program AT90S8515 with AVRISP mkII

The AVR ISP mkII does not support the AT90S8515 by default for programing. There s a simple workaround for that:

Go to the path where your Atmel stuff is installed. In my case it is:

  • C:Program Files (x86)atmelAVR ToolsPartdescriptionfiles
  • Look for the file AT90S8515.xml
  • Locate the <ICE_SETTINGS> part and change the <MODULE_LIST> to [SIMULATOR:STK500:STK500_2:AVRISPmkII] and add a empty <AVRISPmkII/> node like this:


<ICE_SETTINGS>
<MODULE_LIST>[SIMULATOR:STK500:STK500_2:AVRISPmkII]</MODULE_LIST>
<AVRISPmkII/>
