Rowley demos incomplete

Trying to evaluate the Rowley tool for FreeRtos development on ARM, but not having much success.

There seem to be some include files missing for the FreeRtos - Rowley demos - lpc21xx.h, lpc2368.h, the Cortex demo  and the uIP demo complain about unspecified linker scripts, and the lwip demo compiles but wont simulate due to unspecified memory simulation file. Do I need to have downloaded specific Rowley packages to make these work?

So far, the Rowley tool seems to have most of the features of the Keil tool, but it does not have the Peripheral register editing dialog that Keil has, and neither tool will let you edit the general registers.

Yes - you need to install packages from the Rowley site for all processor families you want to use.

I think Rowley will let you edit general registers.  I have not looked for peripheral registers.

Thanks, the packages did the trick. I am using the sim only and don’t see a way to edit general regs. Are they editable when you have actual HW? Other tools/sims will let you do this depending on the device - its a nice thing to have along with hw breakpoints, breakpoints on address ranges, memory accesses etc.
