Compiler definition is not available
I am trying to import a CCS4 project into CCS5 and the error below comes up
Error: Import failed for project -compiler definition is not available
Any suggestion on how to fix this? I am using Stellaris ARM and it looks like the compiler is listed in window/ preferences/ build/compiler Discovered tools - tms470
when you installed CCSv5 - did you install Stellaris support|? what version of v5 are we talking about? What OS?
This message seems to indicate it can't find the compiler tools.
What do you see if you go to Window->Preferences->Code Composer Studio->Build->Code generation tools?
what if you try pointing CCSv5 to the compiler version from CCSv4?
Please keep us informed.
Yes I installed Stellaris support. I think that is the only option I choose. Version 5.1.1.00031
2nd attempt to paste
how did you attempt to import the project? Did you go to Project->Import existing CCS/Eclipse Project? What version compilers do you have in v4 and v5? Did you try pointing v5 to the v4 compiler version as I suggested?
Yes Project, Import Existing CCS/Eclipse Project. I also added my old compiler to version 5 see below. Old CCS version is 4.2.1.00004
Version 5 below:
when do you get the error? Do you still get the error? Would you be willing to send the project offline? It seems your compiler tools are correctly installed ...
I still get the error. I have run many versions of CCS4 with no problem. I did run an early version of CCS 5. Maybe this was not fully uninstalled?
possibly, you could try reinstalling the latest release into a different directory. But what import steps did you take? What I mean more is .. when exactly does this error occur? Screenshot? Any error logs? If you wish to send your project offline, we can try to reproduce the issue here.
I installed CCS5 on my notebook computer and I receive the same error, See Screenshot. What files do you need for a project?
what exact example or project are you trying to import? Could you send the project offline (friend or conversation request) Is it a C6000/DSP project? If so, you have no C6000 support installed. Rerunning the installer will let you add this.
You could give that a try in the mean time.
My projects are Stellaris ARM. What files do you need, I prefer not to send all of my source files
Hi Paul, before we do that there is one thing I just noticed.
I think the problem is that you are using the wrong import utility.
Please create a fresh workspace and make sure to import with Project->Import existing CCS/Eclipse Project ..
Same results, see below. I was able to create a new project and compile the code
so is everything imported and building fine now? The above looks much better as far as an import.
