Crossworks - loader communication buffer too small

Started by Markus Zingg March 4, 2010
Hi all,

I started to work on an olimex LPC2478 board and intend to write some
proprietary firmware using Crossworks. I sucessfully did some projects
with the Amontec JTAG tiny, and can connect to the board from within
Crossworks. However, when I try to download my code to start debugging,
a "loader communication buffer too small" error message apears. The
Output window does not show any errors though. What can I do?

I have to say that I'm useing Release 1.7 build 8 and that the project
files were for the LPC2468 and not for the LPC2478. I was under the
impression that this should not matter as the only difference between
the two is the support for the LCD.

Any ideas?

TIA

Markus

Hi Markus, I had this problem too when moving from 2468 to 2478. Have
you tried this from the crossworks support site:
