General Information

CCSv8.x.0 uses an unmodified Eclipse Version 4.7 and CDT 9.3.
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_v8

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_8.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_8.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_CCSv8

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_8.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_8.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://software-dl.ti.com/ccs/esd/documents/ccsv8_linux_host_support.html

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_8.x.x.xxxxx_linux-x64.tar.gz or CCS_8.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_8.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>/ccsv8/install_scripts.
5. As root, execute script "install_drivers.sh".

To install all of Code Composer Studio as root:

1. Run ccs_setup_8.x.x.xxxxx.bin as root.
2. Choose where you want to install.
3. Select the components you wish to install.
