ARM7 LPC2368 IAR Com problem

  Today I’ve started experimenting for the first time with FreeRTOS and IAR.

  I have a custom made LPC2368 board with COM port, so I’ve downloaded the LPC2368_IAR_KF port. After uncommenting the “vAltStartComTestTasks” call in main, I get an “The debugging session could not be started. Either the debugger initialization failed, or else the file rtosdemo.out was corrupt or of an unsupported format”.

  Do you have any idea how this should be fixed?

IAR version 4.x and 5.x are quite different. Check the project you are using is for the same version and the IDE you are using.

Dear Dave,

  Thanks for your answer!

  I’m using IAR version 5.20.2. IAR didn’t complain about a wrong version of project file. So, I assume that version 5 is ok?

  Your feedback is appreciated!
