Error Messages

In the majority of cases an error occurs when you start a debugger session. If an error occurs it is always a good idea to unplug the usb connection and then to plug it in again. This resets the debugger.

Q3: If I want to launch a debugging session and then the following message appears on the screen. What’s wrong?

[language error]

A3: The debugger wasn’t able to connect to the CARME-Kit. This occures because of a slow network connection or because of weak Computer performance. You can set the timeout- (default 5s) to a higher value to solve the problem (red box in the picture below).

Q4: If I want to launch a program the following error message appears. I was able to launch a session before. What happened?

[language error]

A4: The arm-elf-gcc - debugger is not responding and you will have to stop it manually. Press Crtl-Alt-Del, click on „Task Manager“ and now choose the tab „processes“. Select the process „arm-elf-gcc.exe“ and click on the button „End Process“.

Q5: If I try to launch a debugging session the following error message appears.

[language error]

A5: The CARME-Kit has an internal debugger (connected with USB) and a JTAG interface. There is a switch (USB<JTAG>DIR red box in picture below) which selects the debugger interface. This Switch must be set to the left hand side (for internal debugger).
