CodeWarrior 6.3 is for most RS08, S08, ColdFire V1 Processors*

*Not compatibile with (S08: RN, RNA, PA, PT, Kinetis (including Tower), ColdFire V2 ...)

 

This post describes installing CodeWarrior for Microcontrollers (Classic IDE) - RS08/HC(S)08, ColdFire V1 v6.3

on 64-bit modern versions of Microsoft's operating systems e.g. Windows 7, Windows 10, Windows 11. 

 

Some people could argue to use the Eclipse-based CodeWarrior and they have their points (some devices and situations require it). On the other hand Freescale long knew that Eclipse-based CodeWarrior is cumbersome. Here is a great article (now only available by archive since it was deleted) article by James Trudeau (formally of Freescale) about his teams unfinished but thoughtful effort: CodeWarrior 10.3 a new perspective.

Also for those who fondly remember programming Motorola parts with an Metrowerks IDE, give this a shot.

 

Typically you will get the error "CodeWarrior Development Studio for Microcontrollers v6.3 is not compatible with Windows XP 64-bit installations" when trying to install under Windows 7/10/11 x64.

These methods are UNOFFICIAL and are not supported by NXP

– Do not contact NXP support for these methods. 

NEW METHOD - ONE STEP :

UNOFFICIAL community version Special Edition CodeWarrior "6.3.2" 

Download and install here: 

https://www.eecis.udel.edu/~tmcgee/community-projects/freescale/

Includes all updates, fixes, and service packs

  • For P&E Micro - just check the box for the install options - no extra steps needed
  • For USBDM - just check the box for the install options - use the USBDM firmware updater (start menu) if needed 

DONE – NO EXTRA STEPS NEEDED
