CCS Path Variable Disappears

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: C2000WARE

I am using CCS 10.2. I would like to add a path variable to C:\ti\c2000\C2000Ware_3_04_00_00\libraries and also make it portable when C2000Ware is updated.

I added the following Path Variable...


...then click Apply and Close.

If I come back to the same dialogue, my new Path Variable has disappeared. Does anybody know the reason please?

    I guess COM_TI is a reserved prefix, but why?

  • Hi Kier,

    The COM_TI prefix is auto generated and maintained by CCS whenever a new package is detected. So if you have C2000Ware or related SDKs installed you should see that the path to those auto recognized products should be visible in the project properties under General -> Products. The products included for the project will be auto managed by CCS and use the product located in directory discovered for CCS. 

    So in order to future proof your application, you will want to define your path variable using an existing variable. For the variable name I would suggest not prefixing it with COM_TI. That way when a new product is installed you can go to the project products tab and select the new package. This will change the references automatically in the project.

    All installed Products can be viewed at  Windows -> Preference -> Code Composer Studio -> Products. I believe the COM_TI path variables
