[FAQ] CCS/AWR1642BOOST: Cannot load out of box demo from Industrial Toolbox in Resource Explorer

Part Number: AWR1642BOOST

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio

Hello Folks,

sorry to annoy you - I am pulling my hair out over this. I have a fully updated CCS 10 running on my Windows 10 box, and have both Automotive Toolbox - 3.0.0. and Industrial Toolbox - 4.3.1 installed in addition to the mmWave SDK. 

When I pick a sample in the Automotive toolbox, I can import it into my local projects. Sadly, this option is not available for the out of Box Demo projects in the Industrial Toolbox. Strangely, other labs such as ODS CCS can be resusciated (see images).

May I ask why the Out of Box Demo cannot be loaded?

  • HI Tam Hanna,

    Is you objective to load the IWR1643  Out of Box demo binaries and run?

    If yes then you can follow the step #4 onwards (Skip the build steps)  by using the prebuilt binaries as part of the  mmWave SDK. (See the exact version needed)

    Step #4 onwards; http://dev.ti.com/tirex/explore/node?node=AI-oBzu9O7ZD9w8V94SbBw__VLyFKFf__LATEST

    Please let us know how the steps for prebult binary work for you.

    On another note - if you have already tried the AWR1643 version of Out of Box demo  then the results would look identical for the IWR1643 version of Out of box demo as well.

    Thank you,

    Hello,

    thank you so much for your response!

    My main interest is to get the project code loaded in CCS, so that I can look at it and experiment with it. Loading the binary file to the board was not a problem!

    Hi Tam,

    Looking at the issue your reported, we found that:

    1. All the OOB demo projects (except the ODS Point Cloud Demo) in the Industrial Toolbox are not showing the import button as shown below.
    2. We will investigate this issue at our end and fix it in a future TIREX release.
    In the meantime, you should still be able to import the projects in CCS by following the alternate method of manually importing the project by browsing to the Toolbox Download folder in C:\TI as detailed on the following page:

    Thank you for bringing this to our notice. We will investigate and resolve this in future releases.

    Regards

    Hello, 

    thank you for your help. But the process still is not complete. Now, it throws errors during the loading of the project folder - interestingly, the projects do then load into Project Explorer.

    Here is my path:

     

    And here is the error for project one

    And here for two

    Compiling the projects fails like this:

    Buildfile generation error occurred..
    This project does not contain a buildable RTSC Configuration (.cfg) file. In order for it to build, this project must contain one RTSC Configuration file that is not excluded from build.
    Build stopped..

    A clean also reports some missing files...

    Hi Tam,

    It appears that you have not installed MMWAVE-SDK on your computer. 

    Please confirm / make sure that you are following the instructions given in the lab user guide including making sure that you have

    1. The required mmWave SDK installed

    2. Are using the CCS version mentioned in the user guide i.e. CCS 8.3.1

    Regards

    Hello,

    thank you for your response and sorry for being slow in getting back to you.

    A small question: will there be support for CCS10 in the future?

  • In reply to Tam HANNA:

    Hi Tam,

    With the SDK downloaded as required and importing projects from file-system as suggested above, did you try with CCS 10 and see issues? Please try the suggestions above with CCS 10 and reply if you see any problems.

    Thanks
