To Replicate:

  1. Launch Microchip Studio
  2. Click New => Atmel Start Project
  3. Create a project using Atmel Start.  In my case, for a SAMD11 Xplained Pro board
  4. Click [Generate Project]
  5. Build the project (no errors detected)
  6. Realize that you wanted to change something in Atmel Start
  7. Click Project => Reconfigure Atmel START project.
  8. Make the change(s) in Atmel START
  9. Click [Generate Project] again
  10. Observe error message listed above.

 

Workaround:

None known.  Except perhaps for getting the Atmel START configuration exactly perfect the first time.

... and it just bit me again.  Am I the only one to get this message?

Possible solution (I tried a bunch of stuff, and I suspect this is what made it work):

 

- Quit Microchip Studio (may not be necessary)

- In Atmel START, open the saved .atstart file ([Load Project From File]) *not* the .atzip file.

- Re-build the project file ([Export Project], [Download Pack])

- Update Microchip Studio project from that (Project => Update Atmel Start Project from Start file)
