QUESTION

I have copied the content of the Keil CD-ROM to my hard disk (into the C:KEILDATASHEETS folder), but the uVision IDE still asks for the CD-ROM when I try to open a Device Data Book in the Project Windows - Books tab. How can I tell uVision to use the books on my hard disk?

ANSWER

There are two solutions to this problem.

  1. Within the uVision IDE, you may use Project - Components, Environment, and Books - Books tab to specify the folder for Device-Specific books. Enter the path (C:KEILDATASHEETS) where the data sheets are stored. You may use this dialog to also add additional documents to the books tab. This works on a project-by-project basis.
  2. You may modify the DEVICE_BOOKS entry in KEILTOOLS.INI to include a path to the copy of the CD-ROM. For example:
    [UV2]
    ORGANIZATION=...
    NAME=...
    .
    .
    .
    DEVICE_BOOKS=C:KEILCD 
    

    You may copy the whole Keil CD-ROM to the C:KEILCD folder on your hard drive.
