VisualDSP++ Debugging Assembly

Hi there!

I've been using VisualDSP++ in order to test the SHARC ADSP-21469 processor. After a couple of tries I finally compiled an assembly program and tested with the simulator.

Everything works properly, but there is a thing that annoys me. When I'm debbuging the assembly file, each step of the execution opens a new source window of the same file. The first instructions are ok, but after a while VisualDSP is really heavy and slow.

I've been trying to check different settings but I haven't found any solution for it. Does anyone has faced the same problem?

VisualDSP++ Version is running on W10.

Kind Regards

  • Can you please share the project file if possible?

  • Just see that you are using VisualDSP++ on windows 10. Unfortunately we do not support any version of VisualDSP++ on windows 10. Also there are no plans to upgrade VDSP++ for windows 10.

    Please note that Visual DSP 5.1.2 is supported on the following operating systems:


    Windows XP Professional SP3 (32-bit only) Windows Vista Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate SP2 (32-bit only) Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate (32 and 64-bit) Windows 8 Pro or Enterprise (32 and 64-bit)


    While we have had some customers report success using VisualDSP++ in Windows10 with the Windows "Compatibility Mode", this is not something we have tested nor that we support. We can only support customers using the above mentioned supported operating systems for VisualDSP++.


    We recommend to refer the below FAQs, while installing VisualDSP++ 5.1.2 in window 10.

    FAQ: Advantages of using 'Run as Administrator' on Windows 7 or 8 for VisualDSP++

    FAQ: Windows 7 Compatibility in VisualDSP++ Development Tools


    We hope that this gives you a usable environment, but must stress that this is neither tested or supported. If you continue to encounter issues, we would ask that you use a supported operating system.
