Atmel Studio 7.0 , Arduino project import fails for non-English OS

Hi all,

We have been experiencing issues with Atmel studio 7.0 Arduino sketch import, on non-english operating systems. So i thought i will write a workaround for this issue

To fix the issue,

  1. Open Arduino IDE
  2. File -> Preferences -> "Editor Language" -> English
  3. Close Arduino IDE.
  4. Now open Atmel studio 7.0.
  5. Import the project.
  6. It should work.

To be clear this is an problem with Atmel studio, but not necessarily a bug because Atmel studio still cannot claim that it is tested for all languages at least anything other than English, though most of the things work out of the box.

Have a good time with studio :-)
