FATAL ERROR 250 (CODE SIZE LIMIT...)
Applies to: L166 Linker/Locator
Information in this article applies to:
I have the full professional version of C166 and yet when I link I
get fatal error 250. What gives? I have tried reinstalling the
software, but it hasn't helped.
There are some problems in the version 4 install program that
may lead to the installation of a "restricted" toolset.
Download the latest updates from http://www.keil.com/update/ but
do not install.
- Completely remove the tools from your computer.
Delete all the files and directories installed (the default is
C:Keil and all its subdirs). It will warn you about "impacting
registered programs"; you may safely disregard this message.
- Run the install program from the CD or from the download.
- Choose "Install Software" not "Install Eval Software".
A little later in the dialog, the install program will ask for
your name and company info, and it'll have another field for serial
number, which will have "Eval Software" in it by default.
Delete the Eval Software serial number and and enter your
serial number, dashes and all, and put the add-on disk into your
- The install should proceed without problems.
When you apply the latest update, you must go through the normal
installation process and enter your serial number.
This process should leave you with a FULL version of the tools,
troubled no longer by the Fatal Error 250.
