My project seems to build perfectly, the only problem is that the HEX file is not created. What am I doing wrong?
A possible cause of this is if your program utilizes addresses over 1Mb. For example, if you have a very large array (70,000 bytes) located in XCONST memory starting at 100000H, then you will start using addresses over 1Mb.
The Intel HEX-86 file format cannot handle addresses this large, so the HEX file is not created.
Make sure that you have selected to create an Intel HEX file in the Project Make Options.
Configure your project so that an Intel HEX-386 file is created instead. This is an extended HEX file format that can handle the large addresses.
You can then rebuild your project to create the HEX file.
