I am unable to use the VisualDSP++ SAFP on my Windows 64-bit machine. Running the same script on my 32-bit machine works without any problem.





When using the VisualDSP++ SAFP on a 64-bit Windows machine it will not not work. You may encounter an error but it is more likely nothing will happen.


To workaround this a 32-bit version of cscript/wscript should be used, both of which can be found at the following location:



This is detailed in the Readme.txt file contained in the SAFP Scripting Examples folder, which is available here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\VisualDSP 5.0\Blackfin\Examples\Scripting Examples\SAFP\


Support for 64-Bit Windows (Windows 7 only) was introduced in VisualDSP++ update 7. More information on this can be found in the following FAQ:
