Microcontroller Programming » How to load hex file to ATMega?

Hi all,

I know next to nothing about C programming, so my NerdKit has sat basically unused for a couple of years. I do however know relay/ladder logic- it's part of my job. I recently wanted to get back into tinkering with stuff and found an excellent compiler software that lets you create hex files for certain ATMega and PIC chips in ladder logic. It has a similar interface to old Toyopuc software. Problem is this software compiles a hex file and I don't know what to do with it. When I first got my kit I remember doing some basic C stuff in WinAVR and then creating make and hex files, but I'm clueless on how to use just a straight hex file.
