LPC2000 flash utility v2.2.3 + Windows 7 => can't make them work together...

Started by dsourgen January 15, 2011
Hello,

My new laptop at work came with Windows 7 professional 32 bits.
I installed Vision and LPC2000 flash utility v2.2.3.
(I also installed free trial version of Hyperterminal since it has disappeared in Windows 7. I don't know if it has anything to do with my problem).
Anyway, Hex file upload to MCB2130 kit via ISP does not work. (Actually, it works sometimes but it is very rare).
Windows 7 indicates compatibility trouble with Flash utility.
I spent more than 2 hours trying different "compatibility modes" and searching solutions on the web => I can't make it work properly.
Upload starts and then stops before ending (now always at the same step) and "LPC2000 Flash Utility - Hardware Problem - Cannot communicate with test board!" error window appears.
I guess I am not the first to experience it. Has anyone managed to solve this problem? Other flash utility program? windows configuration?
Thank you,

Daniel

PS: same versions of "Vision + LPC2000 flash utility + USB-RS232 adapter driver" work properly under Windows XP SP2 on my old laptop.

download Flash Magic (ISP) and Teraterm (terminal). LPC2000 Flash utility
has been abandoned for a long time and replaced by Flash Magic.

Re: Hyperterminal

The 'pay' version of Hyperterminal does work on Win 7 and it seems to work much better than the previous 'included' versions.

Kermit is still available and it works pretty well but, between the two, I use Hyperterminal much more often. Considering its age, Kermit is EXPENSIVE; probably because of the admin costs at Columbia University. But when I needed to transfer files to new CP/M system and all I had on the receiving end was Kermit, there wasn't much choice about the sending end.

One nice thing about Hyperterminal is the 'phone' icons where you can cause HT to 'hang up' and release the serial port so that the programming software can use it. If the terminal software won't/can't drop the port, swapping between terminal and programming software is a PITA.

FlashMagic has a terminal tool.

Cmon, paying for a terminal app is a ultrageous. There is a ton of
opensource terminals.

I found that 'ucon' is a free and very good terminal tool with scripting and timestamping capabilities.

It works on Windows 7

I had the same issue with W7... A friend suggest to use VirtualBox from
Oracle and I give it a try. Very nice ! Much better than Microsoft XP Mode.

Now I'm using a virtual XP hosted on W7 and everything works perfectly.

Thanks all for your answers.
Everything is OK since I am using Flash magic.
