Windows 8.1 and AVR Programmer

Seems that this is a real pain…

I flashed my TG9X some time ago using the Sparkfun USBasp programmer with no problem on XP.

Now trying to read the eeprom from the Tx I get the dreaded “avrdude: error:could not find usb device ‘usbasp’ with vid=0x16c0 … etc.

I wonder whether there is any further resolution to this problem?

I tried the various method described on the 'net, related to driver signings and proper installtion of drivers, but to no avail.

Any advice would be more than welcome!

Best DP.
