Error message-Can not use RESET function-and debug function is disabled_E8a_E8

Last Updated:10/11/2017

Question:

After connecting E8a/E8 and writing a program to the flash memory, I clicked OK in the "Please Restart or Exit" display, but "Can not use RESET function" appears in the output window and the debug function is disabled.

Answer:

Make sure you haven't selected [Program Flash] in the [Emulator Setting] dialog at E8a/E8 start up.
The [Program Flash] mode is for use with a writer (programmer) and does not allow the debug function. In this setting, the [Please Restart or Exit] message is displayed after downloading a program.
To debug, select [Erase Flash and Connect].
