Have you tried <http://www.vonnieda.org/software/avrfuses> ? Works perfectly with both AVRISPmkI and mkII. --

Thanks, but it's too late. For now I'm a satifisfied Windows user, at least for this one application. A successful simultaneous installation of both new hardware and new software (on a PC, no less!) is a rare and beautiful thing. -- Joe

This is because of TI FET driver dll, not IAR or Rowley..... There are some fixes from TI for this.
