In the past I have used the KEIL IDE to compile code and create a hex file which I have downloaded to a number of 2129 boards via the RS232 port without any problems. I now want to use the LPCExpresso IDE to develop and compile new code. I have added the line 'arm-non-eabi-objcopy -0 ihex ${BuildArtifactFileName}${BuildArtifactFileBaseName}.hex' to the post build steps and changed the artefact extension to HEX. The BUILD creates a HEX file but in trying to download it to my 2129 target board using the Philips Flash Utility, an message appears stating that it is invalid or unsupported HEX type.

Any ideas please?
