MC56F8300DSK Problem

Started by ev64bug November 3, 2003
Hi,
I'm new to this group. I just recieved the MC56F8300DSK Demo Kit. I
first had the fun of not being able to install the Codewarrior CD on
my XP machine, the install shield kept giving an error, so I
downloaded the file directly from Metrowerks and requested the free
8k permanent license. Codewarrior seems to be real touchy, it runs
very slowly and it only works if I haven't launched any other
applications otherwise it just about freezes up. So even though it
doesn't say that it is Windows 95 compatable I tried installing it on
an older machine and the CD worked without a hitch. Yea.

So here is the question. I was able to start a real simple project
(turn on an LED) and it compiled and linked when I pressed the Debug
button, then it gave and error "CCSProtocolPlugin: CCS: Network fault"

Does anyone know what this error is from?

Do I have to change any settings from the Default to get it to
communicate with the Demo Board?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I am using DSP56858EVM and originally I also got the same error message.  I would keep trying and usually by the third or fourth try it would start working.  Once it started working, I wouldn't have any trouble again for the rest of the day.  The next morning, or any other time that I rebooted, I would get the same message once again.

When you created this project which stationery did you select for
this Demo board? There is a jumper on the board that you need to
enable to use this board. The jumper is 'HOST ENABLE' and needs to
be jumpered in order to connect to the board.

I did set the 'HOST ENABLE' jumper (I got a different error something
about the cable not present until I figure that one out). The
stationery I used was the 'DSP56800x EABI stationery'. I used this
one because it was shown in the exaples on the Motorola Documentation
CD that accompanied the Demo Kit.
Thanks,
Rex

Your suggestion was a good one I have somewhat of a resolution.
First my XP machine doesn't like the Processor Expert it seems to
hang up if I run any application before Code Warrior. So I tried
setting up a new project with Simple C as the setting and then I
went to debug. It still runs extremely slow. It didn't connect the
first time but it got a lot further in that it tried to connect to
the Demo Board. It worked on the second attempt. So I at least made
contact, so I can proceed.
Thanks for your help I will now step back into obscurity and not
take up the user's group bandwidth.....

I filled out a bug report from Metrowerks website and I got a
response back that led me to resolving the problem. CW uses the
LM_LICENSE_FILE system variable but I had a previously installed
program, Viewlogic, that also uses a user variable by that same
name. Viewlogic requires a network license and the computer is not
connected to the license server. So what I think was happening is
that CW was looking for the license server basically hanging up. The
solution was to remove the user variable for Viewlogic. So CW works
blazingly fast and the Processor Expert is also functional.
