QUESTION

I wrote some test programs that run properly using the Evaluation Version. When I re-built those program using my licensed version, they compiled and linked without errors or warnings, but they do not run.

What can cause this?

ANSWER

Improper changes to the scatter file for your project will cause this type of behavior. Scatter file settings aren't used in the Evaluation Version, so any changes you made to the scatter file would have no affect on the "running" version of your program. When you re-built your project with the licensed version, those scatter file changes now take affect. If they are wrong, your program will not load or run properly.

In most cases, it is much easier to let uVision build your scatter files automatically by checking the Use Memory Layout from Target Dialog checkbox in the Options for Target - Linker dialog. Checking this checkbox tells uVision to build a scatter file based on your settings in the Target dialog.
