Thanks very much for the warning, Wim, this could have bit us rather badly!

I am on vacation until January 2, 2003, so everyone have a very Merry Christmas,
and a Happy New Year!

Subject: [motoroladsp] DO NOT install Codewarrior for DSP 56800 5.0.3
Patch before reading this E-mail
Importance: High Dear Metrowarrior DSP56800 users,

Wait a moment before installing Codewarrior 5.0.3
There is a new bug in Codewarrior 5.0.3 for DSP56800
When you install the update 5.0.3 your license.dat file is deleted (without
any warning)
Your license is overwritten by the "default not-working" license.dat file
(looks like a virus eating your license)
If you then try to compile with the new version, you get the message, that
there is no valid license on your system

Workaround:
Before installing update 5.0.3 copy the file license.dat (f.e. C:\Program
Files\Metrowerks\Codewarrior\license.dat or where you installed Codewarrior)
to a safe directory on your disk or floppy (some directory not used by
Codewarrior)
Then install update 5.0.3
Then copy your original license.dat (from your safe directory) to
Codewarrior directory (overwrite: yes)
Now you can use update 5.0.3

Success!

WB1-39809 The compiler uses the RTS instead of RTI instruction for an
