Fixed: Issue with FreeMaster component for Coldfire V1 in MCU v10.4

I tried to add the FreeMaster component to my MCF51JM128 project in CW for MCU v10.4. I had a problem because the component showed red X and did not allow a dependent component to be selected (Init_SCI or Init_MSCAN).


I found that the files "C:\Program Files\Freescale\CW MCU v10.4\MCU\ProcessorExpert\Beans\FreeMaster\Init_SCI.int" and "C:\Program Files\Freescale\CW MCU v10.4\MCU\ProcessorExpert\Beans\FreeMaster\Init_MSCAN.int" have an error in them.


"\Init_SCI.int" Line 47 reads:       <Template>Init_SCI_CFV1</Template>      should be edited to           <Template>Init_SCI_COLDFIREV1</Template>


"Init_MSCAN.int" Line 45 reads:         <Template>Init_MSCAN_CFV1</Template>     should be edited to      <Template>Init_MSCAN_COLDFIREV1</Template>


I needed administrator privileges to edit the files. After that I could get my project to run.


Previously I used CodeWarrior 'Classic' with FreeMaster support (other MCUs) outside of Processor Expert. Now I have FreeMaster for MCF51JM128 in CW for MCU v10.4 with Processor Expert!


I learned a lot of useful info from here as well:    Tutorial: FreeMASTER Visualization and Run-Time Debugging | MCU on Eclipse
