I used the simulator for an earlier project in Atmel Studio using a different board configuration. I then loaded the sample program which came with my kit, which automatically configures the board type. I noticed that I no longer have an option for a simulator. Why can I not use the simulator in this project? I thought this option was always available. I wanted to test how the code runs, and get a better understanding. I ordered a JTAG cable, and I wanted to get a better understanding of the code before I try to compile and push it to the board through the JTAG interface.
By the way; is this forum the right forum for questions about the code? I intend to slightly modify the source, and do have some questions about it.
