In most cases, avrdude-gui.exe file problems are due to the file missing or being corrupted (malware / virus) and often seen at Third-Party Application program startup. Although annoying, these issues can usually be easily remedied through replacing the problem EXE file. As a supplemental troubleshooting step, we highly recommend cleaning up any invalid file path and EXE file extension references that could contribute to creating these avrdude-gui.exe error messages.
Although the majority of error avrdude-gui.exe messages will be solved if the file is placed in the correct file location on your hard drive, you should run a quick test to be sure. You can test the result by running Third-Party Application application and seeing if the issue still appears.
Usually avrdude-gui.exe errors with Third-Party Application happen during startup or shutdown, while avrdude-gui.exe related programs are running, or rarely during the OS update sequence. Documenting avrdude-gui.exe problem occasions in Third-Party Application is key to determine cause of the problems, and reporting them to Windows Software Developer.
A workaround is to use the -u switch to override this check. As the new version with this bug fixed is not available for windows, I tried to compile it myself. I used MinGW and MSYS and it worked, at least for me. I can now even omit the -F switch, which I had to use before, as the device signature was not read properly. If you want to try it, here you go.
There is also another method by which you can install AVRDUDE on your windows machine. AVRDUDE is also included in WINAVR Toolchain. This toolchain includes open source software development tools for AVR microcontrollers.
It looks like avrdude.exe isn't able to communicate with the host processor on the printer controller. Have you ever connected this printer via the USB port on this particular computer before (with Cura, Pronterface, etc.)?
Just looked into the avrdude-GUI program Tronxy support gave you from -lab.jp/hw/avrdude-GUI/index.html. That was very kind of Tronxy to give you a program that isn't developed any more (the GUI, anyway) and hasn't been updated since 2009. Not.
If you feel like learning more about avrdude there is a way to reprogram the ATmega1284 processor without using the USBSerial port. When looking at the board with the stepper/temp/hot end connectors to the top you should see a six pin header marked ICP, ISP or ICSP in the lower right corner of the board (see attached pictures). This is the In-Circuit Serial Programming connector and is directly connected to the 1284 processor.
With one of those connected to the ICSP port via a ribbon cable, the AVRdude Manpage open, and a Command Prompt open to the folder containing avrdude.exe (and the avrdude.conf file and your X1.hex file) you should be able reprogram the firmware with something like:
Given the age of the avrdude-GUI Tronxy gave you it probably includes a very old version of avrdude.exe as well. The latest versions of avrdude.exe ship with Arduino IDE, so if you encounter problems you can download and install the latest Arduino IDE (currently v1.8.9, I think) and use the avrdude.exe that comes with it. By default that gets installed at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\tools\avr\bin\avrdude.exe
AVRpal.net is an Open Source Windows based GUI for the popular avrdude Command line utility for AVR microcontroller Programming.It has got many features with a lightweight easy to understand interface. LibUSBdotnet driver and avrdude is provided within it.
Click on the browse ellipses next to Select File and locate the .hex file created through Atmel Studio6.Click the Write to chip button.You can see the avrdude in action writing the file on to the target.
AVRDUDE is a very popular command-line program for programming AVR chips. Avrdude version 5.5 and higher has built-in support for USBtinyISP! Look below for instructions for windows and mac on how to install the correct version of avrdude
If you connect the programmer to a target (say an attiny2313 target board) and run avrdude -c usbtiny -p t2313 you should get the following which indicates it communicated properly with the chip.
Replace avrdude and avrdude.conf wherever you have them installed, probably /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/etc but not necessarily depending on your development system!
To find where avrdude was installed type which avrdude into a Terminal window and the directory will pop up. To move the files, type mv ~/usbtiny-avrdude/avrdude assuming the new avrdude binary is in a folder called usbtiny-avrdude in your home directory. To find out where the conf file is type avrdude -v into a Terminal window. Do the same thing for avrdude.conf.
Close the terminal and open a new one. If you type in avrdude -c usbtiny -p t2313 (without the usbtinyisp plugged in) it should say Could not find USB device 0x1781/0xc9f If not, check to make sure properly replaced avrdude and avrdude.conf.

1.7.0 (05/07/2011) Change programming clock speed Override chip signature check Some small bugs fixed Support new USBASP firmware version : 2011-05-289 TPI support (supports programmers with ATMega88 and ATMega8) Add New Firmware and New Drivers to Installed folder 1.6.2 (23/04/2009): Fix some Problems with windows Vista (to use older versions with vista users must have write permissions on windows folder). 1.6.1 : Some change in hex view Some Help tooltip add to buttons of fuse settings form Main form disable when auto program is runing Some other improvment And some versions below 1.6.1 which are not in the history
To get a list of supported programmers, type in avrdude -c asdf (asdf is just some nonsense to get it to spit out the list of programmers) Here is my output, yours may vary a little. Don't bother memorizing it, just glance through the list.
To get a list of parts supported by avrdude, type in avrdude -c avrisp (it doesnt matter if you're not useing an avrisp programmer) without a part number into the command line. Don't memorize this list, just glance over it to get an idea of the chips that are supported.
