Question
My classic Codewarrior or other 3rd party software with PEmicro support will not detect my PEmicro hardware tool or fails to connect to my target. What can I do to fix this?
 
Answer
Many customers today still rely heavily on classic Codewarrior software and other 3rd party software (such as CF Flasher, IAR, Greenhills, etc.) with PEmicro support, which could have been last released and supported before the Windows 7 and 64-bit operating system became the new standard or before the new PEmicro hardware like the Multilink Universal, Multilink Universal FX, Cyclone Universal, or Cyclone Universal FX ever existed.

To add support to older software for the newer PEmicro hardware, updated firmware, and to add support for 64-bit windows, the attached patches were created for specific chip architectures into classic Codewarrior software and other 3rd party software. If the PEmicro hardware is not detected by the operating system within device manager, please use the attached PEmicro Hardware Interface Drivers version 12.

Note, these patches were tested on mostly NXP's classic Codewarrior IDE's on a Windows 7 64-bit machine and PEmicro does not guarantee its success on all 3rd party software or resolve all hardware and firmware issues on all flavors of operating systems. Also, these patches do not add new chip support. For example the support for HCS08PA and HCS08PT chips are not supported in classic Codewarrior so please contact the developers of the IDE for questions related to chip support.
