Freescale CodeWarrior IDE
Putting the battery subject aside, It was time to check the CodeWarrior Installation.
I plugged in the XL_STAR to my PC.The USB device drivers installed without a hitch.
I then ran up the FreeScale CodeWarrior but encountered a read only error pop up about Read Only access to the preferences file.
Since I have Windows 7 restarted it using "run as administrator" to enable read/write access to the preferences file and it worked.
Did I miss a note in the documentation about this?
[29/07/2011] - Since then , I granted the User's group Modify rights to the CodeWarrior IDE 5.9 Prefs file in CodeWarrior bin folder
[29/07/2011] - I also deleted all IDE.EXE*.dump files in the same folder.
[29/07/2011] - I see how it goes.
[31/07/2011] - No problems as yet.
[04/07/2011] - None of the above configurations or problems encountered when installing and running on Vista.
I ran the Updater and updated the 3 patches it found on the Internet.
I then restarted CodeWarrior, reloaded the XL_STAR demo program, remade the file and executed the debug mode.
It worked as expected allowing me to single step through the sample code.
