4.While working on windows which compiler, simulator shpuld use ,right now i
m having codevision AVR ,AVR studio .
5. But i m not gettin how to work on WINAVR .

What is your goal?

If you have to get a project out, and you have a paid license for CodeVisionAVR, it's probably easiest just to use that. CVAVR takes you by the hand and leads you through the process. Support on the Yahoo group and from HPInfotech is quite good. It's not necessarily a "better" tool than WinAVR, but its learning curve is easier to overcome, and it's certainly better than acceptable.

If your goal is to develop software under WinAVR, and you're not familiar with the GNU tools or comfortable with the edit-compile-debug cycle outside a completely integrated IDE, you might want to check out avrfreaks.net articles on the tools. Personally, I have a much harder time navigating avrfreaks than using the tools, but there is helpful information there if you're willing to dig for it.

If you want to develop under both UN*X and Windoze, gcc is a much better option. It is difficult, but possible, to write code that compiles and runs under both WinAVR and CVAVR (I've done it many times), but it involves becoming quite familiar with both tools, and giving up some of the simplifying assumptions of CVAVR, as well as hiding syntax differences behind macros.
