µVISION: COPYING CD-ROM DATASHEETS TO YOUR HARD DRIVE


Information in this article applies to:

  • µVision Version 2.12

QUESTION

I have copied the content of the Keil CD-ROM to my hard disk (into the C:\KEIL\DATASHEETS\ folder), but the µVision IDE still asks for the CD-ROM when I try to open a Device Data Book in the Project Windows - Books tab. How can I tell µVision to use the books on my hard disk?

ANSWER

There are two solutions to this problem.

  1. Within the µVision IDE, you may use Project - Components, Environment, and Books - Books tab to specify the folder for Device-Specific books. Enter the path (C:\KEIL\DATASHEETS\) where the data sheets are stored. You may use this dialog to also add additional documents to the books tab. This works on a project-by-project basis.
  2. You may modify the DEVICE_BOOKS entry in \KEIL\TOOLS.INI to include a path to the copy of the CD-ROM. For example:
    [UV2]
    ORGANIZATION=...
    NAME=...
    .
    .
    .
    DEVICE_BOOKS=C:\KEIL\CD\ 
    

    You may copy the whole Keil CD-ROM to the C:\KEIL\CD\ folder on your hard drive.
