There is a problem with the OpenOCD in the latest FreeRTOS version.
The OpenOCD exe’s provided in zip is built for Cygwin.
It does not state in the instructions anywhere that you have to install Cygwin !!
I would not recommend that anybody installs Cygwin unless you have something else that needs it.
I got round this in a pretty simple way. I installed the Official Windows OpenOCD from http://www.yagarto.org/.
This version is build for native win32.
I then deleted the provided openocd.exe and put the Yagarto ones in the same directory. I then renamed the exe’s so they were the same as those in the FreeRTOS zip file.
Now it works
I trust this will be fixed in the next version.
