdude, so assuming that you followed the instructions for installing whichever IDE and programmer that you are using, the first thing I’d suspect after that is permissions - for the programme itself and for the USB/Serial port and driver.

Thanks i will try some avrdudess does not work either

What issues are you seeing with avrdude?

My memory was correct. Avrdude does work for me in Win10 in a VM, here’s the output from uploading using the Arduino IDE V1.8.13:

Sketch uses 13960 bytes (43%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32256 bytes.
Global variables use 1588 bytes (77%) of dynamic memory, leaving 460 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2048 bytes.
Low memory available, stability problems may occur.

avrdude done.  Thank you.

@atanisoft I think it must be a permissions problem, maybe arising from a faulty installation?

That seems likely, or perhaps the USB device is not plugged into the PC?

No, that’s my favourite and it gives “avrdude: ser_open(): can’t open device “/dev/ttyUSB0”: No such file or directory” which says it comes from Avrdude.
If the programmer is not connected to the board, Avrdude still runs and reports the familiar

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00

… etc.

avrdude does not work on my windows 10 machine.i have now got avrdudess working and installed drivers with zadig and it programmed one modual.I am now going to test it on my powerwall.
i have a 13.5kw 14s powerwall if anybody is interested.Its 270AH at 14s.

thanks for info it does seem to be a driver signiture problem i have now stripped win 10 to bare minimum.Avrdue will just not run.Avrduddes seems ok i will get back to you on that thanks again it can get very frustrating sometimes as i am not a coder and some of you are way ahead of me.Ihave run diybms for over a year and it seems i lose one modual about every 2 months so i saw the latest one and thought it will be a bit more sturdy.
