DRV8308EVM: Software does not install

Part Number: DRV8308EVM

All done as administrator on a Win 10 machine.

First, when installing (from slvc552f.zip) , installer complains that no valid "GUI Composer Runtime" is available.  I tried the choice to download from web, and get "Warning: There was an error downloading the file." (this happens repeatedly, so not a one-time thing).  So then, I tried to find a file for the "GUI Composer Runtime", so I could try the install from file option.  I ended up downloading and installing GUI Composer Runtime 6.2.0.1 (CCS v6.2.0).  Then I went back to the EVM code install, and nothing had changed -- it still says no valid runtime is available.  Then, I noticed that there is an entry for DRV8303 in the TI start menu!  When I click on it, I get "Windows is searching for nw.exe.  To locate the file yourself, click Browse.  There seems to be no "nw.exe" file on my machine, whatever that cryptic name might reference.  Any idea what I should try next???

  • Hugh,

    Thanks for posting on the MD forum! Sorry to hear about your difficulties.

    Have you tried the online version of the GUI? It may help overcome some of the installation issues which can occur on some systems with unique firewalls, antivirus, administrator privilages, etc.

    Please try it here: https://dev.ti.com/gallery/view/4993501/DRV8308_EVM/ver/1.0.1/

    Regards,
