Question:

After installing non-ADI software I now find CCES slow building my application.

 

===============

 

Answer:

This issue could be caused by the new software using the same licensing technology we incorporate into CCES, which is then setting an environment variable called LM_LICENSE_FILE. This causes CCES to initially search an incorrect path for a license, resulting in a delay at build time.

 

To work around this issue we would recommend that you set ANALOGD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable, which is specific to our tools, in your system. This can be done by following the procedure below:

 

  • Right click on "My Computer"
  • Select Properties
  • Click on the Advanced Tab and then the "Environment Variables" button
  • Under "User variables for xxxx", click the "New" button and enter the following information –

 

            Variable Name: ANALOGD_LICENSE_FILE

            Variable Value (XP machine): <Install_Dir>\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Analog Devices\CrossCore Embedded Studio

Variable Value (Windows 7 machine): <Install_Dir>\ProgramData\Analog Devices\CrossCore Embedded Studio

 

You should now notice an improvement in the build time of your application.
