How to convert a Visual DSP project to CCES project

Hi i am having a visual dsp example project and i want to run it in CCES, can i just copy the source code to CCES and compile it ? My project i need to convert is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\VisualDSP 5.1.2\Blackfin\Examples\ADSP-BF533 EZ-KIT Lite\LED Blink (C)

    Hi Thanh,

    Please find the CCES examples from the ADSP-BF533 board support package. You can download and install the BSP (Board support package) for ADSP-BF533 in the below link.

    Once you installed, you can find the example code from the below mentioned installation path.
    [Installation Directory]:\Analog Devices\ADSP-BF533_EZKIT-Rel1.0.1\BF533_EZ-Kit_Lite\Blackfin\Examples

    Regarding the code conversion from VDSP to CCES.
    >> While migrating from VDSP to CCES, there are a number of ways in which VisualDSP++ applications differ from CCES applications: RTOS, interrupt handling, SSL/DD APIs, and more. If your VisualDSP++ application uses such mechanisms, you have to make corresponding changes to your application's source code before the application can build in CCES. Similarly, if your application uses a customized LDF, the LDF may make references to libraries that are not used in CCES, or omit ones that are.

    We would also recommend reading the Getting Started with CrossCore Embedded Studio FAQ:

    We have a number of CCES introductory videos on our Analog Devices Video Channel. These videos are also indexed on the CrossCore Embedded Studio product page.
