Freescale/NXP Codewarrior - Why so many issues with Windows 10?

(1/9) > >>

AndersJ:
Does anyone know why Codewarrior V6.3 and V4.7
have so much trouble installing and running under Windows 10?

nctnico:
Windows10 is different in some ways and it may break older applications. One of things that has been changed is the way GUI events are handled. For example: in Windows10 a user interface item may receive events before it is fully initialised.

MosherIV:
No idea.
What I would suggest is to take every opportunity to tell Freescale/NXP how bad Eclipse is !
Hopefully, if they understand how bad Eclipse IDE is for embedded tools, they will stop using it as the base for their tools and go back to actually developing a decent tool  :palm:

andersm:
Lots of older software weren't exactly developed with best practices in mind. Many also broke with the move to multi-core machines, eg. Renesas' old HEW IDE will just randomly crash unless forced to run on a single core.

I downloaded Codewarrior 11, hoping it might work in Windows 10.
* The complexity is huge. I don’t want to go down that rabbit hole.
* It seems to not support HCS12X
* It cannot import legacy HCS08 projects

Nobody from NXP has clarified what is needed for W10.
How can it be a problem to upgrade legacy well functioning tools to Windows 10?

I have a dozen products to support, currently in Windows XP.
XP is getting more and more problematic.
I am trying to upgrade to Windows 10, but it is not easy.
