Why the High-performance Embedded Workshop don't work correctly?

Latest Updated:09/10/2007


[High-performance Embedded Workshop V.4, V.3] I installed the new High-performance Embedded Workshop to my existing environment, after which software programs developed in the existing environment are no longer executed correctly. Why?


Updating the High-performance Embedded Workshop does not make changes to the toolchains (Compiler, Assembler, Linker) or their options.
In this case, there's no change to the load module file, so the software program should run as before.

The cause of this problem may be due to one of the following operations. These operations make changes to the toolchains and the load module file, thus modifying the behavior of the software program as well.
Have you ever performed any of the following operations?

  1. Opened the workspace and then changed the toolchain version by selecting
    [Tools]->[Change Toolchain Version] menu.
  2. When using H8C/C++ compiler package V.5.0.03 or V.5.0.04, installed (updated) H8C/C++ compiler package V.5.0.05 or V.5.0.06.
  3. When using SHC/C++ compiler package V.7.1.02 or V.7.1.03, installed (updated) SHC/C++ compiler package V.7.1.04 or V.7.1.05.

In such cases, please refer to the documents below.

    [Notes on Version Upgrade] Section.
    (Invoke the "Manual Navigator" in the same Windows Start Menu where the High-performance Embedded Workshop start menu is located.)
