CodeWarrior can overwrite source files with certain file extensions

Applies to: RealView Development Suite (RVDS)

Answer

CodeWarrior in RVDS 2.2 SP1 has a problem where it overwrites source files with certain file extensions.

Example:

A source file with a .C (capital C) or .cc (lower case cc) will result in these sources files being overwritten.

The following is a list of extensions that will be handled correctly.

.c .cp .cpp .c++
.tc .tcpp .ac .acpp
.h .hpp
.s
.inc

The two different workarounds for this issue are:

  1. Rename your source files with one of the valid file extensions given above, or
  2. Replace all six of the dlls that are present at the following location in a default installation with the ones available from the downloads pages of the ARM website.

The six dlls are:
