B. File Types

The following file types are supported by µVision:

Project Files

  • *.OPT: Project Option file with options (debugger settings, current open files, screen positions, and so on) from older µVision versions. This file is read and transformed into a *.UVOPT or *.UVOPTX file type by µVision.
  • *.UVGUI[.user-name]: µVision4 Project screen layout file. The extension [.user-name] is added when working in a work-group environment. When this file is missing, the default layout is used. This file is not mandatory.
  • *.UVGUIX[.user-name]: µVision5 Project screen layout file. The extension [.user-name] is added when working in a work-group environment. When this file is missing, the default layout is used. This file is not mandatory.
  • *.UVMPW: µVision4 Project file for Multiple Projects. Contains references to other project files and binds them into one project. The file is mandatory when multiple projects are grouped into one project. Has an XML structure and can be shared in a work-group.
  • *.UVPROJ: µVision4 Project File. Contains the project structure in XML format. This mandatory file can be shared in a work-group.
  • *.UVPROJX: µVision5 Project File. Contains the project structure in XML format. This mandatory file can be shared in a work-group.
  • *.UVOPT: µVision4 project options. Contains the settings for the debugger, trace configuration, breakpoints, currently open files, ... . This mandatory XML file can be shared in a work-group.
  • *.UVOPTX: µVision5 project options. Contains the settings for the debugger, trace configuration, breakpoints, currently open files, ... . This mandatory XML file can be shared in a work-group.
  • *.UV2: µVision3 Project File. Open the files with a later µVision version to convert the file to a new project type.

Source Files

  • *.A51: Assembler source file.
  • *.A66: Assembler source file.
  • *.C: C source file.
  • *.CPP: C++ source file.
  • *.H: C header file (used with #include).
  • *.INC: Assembler include file (used with $include).
  • *.S: Assembler source file (typical used for ARM source files).
  • *.SRC: Other source file generated by the C compiler.

Listing Files

  • *.COD: Complete program listing file. Includes mixed C and Assembly code. All references are resolved and addresses are fixed-up.
  • *.HTM: Listing file of the Linker.
  • *.I: C Preprocessor Output File.
  • *.LST: Listing file generated by the C Compiler or Assembler.
  • *.MAP: Listing file (or Map file) generated by the Linker.
  • *.M51: Listing file (or Map file) generated by the Linker.
  • *.M66: Listing file (or Map file) generated by the Linker.
  • *.SCR: Linker scatter loader file. Generated by the Linker. Can be altered manually.

Object and HEX Files

  • *.(no extension): Absolute Object File (executable programs generated by the Linker).
  • *.AXF: Absolute and executable object file generated by the Linker.
  • *.Bxx: Absolute object file generated by OC51 for individual code banks (xx may be from 00 to 31).
  • *.D: Dependency file generated by the ARMCC or GCC compiler.
  • *.CRF: Cross-Reference file containing browse information (definitions, references for identifiers).
  • *.ELF: ELF/DWARF files generated by the Linker/Locater.
  • *.HEX: Intel Hex file, generated by the Object-Hex Conversion Utility.
  • *.H86: Intel Hex file, generated by the Object-Hex Conversion Utility.
  • *.LIB: Library object file.
  • *.OBJ: Relocatable object file.
  • *.O: Relocatable object files.
  • *.SBR: Source Browser Information file generated by the Linker/Locater.

Build Files

  • *.BAT: batch file that re-creates a project from the command prompt. µVision may create a batch file when Project - Output - Create Batch File is enabled.
  • *._IA, *.__I, *._II, *.SCR: tool invocation files.

Debugger Files

  • *.INI: Source code file used typically for initializing the debugger.

Other Files

  • *.BUILD_LOG.HTM: Build Log file of the latest project build.
