4.2.2. Opening the RVConfig dialog box — standalone method

You can also open the RVConfig dialog box to configure the run control unit without first having to display the Connect to Target window in RealView Debugger.

To start the RVConfig application:

  1. On Windows, select Start → All Programs → ARM → RealView ICE v3.3 → RealView ICE Configuration.

    On Red Hat Linux, choose the appropriate shortcut. This depends on the version of Red Hat Linux and the desktop environment that you are using. If no desktop shortcut is available, enter the command rviconfig at the command line.

    The RVConfig dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 4.2.

  2. At this point, you can either connect to a RealView ICE unit (see Connecting to a RealView ICE unit) or open a previously-saved file. To open a file, select Open from the File menu. The Choose a file to open dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 4.3.

  3. Browse the list, select the appropriate .rvc file, and click Open. The RVConfig dialog box appears, with the control pane displaying the scan chain controls, as shown in Figure 4.4. For more information on using the scan chain controls, see Configuring a scan chain.

    The title of the dialog box includes the full path to the RealView ICE configuration file. The path name might be different to that shown.


    When you have been working on RVConfig and then select New from the File menu, you are asked to confirm whether you want to save the configuration on which you have been working. If you click Yes, the Choose a filename to save as dialog box displays, then you must enter the details of your .rvc file and click Save.
