µVISION: MOVING TOOLS TO A DIFFERENT FOLDER
Information in this article applies to:
I want to upgrade my µVision Version 2 installation to the latest tool version. However, I must be able to use the older µVision installation for rebuilding existing projects. I need to be able to rebuild EXACTLY the same binary for every program I have ever written. Is there a way to move the installation folder of an µVision installation including IDE and debugger?
Yes. You may copy a complete µVision installation to a new folder. µVision does not use folder information from the registry. The only place where folder names are stored is in the PATH variables in ..\TOOLS.INI which is stored relative to the UV2\UV2.EXE program.
Note that the PATH variables in TOOLS.INI specify the default location for the compiler toolchain. In µVision, your project may override this path setting under Project - File Extensions, Books, Environment Setup - Environment Setup.
To move the installation folder of C51 Version 6.10 to the new folder name C:\KEIL610\ you must change the PATH setting in C:\KEIL610\TOOLS.INI. For example:
[UV2] . . . [C51] . . . PATH="C:\KEIL610\C51" . . .
To use the Version 6.10 tools, start µVision2 from the C:\KEIL610\UV2 folder.
