µVISION: CHANGING SYNTAX COLORING


Information in this article applies to:

  • µVision3 -- All versions

QUESTION

I just installed µVision3, but when I change the syntax coloring used in the text editor, my changes are not saved.  What could cause this? 

ANSWER

This can happen if your C:\KEIL\ folder is write protected.  Please make sure that you have Full Control permission to the C:\KEIL\ folder and all sub-folders. 

Syntax coloring (and other configuration options) are stored in .INI files in the C:\KEIL\UV3\ folder for each tool.  When you first start µVision after an installation, µVision tries to copy the C:\KEIL\UV3\xxx_DEFAULT.INI file to C:\KEIL\UV3\xxx.INI (where xxx is the tool name).  Without proper folder permissions (i.e. Full Control) for C:\KEIL\ and sub-folders, µVision cannot create these files and uses the xxx_DEFAULT.INI files instead.
