Thanks. Got the project inported.
I was at that dialog before, but had no idea what to do with it.
To make this simpler for someone, it should give the most common things as click boxes.
Existing project should not be hidden under “general”. IT should be in the list above general, or have a checkbox. The other common tasks should be there too.
So now I got it compiled, picked debug and can’t figure out how to download.
There should be two buttons that are not there.
1. Connect that would allow you to select the connection and connect to the board, with an indication as to when you are connected, i.e. the software can talk to the debugger.
2. a download to the device button.
The project created an .elf file. Of course the STM32F411 nucleo board is set up for a bin file, using
mbed, but that is not going to have the debug information,
So how do you download the code into the nucleo board so you can open and step at the source level?
Sure these are questions that are being asked by someone new to Eclipse. But they are not in the FAQ.. Just for the record, I’m an ebedded firmware developer with a medical device company. I’ve been doing this for 30 years. All the way back to 6805, 8031, 6502 days. So I’m not a noob to embedded, but this journey that has been going on for nearly 2 months, just to be able to get a test program to compile and be able to debug it as been a complete nightmare.
CooCox doesn’t support it.
Embed doesn’t have debugging capability other tha 1980’s serial print facility (typically the first thing one does with a new embedded project, but passe today)
Emblocks compiled but produced an empty file
There were a couple more that I tried to no effect.
Then the FAE turned me to openSTM32 and I have been trying to get it to work for several weeks.
AsI related, projects had errors, couldn’t find a way to change projects.
Changing projects is still not something that I know how to do yet.
