I bought one of these a few years ago but never played with it 'til now.

It came with CW2.1.1 special edition. Is there an upgrade to a later version, or is 2.1.1 ok?

2.1.1 doesn't show up when I go to "Start", then "Programs". Freescale version 3.1 for the 9S12 shows up, but not 2.1 for HC08.

I can get it to open if I go to the folder that has the demo programs, then click on one of them.

What is the purpose of the unpopulated U4? Is there an application note that shows how to convert the DEMO board to allow programming of fresh chips?

I noticed Digikey and Mouser are dropping these kits and some of the HC08 chips. Better to switch to HCS08 than play with this?
