adsp-21161n ezkit not working in vdsp++5.1.2 under win 7x64

  • Hi,

    The 0x80048015 target connection error indicates there might be a problem with the EZ-KIT driver on your machine.

    Unfortunately, there are no drivers for non-RoHS EZ-KIT Lites under 64-bit Operating Systems; we only have a driver for the RoHS EZ-KIT Lites. You can determine whether your EZ-KIT Lite is RoHS compliant or not by the prefix on the board: "ADZS-21161N EZ-KIT Lite" parts are RoHS compliant, "ADDS-21161N EZ-KIT Lite" are not.

    Please refer the below FAQ's.
    FAQ: VisualDSP++ and 64-bit Windows

    FAQ: Windows 7 Compatibility in VisualDSP++ Development Tools

    For information on the differences between our RoHS EZ-Kits and Non-RoHS EZ-Kits please see the following FAQ:

    Please check that your EZ-Kit is installed properly by checking your computer's 'Device Manager'. You should find the EZ-Kit listed under 'ADI Development tools'. If listed, double-click on the EZ-Kit to show the driver properties and ensure there are no issues listed. If any listed, please take a note of them along with the driver version number installed and send these details to us. If it is not listed, or you are having problems with the drivers, you should try reinstalling the drivers.
