Installing Atmel Studio is quite straightforward but before that, we have to make sure of system requirements for an easy and enjoyable experience of programming Atmel’s Microcontrollers.

There are two types of Installer Available ‘Web Installer’ and ‘Offline Installer’. Web Installer is recommended by Atmel if you have an internet connection. Otherwise, the Offline Installer will work fine. I recommend Offline Installer.

Microchip has released the latest version of the installer which is rebranded. I still recommend the old Atmel Studio 7.0 released by Atmel as it stable and works great out of the box.
