ULINK: HEX PROGRAMMING APPENDS .AXF?


Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:

  • MDK-ARM Version 4.13a

SYMPTOM

After upgrading to V4.13a, when using µVision as a hex file programmer, the .AXF extension is always appended to the name of the .HEX file (e.g. Blinky.HEX.AXF). This did not happen in previous MDK-ARM versions.

CAUSE

This is a known issue in MDK-ARM V4.13a.

RESOLUTION

For a workaround, do the following:

  1. Use the Function Editor to write a small, 1-line ".INI" script file that loads the HEX file for you. For example:
    Load "C:\\Keil\\ARM\\Boards\\Keil\\MCB1700\\LCD_Blinky\\Flash\\Blinky.HEX"
    
  2. Add the name of your script file to the Init File text box in in Options for Target — Utilities.
  3. Uncheck Load Application at Startup in Options for Target — Debug.

STATUS

This will be corrected in the next MDK-ARM release.
