  • [SOLVED] J-Link Dave 4 Win 10 crashed Driver

    Hello, I am sorry in advance for my poor skills, I just started programming microcontroller for university matter. In fact I am about to ride a paper for an example experiment within a course. Therefore I need to (already prepared hardware by my supervisor) use an XMC 4500 Relax (Lite) Kit of Infineon and I am using also DAVE 4 V6 with J-Link on Win 10 Pro N 64-Bit.

    As I said I dont know much about yet, but thats why I choose this topic. However I dont want to get just a solution, but also an understanding why my problem is appearing, if possible.

    The Debugger wont work properly (according to my supervisor), but he is convinced, the problem is upt to my OS. So he suggested using another Os (such as Win 7 with Virtual Box for example). Anyhow I tried this and it actually did work. But it would be easier to use the Debugger on my primary OS so I thought somebody is able to help me or give some advise where/how to look for solutions.

    The PNG shows what exactly is happening when debug project for the first time. I also qouted the Console output.

  • Hi,

    first of all: In order to get you up and running asap, I would recommend to give Ozone a try. Its a standalone debugger which just needs an ELF file in order to setup a debug session with J-Link.

    Regarding W10 not working and W7 working:
    My first guess is that the W7 machine is running an up-to-date version of the J-Link software & documentation pack , which fixes some bugs in J-Link GDB Server.

    If the issue persists when using the most recent version of the J-Link software, could you please provide us with J-Link logfiles from both a failed and a working debugging session?
    (Please attach the unedited logs as a textfile to a post)
    Log output can be enabled like as follows:
    • Open a connection to J-Link, e.g start J-Link Commander
    • In J-Link Control Panel: (Click the J-Link symbol located in the notification / tray area in order to open J-Link Control panel)
    • Open the tab "Settings"
    • Next to the field "Log file" check "Override" and click "..." in order to choose a log file path.

    This is also described in UM8001 Chapter 5 "Working with J-Link and J-Trace", Section 5.7 "J-Link control panel" .

    Best regards,
    Niklas

  • Hi,


    sorry, but I do not understand these log files.
    1) The Windows 7 log just says that it could not connect to a J-Link via USB (mostly likely due to that none is connected to the PC). I thought that it supposed to work in Win 7?
    2) The Windows 10 log looks fine but than immediately stops all of the sudden as if the caller crashed or sth. like that.


    In order to narrow down the list of possible causes of this issue:
    Could you please give J-Link Commander a try?

    • Start J-Link Commander (jlink.exe)
    • Type "connect" in order to start a debug session
    • Type in the target device name if asked (Or type "?" for a target selection Dialog)
    • Choose the correct target interface (JTAG/SWD/etc..)
    • Use a valid speed (Default: 4000kHz, try 100-500 if default does not work)
    • [JTAG only]JTAG conf can be default(most of the times)
    • You should now be successfully connected.
    • It is now possible to program a binary file(.bin/.mot/.srec/.hex etc.) via the >loadfile< command
    • The commands >r<, >g<, >h<, >s< can be used for reset, go, halt and step.
    • Breakpoints can be set by using the >setbp< command.
    If anything fails, could you please post a screenshot and a logfile of the complete session?


    Best regards,
    Niklas

  • Hello Again. My bad...dont know what went wrong with the win7-logfile...

    There are to different now (both worked I guess, I even could control the LED via hterm as plannend), i created just now. And also another WIN 10 logfile, if necessary (but it looks like the same, should i worry about the "old firmware"?)

    I will try to do what you asked for...even i am not sure, what exactly you mean by complete session.

  • Hi,

    I will try to do what you asked for

    Thanks! It sounds like more work than it is, should be doable in <5 minutes.
    even i am not sure, what exactly you mean by complete session.

    J-Link Commander is a console application. Therefore, by complete session I mean everything that has been printed into the console window since the start of the session :)

  • I am propably doing something wrong (not a 100 percent sure, what i am doing exactly, but

    J-Link>loadfile 04_brightness.hex C:\Users\...\04_brightness\Debug
    Downloading file [04_brightness.hex]...
    Failed to open file.
    J-Link>
    does not work. Properly an syntax error or I am using the wrong adress...

    But I have to go on now, so I wil try it again later.

  • Hi,


    the syntax for loadfile is "loadfile <path> [<address>]", where address is only used for .bin files, as they do not include location information.

    For hexfiles, the path is sufficient, as in "loadfile C:\Temp\app.hex" .

  • Hello.
    Sorry, was quite busy yesterday.

    It seems to work with J-link...at least I can connect, set breakpoints, go, halt, reset. I did this first with the commander in win7 (see first png for complete session and first txt for logfile) and after with win10 (see 3rd txt).
    Unfortunately I am not quite able to fully understand how to read this.

  • Hi,


    sorry for the delay in response.
    First of all, it shows that debugging with J-Link works on both systems.

    The text shown after each step is the disassembly of the executed step.
    We also ship a sophisticated Debugger with GUI, Ozone.

    If the issue with Dave 4 still persists, could you please provide us with the GDB version used on each system?
    If they differ, does it work when using the working version instead on the noon-working setup?

  • O.K. ...

    From what I have seen, GDBServer never crashed but it was always GDB that closed the connection (maybe due to crashing).
    As both are independent processes, it cannot be a problem in GDBServer (which is the SEGGER component)

    My guess:
    There was some internal problem in DAVE that caused GDB to crash when evaluating a specific part of debug information in the ELF file etc.
    However, it is just a guess.

    Let's close this case for now.
