CCS/DRV8881EEVM: drv 8881eevm Software

Part Number: DRV8881EEVM

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio

I bought a EEVM 2 months ago and just can't get it to work since; this despite help from TI engineer. Just cannot install the software. Instruction manual does not help e.g. where it says install from web or install from file, I tried both options separately - no luck. Then when it gives 4 options to check (fig 16) I get only get 3, the last one launch I just don't get. So I end up with the icon on my desktop which doesn't work; when clicked it asks for the exe file and that's the end of it! Does anyone know how this works?

    I use Windows-10. Could that be a problem?

    Hi Ken, 

    Windows 10 should not be a problem. I use windows 10 as well. The %TEMP% would need to be entered in address bar section rather than Search box. I.e. where directory path appears enter %TEMP% then hit enter. Windows will then convert that to an actual path. If system is configured with defaults then it should show a path that looks like C:\Users\YourLoginID\AppData\Local\Temp . However, I have seen this location to be different due to a corporate configuration. See picture below, which also shows the file name that I am looking for. 

    There might be some anti-virus SW that is blocking child installer from running. However, the log should provide a bit more information on this.

    Hi Ken,
    I compared the install log to the one that I have. Yours does not seem to be able to find an existing installation of GC Runtime and file that is passed in (during install from file) seems to be blank. Beyond this, install logs are pretty much the same.

    If you have already downloaded the gcruntime 2.0.6 (exact file name should be gcruntime-2.0.6-windows-installer.exe) and you are specifying in box "Install from file" then I think next step would be another webex session. I can call you if cost is an issue. If you are concerned about sharing a # in public forum then please send a friend request through E2E and we can continue privately.

    Martin
