MCF5271 Debugging Problems in CodeWarrior 10.6

I've recently switched to cw10.6 and am experiencing problems debugging my projects using the PE Micro Cyclone Max.

The project and debug configurations were imported from a previous stable 10.2 build, and compiles just fine in 10.6.

However, now when I launch a debug session the code is slow to download to the target and I receive the following warning:

Starting 3rd party flash programming...

ERR: Warning: Programming algorithm not found for this device.


Once the code eventually loads, I get a further warning regarding breakpoints:

"Unable to set all the breakpoints requested. Some breakpoints may be disabled and will not stop the processor"

I only have two breakpoints defined, and just one active. I believe the MCF5271 uses software breakpoints, so I should be unlimited.


In addition, I often loose my debug context and control of the target while debugging.

I noticed that the Cyclone Max firmware was updated from 7.80 to 7.84 when I 1st ran a CW10.6 debug session.


Are there any recommendations to fix these debug problems in CW10.6?
