I need some help with Code Explorer

Started by kurtc3x May 18, 2006
Hi everyone!

I'm using DSP Starter Kit DSK30. Whenever I try to run Code Explorer
on Windows 95 and after selecting 0x378 as port I/O address in
parallel port setup window, I always get this error message:

"Can't initialize DSP target"
"Failed to load DSK communication kernel"

Can anyone tell me what i'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance.
Kurt

If I remember correctly Code Explorer did not know how to use the
parallel port in 4 bit nibble model (the port must be set for 8 bit
mode), and possibly restricted to ECP or EPP. The DSK debugger will
work in either 4 or 8 bit mode.

Best regards
