When I switched to win10 I was requested to update the firmware from 17 to 18.
Trouble is that I can't understand and follow the instructions.

- Install Atmel Flip. OK

-Open it's install folder. What install folder? In the folder Flip lies one file
  Flip installer3.4.7.112.exe. is this the one? There is nothing else?

- From file > load hexfile"chose this Hex" (CLICK FOR DOWNLOAD "and click run
  completely incomprehensible. What hex should I chose?


Hey Bjornj,

Please refer to chapter "4.2.1 Changing firmware for Windows users" that starts page 14 of the user's manual. The user's manual is available at the following link:

You need to use latest AVR456-studio-AVRISP-MKII.hex, it is available here:

After the firmware update is complete make sure to use these drivers with the programmer and Windows 10:

The readme for this firmware says "The firmware binaries in this folder work only with Atmel/Jungo drivers
(they are used mainly for AVR/Atmel Studio)!!!"

This does not seem to work with AVRDUDE as the original firmware in the AVR ISP MK2 did
