CCS/EK-LM4F232: Compilation is very very slow

Part Number: EK-LM4F232

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio

Hi,

I've tried moving my code from ccs version 4 to ccs version 6.1.1.00022, I've been able to compile here, however it is very slow.

 

I've used this version before and it was OK, in addition my colleague has the same code on the same ccs version and it works fine there.

 

I'm not sure what the issue is, I've tried to turn off my windows defender (don't have another anti virus), tried to remove the metadata folder once tried to reboot my laptop, even tried to remove the ccs and reinstall but I still get the same issue.

 

The problem shouldn't be my laptop details since I have a new laptop with the following:

 

Intel: i7-7500u, 2.7 Ghz.

Ram: 8 GB

64 bit windows 10 OS

 

Any help with this will be very much appreciated

    Roi,

    My first question would be:  is there a reason you need to stay with CCS 6.1.1? That version is now quite old so if updating to the latest CCSv7 is an option for you, I would recommend giving that a try first. If there is a need for you to stay locked into a specific version of the compiler, you can still do that even if you go with a newer version of CCS.

    If you wish to experiment and see if the issue is reproducible with the latest CCS 7.2, you can download it from here, install it to a different directory than your current 6.1.1 installation and give it a try. 

    Let us know if CCSv7 is not an option for you and we will try to see if we can find a solution or workaround for your situation.

    Hi AartiG ,

    In principal I might be able to move to version 7, however I understand that version 7 costs money so I'm not sure I'll get clearance to do that. In any case, since it works with version 6 on my colleagues laptop, I assume it should work fine in this version, correct?

     

    In any case is there any reason to believe that moving to version 7 will solve this? 

     

    In addition, it's not only the compilation that works very slowly, it seems like the IDE itself is sluggish and for some reason the debugger hangs the whole IDE and I'm forced to close the program forcefully.

    Actually there is no longer any cost for CCS licenses. You can simply download CCSv7 and start using it.

    I would imagine so, if you are certain there are no differences in either project settings or build environment.

    I can't be certain, but since we've made a few releases since CCS 6.1.1 and fixed several bugs along the way, there is a fairly good chance the issue no longer exists. And if the issue still persists, we will put the time and resources into investigating and addressing issues in the latest version rather than an old version.

    Just for reference, here a couple of threads related to slow builds in CCSv6.x that have been fixed in newer versions. Your issue may or may not be related to this but I am just providing these as examples of issues we have tracked and fixed in the past.

    Hi AartiG,

    Yesterday evening the ccs miraculously returned to work fast, not really sure why, so for now I'll just leave it, but I'll definitely get back to this if the issue reoccurs.

     

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi AartiG,

    The problem seemed to have miraculously been solved for some time, but for some reason it returned this morning.

     

    Is the version 7 free?

     

    If not, how much would it cost?

     

    In addition is there any other suggestions u might have for me?

     

    much appreciated,

    Roi

    Yes, full CCSv7 licenses are available at no cost, so you can simply download and use CCSv7.
