mIDAS-Link Breakpoint debugging

I recently received a EVAL-ADuC7060 evaluation kit. I am new to Analog's uCs, but familiar with other uCs such as PICs.


After setting up the DLLs properly I was finally able to connect to the device through the included mIDAS-Link POD, however it seems to have very limited features.


The J-Link commander gives the following info for this unit:


SEGGER J-Link Commander V4.08l ('?' for help)
Compiled Sep 17 2009 09:42:18
DLL version V4.08l, compiled Sep 17 2009 09:41:55
Firmware: J-Link ARM V8 compiled May 20 2010 17:07:46
Hardware: V8.00
S/N : ---
Feature(s) : RDI
VTarget = 3.300V
Info: TotalIRLen = 4, IRPrint = 0x01
Found 1 JTAG device, Total IRLen = 4:
#0 Id: 0x3F0F0F0F, IRLen:  4, IRPrint: 0x1 ARM7TDMI Core
Found ARM with core Id 0x3F0F0F0F (ARM7)
JTAG speed: 5 kHz


According to UM08001_JLinkARM users guide the mIDAS-Link POD should come with built-in licenses for RDI, FlashBP and FlashDL, which should show up on the Feature(s) line. I am only seeing RDI.


I cannot download the code to the board, possibly because the FlashDL feature is not enabled. I can use ARMWSD to program over the serialport, but this is not ideal.


Debugging using RDI seems to work, however, I cannot get breakpoints to work, possibly because FlashBP is not enabled. Debugging without breakpoints doesn't make much sense.


Are all mIDAS-Link units supposed to come with these licenses? How do I go about enabling this feature?
