Debug connect problems in CodeWarrior 10.3 on Win XP in VirtualBox on Ubuntu 12.04

For others trying this: along with installing the drivers in windows as described in a number of other places, one also needs 3 USB drivers installed in the USB Settings of VirtualBox; one for the MSD mode, one for the Bootloader mode, and one for P&E Debug mode.

MSD mode: Vendor ID (VID) 1357, Product ID (PID) 0707

Bootloader mode: VID 2504, PID 0200

Debug mode: VID 1357, PID 0087

At one point I was not able to connect with all the extra text in the other fields in one of the driver configurations so I deleted everything but the VID and PID. (I am hoping that is not the cause of the following problem. ;-)

I spent the last 3 days trying to find all the little settings that allowed me to run CodeWarrior on VirtualBox. I finally got it running except for not being able to connect to the board in Run or Debug Configurations.

I go to Debug Configuration, I select a project (including the downloaded program example, ”FreedomTSITest”) and the “Connection” shows my project name, as expected. I select Edit and make sure the Target shows my project name.

However, under the target name, the Connection type shows P&E ARM Multilink etc. The drop down menu gives me two other selections, neither of which I expect are valid for my situation.

Below that, in the Connection tab, my interface is listed as OpenSDA Embedded Debug - USB port, and that is what I expect to see.

Lastly, in the “Port” field I see “Port undetected” etc., which I expect is not the correct setting.

I tried unplugging, replugging, and refreshing countless times.

I tried loading the 102, 101, and 100 versions of the debug driver onto the bootloader (reset down while powering on) and I am quite stuck at the moment.

I have read everything on this site and both the Element14 and MCU on Eclipse sites that relates to CodeWarrior 10.3 and anything remotely related to this issue. (Probably 4-5 times each at least.)

I am humbly asking for any suggestions or solutions anyone cares to offer.


Thank you.
