Hello, I was using Codewarrior 126.96.36.1990 fine with older version of PE-Micro's USB-ML-CF BDM interface hardware . Last week it got damaged, so got the latest USB-ML-CF h/w. I have installed the latest driverfrom P&E website. But my Codewarrioe IDE is not able to recognize this USB, I keep getting message "Error: Select port number within valid range " , subsequently I get this message "PEMicroProtocolPlugin: Can't connect to PEMiicro".
It does look like some kind of DLL or plugin is missing that is needed for CW IDE to work with latest USB-ML-CF ? Has anyone experienced this issue ?
I used the P&E diagnostic interface to check the working of this new USB-ML-CF BDM interface with my target and it seems to be working fine, every time. So, it is the Codewarrior which is unable to recognize this USB interface.
OK, you are using CodeWarrior for ColdFire 5.0. The latest version is 7.0. The older version of CW may not recognize the new cable. What I would do is download the Special Edition version of CodeWarrior 7, install that, and see if the debugger recognizes the connection then. Since the Special Edition versions are free (they have limitations), you can determine if it is a CW version problem without incurring any expense, other than the time to download and install the software.
1) If your program fits within the Special Edition's code limits, continue to use the Special edition. 2) See if you can find an older version of the USB-ML-CF BDM interface somewhere, possibly on eBay.
