    (Command line appears)

    cd /home/logic/sample_app/2.3.5/led_flasher/

    Gkhn@x cd /home/logic/sample_app/2.3.5/led_flasher/

    Select Program Location:

    2 > enter (ram)

    Then please see the screenshot. arm-elf-gcc.exe gives an exception message.


    None of the executables placed in "cygwin/logicpd/gnutools/v3-1/bin" ie. arm-elf-ar.exe, arm-elf-cpp.exe, arm-elf-nm.exe, arm-elf-strip.exe, wish84.exe, none of them work. They all give the same exception handler message. I believe somehow they are not valid executable files for Cygwin under Windows.

    The executable files under "cygwin/logicpd/gnutools/v3-1/arm-elf/bin" runs without exception messages. ie. gcc.exe, ar.exe, ld.exe

    I completed all steps by including all processors and source code in STEP 3B. It does not work.

    My OS is Windows XP Professional and CPU is Intel Q6000 2.4GHz Quad Core CPU. We've Fedora, Ubuntu and Pardus Linux distributions installed on other machines also.
