For additional information and support, please go to: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Category:Code_Composer_Studio_v7

Installation:

Please note that use of anti-virus software or a firewall may cause issues during installation.
McAfee software in particular has been especially troublesome.
If possible, disable anti-virus and firewall software during installation.
If not, use of the Offline Installer is strongly recommended.

On Windows:

If you are using an Offline CCS Installer, the zip file in which it is
distributed must first be extracted:

1. Right-click on CCS_7.x.x.xxxxx_win32.zip and select "Extract All...".
2. Enter the directory where you wish to extract the files.
3. Click on Extract.

Once extraction has successfully completed, proceed with the installation steps below.

To install Code Composer Studio:

1. Run ccs_setup_7.x.x.xxxxx.exe.
2. Choose where you want to install.
3. Select the components you wish to install.

On OS X:

If you are using an Offline CCS Installer, the zip file in which it is
distributed must first be extracted:

1. Right-click on CCS_7.x.x.xxxxx_osx.zip and select "Open”.  This will extract the directory from the zip file..

Once extraction has successfully completed, proceed with the installation steps below.

To install Code Composer Studio:

2. Choose where you want to install.
3. Select the components you wish to install.

On Linux:

Please visit http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Linux_Host_Support_CCSv7

 before installing CCS on Linux. It contains important information on
installing CCS on different Linux distributions, including CCS dependencies that may need to be installed first.

Before installing CCS, the tarball file in which the CCS Installer is distributed must first be extracted:

untar CCS_7.x.x.xxxxx_linux-x64.tar.gz or CCS_7.x.x.xxxxx_web_linux-x64.tar.gz and extract all files.

If installing from DVD, you also need to either mount the DVD with execute permissions first, or copy the files off the DVD to a local drive and change permissions there to run the installer.

Once extraction has successfully completed, proceed with the installation steps below.

Note: To facilitate the installation of emulation drivers, it is necessary to run part of the installation process as root.
You may if you wish install all of CCS as root. However, it is preferred that you first install CCS as a normal user and then install the drivers as root.

ReleaseNotes

CCDSK-2103

[Eclipse] Project import errors should be formatted to the size of the message box

Declined

Minor

CCDSK

CCS 6.2.0, CCS 6.1.3

CCS 7.0.0

Frequently when errors occur during the process of importing projects into CCS, the error message is too wide to fit in the error message box




SDSCM00039329

Profiling help topic is missing screen captures

Declined

Minor

DVT

CCS 4.2.1

7.0.0

When you open the help for profiling it has some red X's where the help references a screen capture but the screen capture is missing.

There is one in function profiling and one in code coverage.

CCBT-1969

SW breakpoints set in assembly source are set in two memory locations

Fixed

Major

CCBT

6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

When setting SW breakpoints from the Editor view in an assembly source file built with GCC, the debugger inadvertently sets breakpoints at two non-contiguous locations.



This happens with CCSv6.2.0 and any Cortex A project that uses the standard startup .S files.



Several settings were changed in an attempt to solve this:

â—¾surround the functions in the .S file with the .func/.endfunc pair;

â—¾declare the labels as .global

â—¾pass the parameter --gdwarf2 to the assembler

CCBT-1971

Debugger loses line debugging and stack frame with GCC assembly code

Fixed

Major

CCBT

6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

When debugging an assembly file built with GCC, the debugger is unable to perform line-by-line source code correlation with assembly source files. It also loses the initial entry point information.



This happens with CCSv6.2.0 and any Cortex A project that uses the standard startup .S files.



Several settings were changed in an attempt to solve this:

â—¾surround the functions in the .S file with the .func/.endfunc pair;

â—¾declare the labels as .global

â—¾pass the parameter --gdwarf2 to the assembler

CCBT-1994

CCS gives "no source" error when stepping to an assembly source line after a label in the source file

Fixed

Minor

CCBT

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

CCS gives "no source" error when stepping to an assembly source line after a label in the assembly source file. When stepping again, then assembly source code is seen again. But the problem repeats with every label coming up with single stepping (or putting a breakpoint) in the same file.

CCBT-1996

Incorrect links in DSS GettingStarted.htm file

Fixed

Minor

CCBT

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

The GettingStarted.htm file for DSS has some invalid links.



-Debug Server Scripting Mediawiki points to the old tiexpressdsp link. It needs to be updated to the processors.wiki.ti.com location: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/Debug_Server_Scripting



-The Release Notes link points to an invalid location. There is no such file there.

CCDSK-2051

In Linux, chromium browser should open PDF internally

Fixed

Major

CCDSK

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0





In Linux, whenever a PDF is selected on the internal Chromium browser, a message box is opened asking to save the file to disk.



The file should be opened in the browser itself in a preview mode.



This happens with CCSv6.1.3 and CCSv6.2.0 64bits

CCDSK-2104

Project import wizard should not leave failed attempts in the workspace

Fixed

Major

CCDSK

CCS 6.2.0, CCS 6.1.3

CCS 7.0.0

Whenever the Project Import wizard is used but a failure occurs, the project fragments are left in the workspace. "Copy to workspace" must be enabled.



This prevents re-importing the project when the failure root cause is solved, forcing the user to manually delete the fragments from the workspace directory via other means.

CCDSK-2194

Help content for "Saving and Loading Memory Data Files" is out of date

Fixed

Minor

CCDSK

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

The dialogs for saving and loading have changed over the years and the screen captures in the help no longer match the actual product.

CCDSK-2195

Help should mention that address values are not copied

Fixed

Minor

CCDSK

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

When you copy content from the memory browser to the clipboard it only copies the values and not the addresses or symbols, even if you have them selected and choose selected cells.



The help should state this. Currently it states "Copies the selected cells are all visible cells to the system clipboard" Need a second sentence that says "Does not copy addresses or symbols, even if selected." Now that may to change if we change how the view works.

CCDSK-2202

kernel usb rules for msp430 are not installed

Fixed

Major

CCDSK

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

 

CCDSK-2246

GCC projects are passing invalid options to linker

Fixed

Major

CCDSK

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

The project builder of a GCC-based project is passing the -mfpu, -mcpu and -march compiler options to the linker phase, but this is confusing the automatic library selection mechanism to properly index the GCC runtime libraries and causes the build to fail.



This works fine with CCSv6.1.3.

CCDSK-2349

Add option to include addresses when saving memory to clipboard

Fixed

Minor

CCDSK

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

The basic idea behind the request is to be able to save off memory but include the address info as well. Today when we save memory either via the save memory dialog or copying to clipboard we do not include the address

CCSIDE-2878

Enabling parallel build on MacOS results in "fcntl(): Bad file descriptor" message

Fixed

Major

CCSIDE

CCS 6.1.3

CCS 7.0.0

When parallel build option is enabled, building projects on MacOS results in the message "fcntl(): Bad file descriptor" for each invocation of the compiler or linker. This does not interfere with the build process itself which should complete as expected.

CCSIDE-2905

Head-less project import command should fail if specified workspace folder is in use

Fixed

Minor

CCSIDE

CCS 6.1.3

CCS 7.0.0

Head-less project import command should fail if specified workspace folder is in use. Currently it allows the import, causing workspace sync issues if the workspace is being used by a running instance of CCS.

CCSIDE-2919

"null argument" error occurs when trying to link source files to TI_PDK_INSTALL_DIR variable

Fixed

Major

CCSIDE

CCS 6.1.3

CCS 7.0.0

TI_PDK_INSTALL_DIR is a build variable that is picked up from the AM335 PDK and used by RTSC projects. It will show up under the list of System Build Variables in the project properties. When linking source files to the project, that variable is in the drop down list of available variables to use for the link. But when it is actually selected for use, a "null argument" error occurs.

CCSIDE-2922

NullPointerException error when switching between build configurations for a project with out file generated outside project

Fixed

Major

CCSIDE

CCS 6.1.3

CCS 7.0.0





NullPointerException error when switching between build configurations for a project with out file generated outside project folder.



Steps to reproduce

1. Take a CCS project and generate the .out file in a place outside of the project.

2. Add a second build configuration to that project with a different .out target name (or directory)

3. Build that configuration and let it complete

4. Go back and build the first configuration (click the hammer icon dropdown and select the first configuration)

5. Error pops up.

CCSIDE-2931

CCS fails to open a workspace after a failed attempt at opening a large file in editor

Fixed

Minor

CCSIDE

6.1.3

CCS 7.0.0





When opening a large file on the editor that causes a JVM heap exhaustion, CCS has a tendency to corrupt the workspace given that it will attempt to open the failed file after restart.



This request then is to improve the robustness of CCS after failed attempts at opening large files (or any JVM errors for that matter).

CCSIDE-2937

[CDT] CCS generates "Invalid project path" warning for a new empty MSP430 project created for GNU compiler

Fixed

Major

CCSIDE

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

CCS generates "Invalid project path" warning for a new empty MSP430 project created for GNU compiler.

CCSIDE-2938

.ccsproject gets modified with the <origin value> tag even for projects not copied into the workspace

Fixed

Major

CCSIDE

CCS 6.1.3

CCS 6.2.0, CCS 7.0.0

In some cases, the .ccsproject can get modified with the <origin value> tag even for projects not copied into the workspace. The <origin value> tag should only be applied for projects copied into the workspace. This can impact project checked into version control.

CCSIDE-2947

Full build always triggered for BIOS5 projects that have a post build step

Fixed

Minor

CCSIDE

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

Having a post-build step with a BIOS5 project causes the *.tcf file to always be recompiled, breaking the incremental build.

CCSIDE-2966

MMU page table DSS APIs are broken

Fixed

Major

CCSIDE

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

The ptvLookupAddress / ptvReverseLookup / ptvReverseLookupAll cannot read the translated addresses on Cortex-A devices - they always return:



Physical Address = Not mapped



A thorough description is shown in the attached forum thread.



This issue was reported starting with CCSv6.1.3 and also affects CCSv6.2.0. It does not happen with CCSv6.1.1. All OSes are affected.



This does not seem to be an issue with emupack, given CCSv6.1.1 works with the latest version of this component as well.

CCSIDE-2988

Changing compiler version from one GNU version to another changes the RTSC Target from gnu to ti

Fixed

Major

CCSIDE

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

If a SYS/BIOS project is set for a certain version of GNU compiler during import and the compiler version is then changed to another GNU compiler, then the RTSC Target incorrectly changes from gnu.targets.arm.A15F to ti.targets.arm.elf.A8Fnv, causing the build to break.

CCSIDE-2992

The project wizard for C66x (Keystone I) platforms shows an ARM core

Fixed

Major

CCSIDE

6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

When using the Project Wizard to create a new project for the C6678 device family, a Cortex A core tab shows up as an option to create a new project.

CCDSK-2188

Emulation driver install scripts failing to restart udev on CentOS 7

Open

Major

CCDSK

CCS 6.2.0

CCS 7.0.0

The XDS100, MSP430, Blackhawk, and Spectrum Digital Emulation driver install scripts all fail to restart udev on CentOS 7 with the following error:



Redirecting to /bin/systemctl restart  udev.service

Failed to restart udev.service: Unit udev.service failed to load: No such file or directory.

ERROR: failed to restart udev, reboot required



This appears to be due to /sbin/start_udev no longer existing on CentOS 7, and

systemctl restart systemd-udevd instead being required.

In Linux, chromium browser should open PDF internally

6.2 will use xulrunner as the browser engine by default on linux. In order to get inplace viewing of pdf files to work, the following steps are required :

Install acrobat reader : follow instructions at the link http://askubuntu.com/questions/89127/how-do-i-install-adobe-acrobat-reader-deb-package-downloaded-from-adobe-website

then create a directory in CCSInstallDir/ccsv6/eclipse/xulrunner called "plugins"

then copy nppdf.so file, which should be located in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins to above created directory (i.e. it should be in CCSInstallDir/ccsv6/eclipse/xulrunner/plugins)

Note that the above workaround is not confirmed on all Linux environments.
