QUESTION

I'm using an old MAKE batch file to generate my application. I have an application program (VAREXT.EXE) that I use to automatically generate some include files. How can I integrate this into the µVision build process?

My old batch file is as follows:

a51 mdef.a51 object (mdef.obj) debug
varext.exe
c51 mproc.c
BL51 MDEF.OBJ,MPROC.OBJ

ANSWER

  1. Create a project in uVision.
  2. Add your assembler program to the project.
  3. Add the VAREXT.EXE program as file type 'custom file' to your project (the same way as an assembler source file).
  4. Right click on the VAREXT.EXE file (in the project window) and Open the Options - Properties dialog.
  5. Under custom arguments, you need to enter the executable program VAREXT.EXE again.
