QUESTION

I want to upgrade my uVision Version 2 installation to the latest tool version. However, I must be able to use the older uVision installation for rebuilding existing projects. I need to be able to rebuild EXACTLY the same binary for every program I have ever written. Is there a way to move the installation folder of an uVision installation including IDE and debugger?

ANSWER

Yes. You may copy a complete uVision installation to a new folder. uVision does not use folder information from the registry. The only place where folder names are stored is in the PATH variables in ..\TOOLS.INI which is stored relative to the UV2\UV2.EXE program.

Note that the PATH variables in TOOLS.INI specify the default location for the compiler toolchain. In uVision, your project may override this path setting under Project - File Extensions, Books, Environment Setup - Environment Setup.

To move the installation folder of C51 Version 6.10 to the new folder name C:\KEIL610\ you must change the PATH setting in C:\KEIL610\TOOLS.INI. For example:

[UV2]
.
.
.
[C51]
.
.
.
PATH="C:\KEIL610\C51"
.
.
.

To use the Version 6.10 tools, start uVision2 from the C:\KEIL610\UV2 folder.
