I installed FreedomStudio on my WIN7 machine using all the available help including the long directory name instructions. I loaded the ‘Hello’ project and had no trouble compiling and producing a HEX file. I was also able to drag the HEX file to the drive window for the HiFive board and it connected and programmed the board.
The problem only has to do with trying to operate or setup the debugger. If I go to the ‘Debug Configurations’ window, select the ‘SiFive GDB SEGGER J-Link Debugging’ option , and then click the ‘New Launch Configuration’ button, then FreedomStudio locks up. At that point I have to kill it in task manager. And since there aren’t any debug configurations showing in the project, of course FreedomStudio locks up when trying to run the debugger.
It feels like a setup problem but I’m not sure where to look. Any help would be appreciated.
