Question
When using the multilink with your software tools, I get an error $8882 when it attempts to firmware update every time. This setup used to work with older multilink but not with the new multilink. What is going on?
 
Answer
We have multiple revisions of multilink universal hardware and newer revisions will require newer software. When using a newer multilink with older software, the software has no way of understanding how to update the firmware of the new revision. It will keep failing with error $8882.

The only solution around this is to get updated software. If you are using Codewarrior software, you can simply use our FAQ #211 to patch up the software:

If you are using our Eclipse ARM or PPCNEXUS plugin, you should go to the Help Menu within Eclipse -> Check for Updates and get the latest plugin from our website. If you have issues with this step, please refer to this blog post:

If you are using any of our PROG, ICD, PKG, or UNIT software then you will need to purchase a new license for that software to get the latest version. You can purchase a new license online and if done with credit card you will automatically and immediately receive the new install key and software in your account.

To learn about which version of software was required to support your newer hardware, please check the support tab within the product page of the software you are using and see the release notes.

Typically we have free software upgrades within 1 year of purchase, so if you think you qualify please go to our support page and submit a support request for an updated version. However, considering this error $8882 only happens on much older software that are many years old, you are most likely not qualified for a free upgrade.
