I'm porting a project from a different vendor to an Atmel G55 using Studio 7 and Atmel START to pull in all of the drivers I need. I would like to bring as much code over from the prior project as possible and most of that code is C++. I've tried renaming the initial files created by importing the Atmel START project into Studio from .c to .cpp but that didn't work. I also tried unloading the project and editing the .cproj file changing ToolchainName from com.Atmel.ARMGCC.C to com.Atmel.ARMGCC.CPP and Language from C to CPP but that also didn't work and attempting to change it back gave me some odd error at link time. I ended up having to start from scratch by re-importing my ATZIP file.
Is there a known/recommended way to create a C++ project by importing an ATZIP from Atmel START?
As a side note, I can't use Atmel START from within Studio 7. I completely lose the ability to scroll and all of the elements. Instead I have to go to start.atmel.com and export my project.
