Apologies that my first post here is a complaint.

Sadly I am having massive problems using a Red Probe+ JTAG adapter on Windows 7 x64. The device appears to be configured correctly and is identified by the IDE, finding the right target..

I can verify that both probe and target board (EA LPC4088 Quickstart) work correctly using a toolchain from another vendor. I can also debug the .bin file created by LPCXpresso using the other product.

I'm not quite sure when the process is failing - the whole IDE locks and Task Manager shows that both crt_emu_cm3_nxp.exe and arm-none-eabi-gdb.exe are spawned but are in a zombie state. I have attached a JPEG of the dysfunctional GUI.

Insanely the console clears itself after code is downloaded to the target so I cannot even show what it reports. (Is there any way of stopping this from happening?)

Any help gratefully received. If more information is needed please ask.
