12.5.2. Common steps for creating a user-defined project

To create a new user-defined project:

  1. Select Project → New Project... from the default Code window main menu to display the Create New Project dialog box.

  2. Complete the entries in the Create New Project dialog box:

    Project Name

    Enter a name for your project in this data field.

    Check that any name entered here is not already in use for a project. Where a project with the same name already exists, RealView Debugger gives you the option to replace it.

    Project Base

    Specify the project base directory to use as the location of the project files.

    This data field might be preloaded with your RealView Debugger installation directory name as defined by your environment variable. This can be overridden.

    Click the folder icon to view the directory chooser, and select <Select Dir...> to specify a directory that is not in the recently used directory list.

    If the specified directory does not exist, RealView Debugger gives you the option to create it.

    Select Type of Project

    Select the type of project you want to create. For more details about the project types, see Types of user-defined project.

  3. Click OK.


    If you confirm that an existing project is to be overwritten, there is no undo and the contents of the first project settings file are lost.

  4. RealView Debugger displays a dialog box to create the type of project you selected.

    Follow the steps described in the appropriate section to complete the entries:

  5. Click OK to confirm the project details and close the dialog box for your project type.

  6. Make any changes to the project properties to customize the new project. See Customizing and building your project.
