How to repair MCUXpresso Config Tools?

I installed the new v7.0.1 parallel to v7.0 today (different folder).


I opened an existing MEX file by doulbe clicking and everything worked fine. The MEX file is for a XIP project in IAR.


After changing the configuration in IAR (from XIP-debug to SDRAM-debug) and running it on the development board I switched back to MCUXpresso Config Tools to change clock settings (the tool was open the whole time) and after clicking the "Update Code" button it showed that the DCD files are not included in the project anymore (which is true because of the change to SDRAM debug) and it is going to delete the DCD files. I removed the checkbox next to the DCD files because I wanted to keep them for later changing back to XIP-debug and clicked update.


The tool still deleted the DCD files. Now it often hangs for quite a long time after clicking Update Code before it opens the change-window where it only shows "?" for a lot of fields.

Closing the file and opening the tool again helped but the error came again later.


I attached the error log (from today, without paths) and the MEX file to this post.


Do I have to change anything to fix this issue?


Kind regards,





It just happened again. The window looks like the following:
