I'm very new to the embedded technology and I'm using the 56F8367 evaluation board to acquire the signals of an accelerometer as part of my MS thesis.
I absolutely need to use the environment on my laptop, which doesn't have a serial port, nor a parallel port, thus I bought two USB converter cables. No problem with the serial one, because it installs a virtual serial port, but the parallel one is a bit more tricky, since it is installed as a "USB printing support", so CodeWarrior doesn't find a parallel port. I had a look at CCS and I suppose it is possible to configure it in USB mode. I tried both launching "ccs -cc usb" which complains about an invalid parameter and from inside ccs I tried "config cc usb" which complains about "maximum number of ccs reached"... If I first try to delete the existing ccs and create a new one the situation is the same... any idea?
Thanks in advance,
