debugger for the S08PA32

We have been using the HC08/S08 processors for 20 years, but have just designed the S08PA32 into a project.

The code is written, assembled, and linked (we don't use C for the 08's), and then we went to load the firmware into our board with the OSBDM. The debugger that we tried to use, Hiwave.exe from Codewarrior 6.1, did not recognize the PA32. So we downloaded CodeWarrior 11 before the holidays, and we were then side-tracked by more important projects.


We came back to the PA32 project today, but when we tried to start CodeWarrior 11, if refused to start, stating that it has been more than 30 days since installation.


So we have some questions:

1) Is there a file that would allow the CW 6.1 version of Hiwave recognize the PA32? This would be our preferred approach.

2) What do we need to get CW 11 to debug assembly code? Is a license required for that?

3) Are there better third-party debuggers that we could be looking for? We have had awful experiences with Freescale's Eclipse-based IDE's for their DSPs.
