DISPLAYING RTX KERNEL VIEWER

Applies to: uVision Debugger

Answer


Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:


SYMPTOM

Attempting to display RTX task information in the debugger (Debug — OS Support — RTX Kernel) causes the debugger to crash.

CAUSE

This will happen if the RTOS1= parameter in the Tools.ini file is not set properly during installation.

RESOLUTION

To correct this, do the following:

  1. Close all instances of uVision.
  2. Using a text editor, open the Tools.ini file located in your installation folder (Default installation folder is: C:\Keil\).
  3. Within the [ARMADS] section, find the line that starts with RTOS1=, and make sure it reads as follows:
    RTOS1=VARTXARM.DLL ("RTX Kernel - Viewer")
    
  4. If there is a [KARM] section, make the same change within that section.
  5. Save the Tools.ini file.
  6. Restart uVision.

STATUS

This will be corrected in the next MDK-ARM release.
