CCS/TMS320C6414: Using old compiler with CCSv6

Part Number: TMS320C6414

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio

I’d like to use the old code composer compiler/linker version 4.36, from inside the new code composer studio 6.x.  I’m able to load different versions of compiler using a link that you sent me earlier, but it did not list versions this old.  Is there a way to trick the CCS 6.x environment to use the compiler/linker files from this 4.36 version?  I.E. Is there a setup or configuration file that I could edit from one of the newer compiler versions that would allow me to point to this old compiler?

  • To clarify, we'd like to use C6000 compiler/linker versions 4.36 in CCSv6. Our original CCS is pretty old, something like 2.x

  • Hi Brad,

    CCS Eclipse has a limit regarding support for older CGT versions. I don't have the exact details, but it is typically as far back as the CGT version that came in CCSv3.3 (C6000 CGT version 6.0.x). v4.36 is pretty old and I am not surprised that it is not being recognized/detected. The only workaround that you can use is the old technique of replacing the contents of existing cgt folder that comes with CCSv6 with the contents from v4.36. It is quite a hacky solution and will cause issues with the build properties dialog, but it will allow CCS to call the cgt executable for 4.36. 

    Hope this helps


  • Thanks Ki, that was my suspicion, just wanted to make sure.
