Hi, I'm trying to use the 56800E Flash Programmer (v1.0) command line version.
I use this command: fflash 56801x_flash.cfg pippo.S -remote=127.0.0.1:41475 -LPT1 -llog.txt
and the program reply with this:
56800E Flash Programmer v1.0 Program ran on: Mon Dec 10 16:54:07 2007 Connected to local CCS server at PORT 41475 Configured to use Parallel Command Converter at port LPT1 The device is not powered up, cannot continue, if the device is powered up, attempt a hard reset on the device, and try this action again.
The fact is that the GUI version works well so I don't know exactly what to do (I tried all the possible flags of fflash)...
Hi, for remote and LPT option ok, it was a try. I trid with7without remote, with/without LPT, ecc. Nothing change. I've read the user guide, and I can't find out why is not working. With the same board, same PC, same parallel-JTAG converter the 56800E Flash Programmer.exe works fine, the FFLASH.exe no. Have you and idea?
I did a new installation of CW 8.2 on a pc that never saw CW. I tried first with 56800E Flash Programmer.exe -> ok then tried with FFLASH.exe -> not working
Then I had an idea, I tried to compile and program an example directly from CW -> ok
then tried again with FFLASH.exe -> WORKING!!!
so I think that CW does an initialization of something (that is kept between restart of win), 56800E Flash Programmer.exe does it too (but is not kept at al, even when the program finish the programming), but FFLASH.exe doesn't (and AFAIK there is no parameter to pass to the program).
So for the moment I found a workaround: - install CW - run CW, compile and run the debug of a program on a real board (I used the example isr_Led) - clode CW - use FFLASH.exe
Now I wish to know why I have to do all this to make FFLASH.exe working.
and another thing: it's not possible to have the Flash programmer really stand alone? without having to install CW too?
