I am using CCS 5.1 with MCSDK 2_00_09_21 on the TMS320C6670L EVM board. The "BCP_testProject" runs on Core #0 but when I load the executable on the other cores it goes directly into the running mode without halting at the main function. When I further try to halt the processor nothing happens. So my question is, can this test routine only be run on Core #0, if not do I have to modify the source code to make it run on other cores than Core #0. I tried setting the constant SYSINIT_CORE on line 142 in test_main.c to the 1,2 or 3 but didnt work. I appreciate any help/support in this issue and thanks in advance!
I'm not familiar with the BCP project per se, but typically this behavior can be changed, by going into the CCS Debug perspective, selecting the core, and then go to 'Tools --> Debugger Options --> Generic Debugger Options.' This will bring up a 'Generic Debugger Options' window. Go to 'Auto Run Options' in this window, and uncheck the box 'On a program load or restart.'

I tried your suggestion. At first an error message that the boot.c file cant be located came up. I added the location to the project and then the core halts at _c_int00 entry point but still i dont have access to the bcp_testProject main why I even cannot see what is not running correctly. If you have the same board handy, could you try to run the test project on other cores?
The earliest I'll be able to give this a shot on the EVM is Wednesday next week.
In the meantime, if anyone else on the community sees this, they can hopefully try it before then.
