2.2. Starting RealView Debugger after installing other components

If you install additional software components after you have used RealView Debugger, for example, RealView ICE software, then the next time you start RealView Debugger it prompts you to update the settings files.

To start RealView Debugger after installing additional software components:

  1. Start RealView Debugger in the usual way.

    RealView Debugger informs you that it is about to update the configuration files in your default settings directory, shown in Figure 2.1.

  2. Click Yes to update the configuration files, and replace any existing files that exist for previous versions of that component.

    Note

    If you click No, then this prompt is displayed again when you next start RealView Debugger.

    RealView Debugger then prompts you to rebuild the rvdebug.brd file, shown in Figure 2.2.

  3. Click Yes to rebuild the rvdebug.brd file. You must do this if the installed component software is for a new Debug Interface, such as RealView ICE.

    Note

    If you click No, then RealView Debugger is unable to recognize the installed component. Also, this prompt is not displayed again when you next start RealView Debugger.

    RealView Debugger completes the startup procedure.
