General / Using Production System NET and SWD over Link2
November 10, 2017, 08:25:10 AM
We previously used Production System NET to program LPC1769 chips over a serial interface. This go-around, due to the design, we can't use the serial port, so we have to switch to using SWD over Link2. We are using Production System NET v10.60. While the stand-alone Flash Magic application works when "SWD over Link2" is selected, we can't get the .NET libraries to work.

The first problem is that the interface looks for USBDriver.dll. This is not mentioned in any of the documentation. This DLL needs to be placed in C:\Windows\System32 on 32-bit systems and C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64 on 64-bit systems. Placing it in the same directory where the other DLLs (FlashMagicARMCortex.dll, etc) doesn't work.

Once you get that straightened out, the Connect function throws an error: "Unable to communicate. Serial number not found". I have no idea what serial number it's looking for. If it's for the LPC1769, it's not going to find one, since as far as I know, it doesn't have one. Is there something else that needs to be done to get SWD over Link2 to work with Production System NET?
