AVR microcontroller programming help? Answered
I am about to start programming AVR microcontrollers with a USBtinyISP programmer from http://www.ladyada.net/make/usbtinyisp/. The problem is the computer I use is running vista, and the fact that it is 64 bit doesn't make it any better. I tried WinAVR but it didn't seem to be working properly.
I happen to have a bootable linux CD, so mayby that could be used with my computer.
Should I run linux or can I find some other software that will work with 64 bit vista? What software should I use to program it? Please explain in detail.
