I am using CCES 2.6.0 (On Windows 10 Pro) with the ADSP-21489 EZ-Kit Lite, and am having some issues running debug sessions for the example projects in the Board Support Package. 


I am trying to run a debug session for the BSP project Power_On_Self_Test (which builds correctly), but get the following error: 

Error in launch sequence

[TpsdkServer] Failed to retrieve number of memory types






A common cause of the error is that the CrossCore Embedded Studio tools are still connected to the target, as part of a previously launched Debug Configuration.


To ensure it isn't booting a bad image that is causing issues communicating with the processor via JTAG, take a look at the Boot Mode Selector and check if you have set the boot mode correctly. After setting it, power-cycle the target before trying to load and debug your DXE.


If the boot mode selector was already set to default, can you try a different setting. Try using boot mode 1, power cycle the target, then try launching your debug configuration.


If the behavior is unchanged, can you try deleting your launch configuration and re-creating it?
