    • Hello,

      Thank you for your inquiry.
      Such an issue is not known to us.

      Do you see the same behaviour in V5.34?
      Usually you should simply get a pop up when a target is not connected asking if the simulator should be used.

      If the issue appears with the latest version as well could you provide more information about your setup?
      What host OS are you running on?
      Is the issue reproducible each time?
      Could you provide an example project that shows this behaviour?

      Best regards,
      Nino

      V5.34 have the same issue. As i know v5.20 v5.30 has exactly the same problem.


      The condition is
      1. Connect JLink to target(with power supply);
      2. Disable CPU or Halt fail, maybe only connect JTAG VTREF Pin will works the same;
      3. Configure IDE use JLink/JTAG as the debugger;
      4. Use IDE to connect target or enter debug session;

      OS: Windows 10 Home

    • Hello,

      What do you mean with step 2?
      Should step 3 not be the first one?
      Whenever I try to connect to the target or enter the debug session and the target is not powered on or not connected I simply get a "Could not connect error" and end up back at the ES mainscreen.

      Could you provide more detailed reproduction steps?
      What target device are you debugging?

      Best regards,

    • Generate a new RV32 project follow guide, or whatever project.
      Configure IDE use JLink-JTAG;
      Connect GND/VTREF to GND/VCC-3.3V like picture bellow, other pin connect nothing(just like some CPU logic fail condition);


      Then, build project and click Debug-Go button, now, the crash occur.

      Configuration and Demo project plz reference to attachments.
      By the way, this issue can be reproduced in any PC, 5 or more computers as i tested.

    • Hello,

      Thank you for providing additional information.
      Yes the issue is reproducible for us. We are looking into it.
      The crucial part was to supply VTREF and GND to J-Link as it works if this is not supplied.

      Should be fixed soon.
