S32 Design Studio : Launching project Default (61%) Stall

Question asked by Christopher Holland on Sep 20, 2018

For over a year, S32 Design Studio and PE Micro 'Multilink Universal' worked just fine.

Now, all of a sudden, S32 stalls at 61% for a very long time. Eventually it does reach 100%. Maybe after 5-10 minutes or so.

I don't know what could have happened. I moved the USB cables, but I moved them back.

I think there might have been a Windows Update. (I am using Windows 7) 

So now, I am trying to figure out the proper way to debug the issue.


It doesn't matter whether or not PE Micro 'Multilink Universal' is plugged in or not. It still sits at 61% for a long time.

1. I tried different hardware/projects, but that didn't make a difference.

2. I tried reinstalling PE Micro Drivers, but that didn't make a difference. 

3. I tried updating S32 Design Studio, but it's all up to date.

4. When I run pegdbserver stand-alone, it seems to startup up almost instantly.


Everything is working, it just takes a very long time.


I am going to keep mucking with it. I'll post results if and when I figure out what happened.
