General Information

CCSv7.4.0 uses an unmodified Eclipse Version 4.6 and CDT 9.0.
They are packaged together under “Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers” package available from
www.eclipse.org. Additional plug-ins or 3rd party tools may be installed that are compatible with Indigo release.

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:

Please visit
http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/MacOS_Host_Support_CCSv7

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:

1. Run ccs_setup_7.x.x.xxxxx by clicking on the application in the Finder
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.

To install Code Composer Studio as a normal user and emulation drivers as root:

1. Run ccs_setup_7.x.x.xxxxx.bin as a normal user.
2. Choose where you want to install.
3. Select the components you wish to install.
4. Navigate to directory <Install-Folder>/ccsv6/install_scripts.
5. As root, execute script "install_drivers.sh".

To install all of Code Composer Studio as root:

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

CCSIDE-3131

CCS Linux compatibility issues with glibc-2.25

Duplicate

Minor

CCSIDE

CCS_7.1.0

CCS_7.4.0

CCS 7.3.0 (and earlier) will not install on Ubuntu 17.10 or other distributions that ship with GLIBC 2.25 (and greater) due to an incompatibility between the installer packaging software (Install Builder)  and the newer GLIBC library. CCS 7.4.0 will be built with the new Install Builder software that resolves the incompatibility and will support the newer GLIBC.

 

CCSIDE-3114

Mouse scroll fails to properly work on the Memory Browser view

Fixed

Minor

CCSIDE

CCS_7.1.0

CCS_7.4.0

When using the Memory Browser view on CCSv7.1.0.00016 on Linux, the mouse scroll button only works once or twice on this view. After that it stops working until either the address is updated or a PgUp/PgDown is pressed - only to work once or twice again.



This issue happens in valid memory regions, thus it is not originated in hardware.



On the other hand, the Disassembly view operates normally.

XDS110 add support for ARM7 and for ARM9 cores

Fixed

Major

DBGTRC

EMU17_M07

EMU17_M11

XDS110 does not support adaptive clocking, which has been causing instability problems for the still popular UCD31x and OMAPL13x devices (ARM7 and ARM9 based devices).



The old trick of severely reducing the TCLK speed, while allowing for the device to properly connect, turns the experience very negative due to instability (this was reported by a few customers and internal TIers), especially if the device's PLL is modified.



Therefore, to prevent the frustration, the idea is to filter out these cores on the connection XML file when a XDS110 is used.

N/A. Use a different JTAG debugger

Mixed ARM/Thumb disassembly style is unable to detect Cortex A mode

Fixed

CCS_7.4.0

This is a Linux host issue; Windows works fine.

Whenever connecting to a Cortex A core, the default mode of the disassembly style is Mixed ARM/Thumb. However, this mode fails to detect the core is in Thumb mode and displays ARM opcodes.

Any attempts to change the Disassembly style via right-click are fruitless.

The only way to enable Thumb is to force it via the Debug Configurations option (menu Tools --> Debugger Options --> Cortex A Disassembly Style Options)

[Eclipse] CCS does not properly pick up changes made to .project from outside the workspace

CCS 6.2.0

CCS_7.2.0

CCS does not properly pick up changes made to .project from outside the workspace. Example is if a project is in source control and two people have it imported into their local CCS workspace. One person deletes a file (removes a link) and checks the project back in. The other person syncs the project and picks up the changes and then when opening CCS, the Project Explorer still shows the other "deleted" file as a broken link.

The issue can be resolved by closing and re-opening the project.  Or by removing the project from the worskspace and reimporting it.

Description:

This issue is related to the fact that we close the trace viewer when you terminate a debug session. If the trace viewer is the only view open in the editor area and then you close and open CCS then you lose the editor area. If you try to open a source file it doesn't show up.

Request to modify the text in the error dialog that appears during project import when compiler definition is not available

Minor

CCSIDE

CCS_7.2.0

Currently when a project import fails, the error dialog that pops up contains text similar to this:

Error: Import failed for project 'abc' because its compiler definition is not available.
Please install the MSP430v16.9 compiler before importing this project - click
'View > CCS App Center' to check if compiler updates are available, or install the compiler manually and register it with CCS through 'Windows > Preferences > CCS > Build > Compilers'.

It is possible that the compiler version the user needs is not necessarily the latest one that is available on CCS App Center. In addition, the CCS App Center does not display the version number before install so they can't be sure they are getting the required version. It would be better to tell them how to install it through the Help->Install New Software menu since most versions are available there.

Proposal for the text:

Error: Import failed for project 'abc' because its compiler definition is not available.
Please install the MSP430v16.9 compiler before importing this project.
The compiler can be installed in one of the following ways:

    menu 'Help >Install New Software >Code Generation Tools Updates', select 'Code Generation Tools Updates' software site, then TI Compiler Updates and browse for the required version"
    install the compiler manually from this link (http://software-dl.ti.com/codegen/non-esd/downloads/index.htm) and register it with CCS through 'Windows > Preferences > CCS > Build > Compilers'.

When doing multiple, simultaneous command-line builds that rely on an discovered component (ex. TI-RTOS), often one of the builds will fail with the below error:

"Product 'TI-RTOS for TivaC' v2.16.1.14 is not currently installed and no compatible version is available. Please install this product or a compatible version."

This is despite that the product is discovered and installed by CCS. When the same project/configuration is built on its own, it will build successfully. It is only for cases were there are multiple, simultaneous command-line builds of the project - at least 3 concurrent builds or more.

Just reporting this here for future reference.
As per development team comment:
"We added a feature a while ago to avoid data intensive DVT features (e.g. trace) using up all disk storage and locking-up user’s machine.
If freespace on disk is less that some number (I believe 4GB) then DVT will stop logging data to disk. The check is done frequently enough to handle high data rates. We can look to see if there are ways to do this and avoid the security log but will have to be post CCS6.2 (unless this is production stop)."

When attempting to import an older project (designed for CCSv5.5) using the Project import menu, CCSv7.x releases fail with a very scarce error message (check the attached screenshot).



CCSv6.x releases do not fail.



After the project import fails, the project is left in the workspace but the right-click options tend to disappear completely from the menu. This may be an issue with my PC, but I thought it would be interesting to mention.

EMU17_M02

When installing CCS as user in Linux, the installer requests a user to run the install_drivers.sh script as sudo at the end of the install.

However, when doing this on a Ubuntu machine the error message below is shown:

/home/user/ti/ccsv7/install_scripts/ti_xds100_linux_install.sh: line 41: [: too many arguments

Uninstalling /etc/udev/rules.d/71-ti-permissions.rules

TI XDS100 installation completed successfully. Some versions of Linux

require a reboot in order for the driver to function properly. For other

versions restarting udev is sufficient. Restarting udev now ...

ERROR: failed to restart udev, reboot required

udev stop/waiting

udev start/running, process 13432

The first error "[: too many arguments" happens in the script ti_xds100_linux_install.sh and, according to the reference below, it should have double-quotes surrounding the assertive $

{RESTARTUDEV} at line 41.

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13781216/bash-meaning-of-too-many-arguments-error-from-if-square-brackets



The second error "systemctl: command not found" is caused by the fact that ${RESTARTUDEV}

does not exist in the first place. It needs to be surrounded by similar if/then clauses shown at lines 36/41.

The third error is that the expression inside the if clause in both lines 36 and 41 yield the same logical result. A differentiation between CentOS 7 and System V should be done no errors are thrown.

Run the udev restart command manually after running the install_scripts.sh

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)

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

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.

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.

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.
