Codewarrior 6 - Steals the parallel port?

Started by Unknown February 15, 2004
Hi Folks,

I tried posting this from e-mail and it didn't work, so am trying it via the
web site - apologies if it appears twice.

--------\

Anyone had a go with V6 of Codewarrior? I installed the 8k free version
on my
computer and it's completely screwed up my IAR parallel port dongle for
the
MSP430!

You can see now that when the PC boots up it runs this program that
does a
parallel port negotiation which I suspect is taking all of the parallel port
resources and not allowing any other program access to the parallel
port.

I know it's not a problem with the dongle as I've tried it on a different
computer which recognises it [the dongle] no problem.

Has anyone else had any issues with V6 Codewarrior and the parallel
port, and
if so, what did you do to solve it?

Many thanks,

Rob.



I have noticed that using the printer port with the DSP56858EVM does seem to "scramble" the port and/or driver so that itno longer recognizes my printer.  I use a switch box to change connections between the printer and the EVM.  So far, I find rebooting the only way to restore the printer driver to functionality

Thanks for the help, Kenneth, but it's worse than that for me! Even if nothing
is plugged in to the parallel port, the IAR dongle simply won't work any
more.

Maybe I'll have to try uninstalling Codewarrior or maybe reinstalling the IAR
compiler.

Cheers,

Rob.
