Key Summary Component Description
IDE-44998 Toolchain FPU settings not updated when re-configuring a project for a different CPU core DDSC/FSP Smart Configurator When changing device selection on the BSP page of the FSP Configuration Editor, FPU-related toolchain settings are not updated. This may result in incorrect FPU-related settings in cases where the new device selected does not use the same processor core as the old device. Workaround: When selecting a new device which uses a different processor core, save the FSP Configuration Editor document and then apply the correct toolchain FPU settings for the new processor core from the project properties dialog as follows: Cortex-M0+: No FPU, Default FP ABI Cortex-M4: FPv4_SP FPU, Hard FP ABI Cortex-M23: No FPU, Default FP ABI Cortex-M33: FPv5_SP FPU, Hard FP ABI
IDE-44843 Build fails for converted RL78 CPP projects RL78 LLVM Plugins The build for converted GCC RL78 CPP to LLVM projects will fail if main.c file will contain the following code: #ifdef CPPAPP //Initialize global constructors extern void __main() { static int initialized; if (! initialized) { typedef void (*pfunc) (); extern pfunc __ctors[]; extern pfunc __ctors_end[]; pfunc *p; initialized = 1; for (p = __ctors_end; p > __ctors; ) (*--p) (); } } #endif User will have to manually delete the code in order for the build to be successful.
IDE-44778 GCC_VERSION is not set on Linux for legacy KPIT toolchains ARM GCC Plugins When creating an RZ GCC project with legacy RZ KPIT toolchains on Linux host OS, the GCC_VERSION variable is not being set in the project's environment. This can be added manually via the Properties -> C/C++ Build -> Environment settings page.
IDE-44665 Fail to merge Code sections for Big Endian project Loadmodule Converter With Big Endian project, if the similar warning messages appear when build the project: - "warning: Code sections at 0x8324 and 0xF1E5 are not connected" - "warning: Code section size (0x6EC1) not a multiple of 4" It means there are issues with ELF output file, it may be unable to be used. Workaround: Please try to use -instalign4 option for both Compiler and Library Generator configurations then build the project again.
IDE-44607 If operating frequency is not specified, no data is displayed in ITM trace view. GDB Server E2 ARM When debugging with the J-link ARM debug configuration, the operating frequency setting in the debug configuration can be empty. If it is set to empty and you attempt to use the ITM trace feature, the printf result is displayed in Live Trace Console, but no data is displayed in ITM trace view.
IDE-44581 Emulation areas are not loaded as memory map GDB server RX For RX Simulation, Emulation areas settings on Debug Configuration will not taking effect. This may lead to download failure in some cases. In this case please add these 2 command to 'Initialization Commands' in Startup tab on Debug configuration: delete mem mem 0x00000000 0x100000000 rw nocache
IDE-44458 [Renesas Debug Virtual Console] Enable/Disable button is disabled Debug Console plugin If project debug before view is open, the turn on/off Renesas Debug Virtual Console will be disable Workaround to re-enable that button: . Open view before start debug . Check Pin to Debug Context
IDE-44386 Migrating project when the SSP version the project created with is missing, does not post backward incompatibility warning Synergy Editor When migrating a Synergy project when the SSP version that the project is created with is not installed a message is displayed that does not inform you that the project files will be modified after this action. Note this action cannot be reverted so ensure you have a backup or have your project in revision control before proceeding.
IDE-44142 Live Trace Console doesn't work if the view is not activated before debugger connection. Trace - CoreSight Plugin Restarting a previous debug session with the Live Trace view enabled but not visible can cause the view to not acquire the trace stream. A workaround is to disable and then reenable the view.
IDE-43986 [Linux] Value of RSS bit of DTCCR did not display in combo box IO view plugin In Linux environment, IO register view cannot show the information of bit
IDE-43853 [UX/Usability] Timer setting when debugging resumes Eventpoints plugin Eventpoint timer settings are not restored between application sessions.
IDE-43800 Disable Live Trace Console ON/OFF button while program is running Trace - CoreSight Plugin Please refrain from toggling the on/off button of Live Trace Console while your program is running to prevent unexpected errors. If the said errors occurred, it can be recovered by toggling the on/off button from on to off while your program is in a suspended state.
IDE-43759 Can not modify the value on DSP core RL78 SDMA1 Multicore Debugging GreenDSP When selecting the DSP core on Debug view, modifying the value of IO register on the IO Registers view will not take effective. Workaround: Select CPU on Debug view and modify the DSP IO register correspondingly
IDE-43674 Recheck svd file selection method IO view plugin IO register view cannot show the bit information for all group (Ex: RA4M2). It only can show 1 device per 1 group Example: . only R7FA4M2D can show the bit information in RA4M2 group . only R7FA2A1AB can show the bit information in RA2A1 group . only R7FA2E1A9 can show the bit information in RA2E1 group . only R7FA6M4AF can show the bit information in RA6M4 group But default device each group list in FSP 3.0.0 is the supported device
IDE-43454 Cannot run Linux installer as root Installer The Linux installer for e2 studio cannot be run as root by default, including using "sudo". If you wish to run it as root then you need to add "--appimage-extract-and-run" as the 1st argument. e.g. "sudo ./e2studio_installer-2021-07.AppImage --appimage-extract-and-run"
IDE-43337 Cannot execute make clean (CC-RX) CCRX Build plugin The make clean cannot execute when project has number of source file is large.
IDE-43082 Handle anonymous union DIEs without DW_AT_location Loadmodule Converter When doing the debugging with the project contains anonymous union variable in source code, some debugging features become unavailable, such as: - Source line address may not be shown in Code Editor - Cannot set breakpoint in Code Editor (can do this at Disassembly view) - Can only watch global variables in Expression view
IDE-43059 Wrong char code in exported path setting CDT When e2 studio is launched in non-English mode (e2studio.exe -nl ja_JP) and the source file paths are exported from the project preferences. (C/C++ Settings->Paths and Symbols. The exported xml file encoding is exported in Shift-JIS which is incorrect. It should be UTF-8. This means the file cannot be imported back into the preferences page at a later date. Possible workarounds (either of the follows): Launch e² studio in English mode (e2studio.exe -nl en_GB) when exporting the setting. Convert character encode into UTF-8 with text editor.
IDE-43032 Newer e2studio not migrate the linker section setting (-start) if Auto layout is ticked CCRL Build plugin Linker section setting (-start) is not migrated with project of e2studio v5.x when "layout section automatically" option is selected. The bug occurs from e2studio 6.x.
IDE-42873 Live Trace Console should turn off ITM channels Trace - CoreSight Plugin When using the CoreSight Live ITM Trace feature in e2 studio. When it is switched off in the view via the Enable Trace For Coresight ITM button it does not disable the ITM ports or peripheral.
IDE-42601 Cannot execute make clean Application When running clean on projects with very long folder paths, make can fail with an xargs error. The error states, xargs: cannot fit single argument within argument list size limit.
IDE-42382 Syntax Error parsing in fsp.ld file Linker Script Editor When using the graphical linker editor feature with linker scripts from FSP 2.3 or greater false errors are shown in the editor due to .ld file parsing errors. e.g. __RESERVE_NS_RAM = (! DEFINED(PROJECT_NONSECURE)) && DEFINED(RAM_NS_BUFFER_LENGTH); This is not a linker error (code builds correctly) but a problem with the error parser.
IDE-41132 Program stuck at first software breakpoint of RA6M4 project Debugging RA For RA devices, if the caches of the connected device (such as C-Cache, S-Cache, or Flash Cache) are enabled, software breakpoints may not work for debugging. Please don't use software breakpoints in this case, and please use hardware breakpoints instead.
IDE-40763 Unable to read the connected device ID (device ID address not specified) RA Debugger Connection & Support While debugging any application for RA, e2 studio displays "Unable to read the connected device ID (device ID address not specified)". If you see this error for the RA family when debugging please ignore it.
IDE-40412 The properties view is not being brought to top after an FSP property search RA Configurator The properties view is not brought to the top if it is not already at the top after performing an FSP properties search. The properties view is at the top by default as part of the FSP perspective but in a case where it isn't at the top it should be brought to the top after an FSP property search.
IDE-40114 [Current Consumption] Pop-up window is not closed when you hover mouse out of chart Current Consumption View When using Measuring Current Consumption, moving mouse cursor quickly from the measurement chart to another screen causes stuck pop-up information. Please move the mouse cursor back to the measurement chart to resolve this problem.
IDE-39932 [PartnerOS] Supports debugging of Renesas ITRON OS by PartnerOS plug-in. Partner OS plugin The Renesas ITRON debug views are not supported from e2 studio 2020-04 and later, if you require this functionality please use e2 studio 7.8.0.
IDE-39478 Optimization Assistant - Measuring execution time does not finish Optimization assistant Using Optimization Assistant Time measurement with GCC RX may cause the measurement unable to finish. The end address of function build from GCC RX may be different with the one in Disassembly view so Optimization Assistant cannot reach the end of function. If the measurement is too long to finish or unable to finish, just press "Cancel" to stop measurement.
IDE-38324 failed to upgrade with e2studio_installer-2020-10.R20200923-0905.exe Installer When upgrading an e2 studio 2020-04 or 2020-07 containing RA Family support to 2020-10 using the installer you may encounter on the features page. To avoid this you either need to re-select RA on the Device Family selection page or uncheck and check again "Renesas FSP Smart Configuration Core" on the Features page
IDE-38032 IAR RH850 setting breakpoints doesn't work Debugging RH850 If you are debugging RH850 with the E2 emulator with an IAR project you must ensure that the IAR RH850 plugins are also installed. Otherwise it is not possible to set breakpoints.
IDE-37833 [RA6M4] NSECSD debugging fails if non-secure region is not pre-downloaded with non-secure program in SSD state Debugging RA In case of using RA devices which support ARM TrustZone, a temporary non-secure test program must be downloaded into the non-secure region in SSD state before transitioning the state to NSECSD state. If the non-secure region is not pre-loaded with a non-secure program, non-secure project debugging in NSECSD state will fail.
IDE-37634 Cannot restore selected register of one of the two sessions for RH850 multicore device IO view plugin In IO Registers View, the selected register of one of two session is lost and it is replaced with the selected register of the other session. Issue only appears when debugging with RH850 multicore device.
IDE-37416 Eventpoint view cannot count hardware breakpoint at main Eventpoints plugin When using the RE device the maximum number of breakpoints that can be set does not count the automatic breakpoint set at main. This can then cause a connection failure as this breakpoint cannot be set and the sequence fails. Removing one user breakpoint will allow the connection to complete successfully.
IDE-36999 Deleting debug folder causes TZ projects to fail RA TrustZone When debugging a RA TrustZone project, if you delete the Debug folder from a Non-Secure project it causes a build failure when referencing NSC guard functions.. This can be corrected by a Clean project operation.
IDE-36152 Support multicore for RVDC view Debug Console plugin Renesas Virtual Debug Console view have just supported multi-sessions. In case the session have multi-core, it cannot realize, then it will show data from cores into single view. The data will be messy.
IDE-36041 RVDC does NOT show data when multicore devices such as RZ/T Debug Console plugin When creating Launch Group with 2 different RZ/T projects which have 2 different cores. The second project can show data on Renesas Virtual Debug Console but the first project cannot.
IDE-35635 On RL78 simulator, time measurement when the device is in standby mode does not work correctly Device Support RL78 On RL78 simulator, when the program is on standby (in halt, stop, or snooze mode for an RL78 device), the run-break time is not correctly measured in the following cases. • Suspended a program in standby mode. • A program is run following standby mode (run after suspended).
IDE-35319 Command "-break-insert " is still displayed in GDB console of non-active thread Application In some situations the enabling the "Restrict new breakpoint to active debug selection" toolbar button is not restricting the breakpoint to the debug selection. With 2 simultaneous simulator sessions it adds the breankpoint to both debug contexts.
IDE-33927 Should not count number of HW Breakpoints as eventpoints when they do not share HW resource Eventpoints plugin If debugging ARM device with E2 emulator, when setting hardware breakpoints they will be counted as eventpoints on Eventpoints view. Please ignore them from the number of eventpoints.
IDE-33869 Cannot create RZ project when user folder has space Project Generation Core If a the Windows profile user name has a space within it, such as "John Smith" it can cause problems when creating projects. A RZ project cannot be created in case user folder has white space. An error dialog will be displayed. Please change the workspace to an area without a space.
IDE-33492 Loading e2studio 7.x project into e2studio 2020-04 and generated code, some code is different comparing with previous Code Generator plugin For CG RL78/D1A,after loading project (e2studio project or AP3 project) which is saved on 32-bit environment in 64-bit environment, TAU0 channel1 input selection (refer to the red box in the figure below ) can’t be kept.
IDE-33473 Watch point doesn't work on ARM V8M Devices(RA2A1,PEAKS,STAR) with J-Link Debugging RA When using the J-Link debugger for ARM V8M devices (Synergy S1JA,RA2A1,.etc) When setting Watch points, if the [Compare Setting] option is not being used then please set the [Data Access Setting]/[Size] to "Byte". Other settings will cause the break event to be missed or unexpected break events to happen.
IDE-33403 RA E2 Emulator: Data-flash is not erased Even if "Erase on-chip data flash before download" = Yes E2 Emulator When using the E2 emulator with the RA device family the data flash is not erased even if "Erase on-chip data flash before download" = Yes. If the download module is not located in the data flash area the data flash is not erased.
IDE-33279 "generate" folder is created after Change Device in Amazon FreeRTOS project for RZA2M RTOS Configurator When changing device for a GCC RZ project using Amazon FreeRTOS additional device startup files will be incorrectly added to the project. To avoid this deselect "Project Files" in the change preview.
IDE-32543 QE Tools removed with Update from 7.6 to 7.7 Installer When updating e2 studio versions using an installer any installed QE tools are removed and then must be reinstalled. To preserve QE tools during an update use the "Check for Updates" function in the "Help" menu to perform an online update.
IDE-32530 Heap configuration settings not getting updated for AC6 compiler RA Configurator For a Renesas RA FSP project in e2 studio 7.6, setting the heap size property in the Configuration Editor for an RA project does not pass this modified heap value to the linker script options (AC 6.12). One workaround for this issue is for the user to manually edit the linker file (e.g. .scat) and set the heap size value in there as well.
IDE-32212 Change eventpoint setting when program is suspended may change the content of trace data GDB server In case of using trace feature with RX200 or RX100 series, if event setting is changed before the trace information is displayed, the incorrect contents might be displayed. Please don't change the event setting before displaying trace information.
IDE-32012 Breakpoint does not relocate after download Debugger When there ia active debug and a relocated breakpoint, when the download action is executed the relocated breakpoint marker is not shown correctly; it is shown on the requested line, not the relocated line as expected.
IDE-31944 --fix-segments should be added (or not removed) with RA and E2/E2lite Debug Configuration When creating a project which uses the J-link ARM debugger a command line option --fix-segments flag is added to the additional GDB parameters on startup. If you then switch to using the E2 emulator this parameter is removed. Please add this parameter back into the command line to ensure it continues to work well.
IDE-31863 Debugger crashed at variable array declared in stack frame Debugger Under some circumstances, evaluating a variable length array might show wrong results or even cause GDB to crash. This is known to happen when we try to evaluate a variable length array and the instructions that write the information regarding that array have not yet been executed. This is a GCC bug and can be found at https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=93380. One way to workaround this problem would be to use a fixed size array. Another workaround can be close the Variables View and open it again/ evaluate the variable length array once the code that initialises the memory has been executed.
IDE-31495 [Stack Analysis] Stack tree for RA projects only shows overridden symbol Stack Analysis View Stack Analysis view may display incorrectly in below case: - C Project with RA device which have overridden function. Stack tree only shows one symbol for overridden function instead showing all functions.
IDE-31476 Debug execution status is incorrectly reported after Restart under certain conditions Debugger When the debug Restart button is clicked, if it is not possible for the system to insert a breakpoint on main, the program will fail to load correctly and the Debug view will incorrectly report the program as running. Workaround: make sure there is a free breakpoint available (the maximum number of breakpoints is not already inserted) before clicking Restart.
IDE-31402 E2 Emulator: On-chip Data flash was always erased even if "Erase on-chip data flash before download" = No E2 Emulator In case of using RA devices with E2 or E2 Lite emulator, the option "Erase on-chip data flash before download" will not work if the download data for data flash area is not included.
IDE-30613 RH850 debug configuration needs to support blank flash memory fill option. Debug Configuration RH850 When viewing flash memory in the Memory View, it can be confusing as the values for this memory type can be random for unwritten blank flash memory regions. This can then result in many false positives for memory changes, resulting in more memory changes than expected. (red text) To fix this the debugger supports detection and filling of blank addresses areas with a user specified hex byte value. There is currently no user interface support for this feature. So you need to add the following command parameters to the additional commands section of the debug configuration. The GDB command line option is: -uBlankFlaskFill= BB with the blank fill value being 0xBB. Specifying this value enables the feature, by default it is off.
IDE-30386 Creating RZ/G project lets you continue with no toolchain selected RZ/G Depending on the selected RZ/G device it is possible to create a project without the required toolchain. The RZ/G1 family uses the 32-bit Linaro and the RZ/G2 should use the 64-bit Linaro distribution. It also permits you to select a wrong combination of toolchain and device. If you select a project that needs one of these and it is not installed the project generator will let you proceed. This will mean your project will not build. Please download the correct toolchain and register it to fix this problem.
IDE-30258 ARM DS AC6 toolchain definition doesn't specify binary parser ARM LLVM Plugins The ARM compiler 6 CDT managed build toolchain definition in DS plugins version 5.23.1 do not specify a "targetPlatform" and therefore does not specify a "binaryParser". This causes AC6 projects to not have a binary parser specified by default which means the .axf build artifact is not detected as a binary by CDT.
IDE-30226 Cannot find binaries when debugging a project compiled with AC6 Debugging RA When using the Flexible Software Pack (FSP) and the RA family with the AC6 compiler when trying to debug you may see the error: No binaries found To overcome this issue please update the debug configuration as follows: Debug Configuration ->Renesas GDB Hardware Debugging -> Main -> C/C++ Applications -> Paste path to binary file (*.axf).
IDE-30209 Eventpoints of RH850 are not restored correctly Debugging RH850 RH850 event points are not restored correctly on subsequent debug sessions. You will need to re-set the event points on subsequent debug launches.
IDE-30101 GUI will be not responding when scrolling after filter on Trace Trace plugin When doing filter with big Trace Capacity (Trace Capacity > 1M), the filter job does not work, and you may see a TimeOutException. After that, if you do scroll Trace View, e2 studio will crash. Workaround: If the see TimeOutExecption when doing filter, wait about some minutes (~10 minutes) for the filter job finishes, then change the displayed mode (enable or disable one of BUS/DIS/SRC modes), filter result will be displayed and you can scroll Trace view as usual.
IDE-30018 Console Find fails to report items which are indeed present Eclipse Platform Sometimes attempting to find some text in the Console view, using the Find/Replace dialog, fails. The workaround is to select in the Console you wish to find in, then attempt the find.
IDE-29841 User dictionary setup is not clear Application When setting up a User Dictionary it is necessary to select "C/C++ spelling engine" in the Spelling preferences page before selecting the dictionary file
IDE-29797 [Synergy-Linker Script] Error message is NOT shown when create duplicate Memory section on Graphical editor Linker Script Editor If a duplicated memory section name is created in the graphical linker editor it does not warn the user.
IDE-28705 e2 studio crash relating to threads shown in debugger view GDB Server Synergy In some circumstances, when operating with many ThreadX threads that are also using large structures it can cause problems when refreshing the debug view after the debugger is suspended. In some cases the e2 studio application may appear to freeze and become unresponsive. if this is happening then the best method is to go to the Debug Configuration->Debug Tool Settings and switch off the RTOS Integration in the Debug View.
IDE-28660 Trace does not show label for RZ/T1-QSPI project Debugging RZ In some cases when using the RZ/T1 device with the QSPI project, trace results do not appear to be correct. In some cases labels are not shown correctly and instead we get multiple instances of the address 0xFFFFFF0.
IDE-28503 GDB Simulator Debugging (RH850) fails GDB RH850 The simulator provided in the RH850 GDB will not 100% operate as a functional simulator for RH850. The implementation is not complete.
IDE-28354 "script" folder is not a source folder Renesas Synergy When using the Synergy device family with SSP the "script" folder, which contains the linker script files is not configured as a source folder. This means that this file when modified does not cause a rebuild of the project. Please clean your project and then rebuild it to avoid problems.
IDE-27850 CoreSight ITM: trace table disappear suddenly Trace - CoreSight Plugin When the content of the trace data is changed, the user is asked to refresh the updated data. After the update, the trace data editor is closed. The user needs to open the editor again to see the updated trace data.
IDE-26789 [CG] the value of "Clock Generator"/"Peripheral function used" is shown inconsistently on 2 views (Code Preview and Peripheral Functions) Code Generator plugin Even though a periperal is used, it's peripheral infomation is empty on Code Preview property. e.g.) Step1/ Create a project using Code generator Step2/ Open the project on Project Explorer Step3/ [Code Generator]/[Code Preview]/[Clock Generator] -> right click and choose [Property] Expected: The value of 'Peripheral function used' is 'Used'. Actual: The value of 'Peripheral function used' is empty.
IDE-26561 BRAVO project cannot execute Pre-build steps/Post-build steps with executing Build. IAR plugins Workaround is to switch off parallel build (project properties > C/C++ Build > Behavior tab > Enable parallel build set to unticked). After this workaround is performed, Pre-build steps and Post-build steps are executed during a build.
IDE-26355 Build fail with S1JA project Renesas Synergy Please note that the S1JA device is only supported by GCC in SSP 1.6 or later. Earlier than that it was supported by the IAR toolchain only.
IDE-25949 Project type -> IAR RX Executable missing IAR plugins Users are struggling to locate the IAR project generation menu items. The procedure for finding this is as follows: Just to check are you following these steps: File->New->C/C++ Project Click "C Managed Build" Click Next Find the IAR (Executable) entry
IDE-25569 Build fails when import a project with blank character in the project name IAR plugins When using the IAR plugins with a Synergy device if the project name has a space within it will cause the build to fail. The build will fail with and error regarding missing header files.
IDE-25513 Disassemble view is not updated when re-downloading during debugger connection. CDT When redownloading a download module after rebuilding it the disassembly and other views may display old data until manually refreshed.
IDE-25438 Debugger is disconnected when entering software standby mode. GDB Server RZ When using the RZ and debugging with J-link if the device enters software standby mode the J-link is disconnected.
IDE-25376 e2 studio ThreadX control symbol addresses update when loading multiple elf files. GDB When using Synergy with ThreadX debugging problems can be caused when using multiple load modules. Subsequent changes to the ThreadX table are not recognised by the debugger and this can cause incorrect thread data to be displayed. To avoid this ensure the ThreadX table data is within the first load module downloaded by e2 studio. If this does not remedy the issue you can disable the Debug view ThreadX debugging within the debug configuration.
IDE-25278 IAR synergy ELF files don't have a .text section Renesas Synergy When loading Symbols from multiple .elf files compiled using the IAR toolchain, the user will need to add ".text" before place in FLASH_region command inside the .icf Script. e.g. {code} ".text": place in FLASH_region { block LOCK_LOOKUP, ro, ro section .rodata, block QSPI_NON_RETENTIVE_INIT_BLOCK, block RAM_INIT_CODE, block USB_DEV_DESC_BLK }; {code}
IDE-25273 Files not updated when changing the device ARM GCC Plugins When changing the device from a RZ/A1 and attempting to swap to a RZ/T1 the device migration is not successful. The source code is not migrated successfully and the build fails. This is due to the different start-up code structure between these devices. In this case please create a new project and copy the required source to the newly created project.
IDE-25145 NullPointerException generated after excluding resource from build RX GCC build plugin When using the RX GCC builder and excluding either a .s or .SRC file from your project it can cause a null pointer exception on a subsequent rebuild.
IDE-25087 Opening Measure Current Consumption View and then terminating debug session causes e2 studio to crash. Current Consumption View Opening Measuring Current Consumption (QE) view might cause e2 studio to not function properly any more and a restart might be required.
IDE-24867 Mouse over of variable crashes GDB server or makes e2 studio hang CDT With certain projects that use RTOS Integration in Debug View and expose Threads that contain only the 0xfffffffe frame in the Debug Tree View, mouse hovering over strings or macros defined as strings can cause the debug session to become unresponsive or GDB to crash.
IDE-24657 ITM Live Trace does not work after Trace (The Trace View) is enabled (even if it is disabled) Debugging Synergy The ITM Live Trace view does not work after the Trace is enabled in the standard Trace Window. Even if it is subsequently disabled. Terminating and re-starting the debug session with trace disabled in the trace window will then re-enable ITM Live Trace output.
IDE-23373 Run commands behaviour after a reset from the UI is not consistent Application The GDB run commands which are setup on the debug configuration are not consistently applied. After the connection process they work correctly however on subsequent debugger reset operations the result is inconsistent.
IDE-23242 Rename and Import of 6.2 project into 7.x, then upgrade SSP, selects different pin configuration Renesas Synergy In the Synergy Configuration editor, when upgrading SSP version, or changing Board, where the selected device is not the default device for the selected Board, an incorrect Pin Configuration may be selected on the Pins tab. If upgrading SSP version or changing Board when in the Configuration editor, please check that the required Pin Configuration is still selected on the Pins tab. If not, re-select the required Pin Configuration from the drop-list.
IDE-23028 Minimum and Maximum value are always 0 Coverage plugin When using Data Coverage to collect variables information, Maximum and Minimum column are always zero, this issue occurs on all supported devices
IDE-22881 The TB_S3A6 & TB_S5D5 are breakdown with IAR building problem Renesas Synergy When converting from a project building with the IAR v7.x builder to using the IAR v8.x builder problems can occur. It has been noted that in some situations the linker file points to an incorrect linker file. e.g. After importing the project the Linker configuration file is set to "${workspace_loc:/${ProjName}/script/S5D5. When switching the tool chain to 8.x the linker configuration file is set to ${sdkLocation}/config/generic.icf Changing the linker file path back to the originally selected one should resolve this build error.
IDE-22657 Profile shows wrong data for RH850 GDB Server RH850 When measuring Profile with RH850, wrong measurement result may be displayed. Profile measures based on Trace data, but there is no problem with Trace data.
IDE-21737 RZ/A serial launch with Linux target doesn't show console output from target Debugging RZ Linux With ethernet based connections for Linux target debugging, e2 studio starts GDB server and captures output of the process. With Linux target, serial connection GDB server is started but the console output is not captured.
IDE-21649 [Breakpoint] Invalid breakpoint warning is lost after using Move To Line CDT After a move to line operation in the debugger the source window is updated and breakpoint warning markers are removed from view.
IDE-21616 Connection will fail if max+1 breakpoints are set. Debugger If setting breakpoint is failed, the breakpoint is marked as exclamation in the editor view (or marked as un-checked in breakpoint view). In this case, if debugger is disconnected and re-connected, connection will fail. To avoid this, please remove the failed breakpoints before connection. And also, this will happen if "Set breakpoint at" is checked in the debug configuration, when the flash programming is disabled. In this case, please set the check OFF before connection.
IDE-21601 RZ/A serial COM port doesn't work if port number is greater than 9 Debugging RZ Linux RZ/A serial COM port does not work if the port number is greater than 9. If Windows assign device USB COM port to 10 or above, then gdb can't find the port. gdb shows, "No such file or directory"
IDE-21522 Previous toolchain version shown in build settings if changing configurations after clicking "Apply" Managed Build In the build settings dialog if you select a new build configuration, or try to select the current configuration again after changing the toolchain version you will see the previously selected toolchain version displayed. To avoid this either click "Apply and Close" after selecting the new toolchain or click "Apply" then close the dialog.
IDE-20888 Add support for -mno-allow-string-insns in code generator Code Generator plugin Code Generator for RX doesn't support '-mno-allow-string-insns' of GCC compiler option. Selecting '-mno-allow-string-insns' causes a buid error about 'smovf' instruction in 'r_cg_reset_program.asm'.

IDE-18830 IO Registers accessed with disregard for initial setup of register IO view plugin There is an issue that the reset values of a peripheral register that were different than the user manual was stating. The root cause is that the IO register view in the debugger does not validate the MSTP register settings before presenting the data for the peripheral that is being viewed.
IDE-18748 RL78 Plug-in Fails in Debug Mode Unless Code Generator is added to Project IAR plugins When creating a IAR RL78 project (v3.10.1) for the E1 emulator and the RL78 G14 device the debugger connection does not work correctly. As a workaround adding the code generator to the project and setting the debugger to "Used" will configure the start-up code and project to be debugged successfully. The IAR ILINK command file provides #define __RESERVE_OCD_ROM to allocate ROM area for debugging, however adding this into the settings still does not allow a successful connection.
IDE-18693 [FFW] Current consumption issues for RX100 and RX200 Device Support RX 1. Only the "USER I/F" is supported for power supply interface. Cannot be used with "E2 expansion I/F". 2.

IDE-18639 Incremental build can break after renaming or copying a project CDT After renaming or copying a project incremental build might be broken & the project will perform a full build every time. If this occurs then: 1. Open project proprieties & go to the "C/C++ Build" -> "Refresh Policy" 2. Delete the old name of project folder, then add the new project name.
IDE-18623 [RL78] Strange behavior with hardware breakpoint Debugging RL In case of using RL78, hardware breakpoint is realized by execution address after PC. This will cause several issues: - Temporary hardware breakpoint will not be removed after the breakpoint is hit. Therefore, the breakpoint will always hit. Please remove the temporary breakpoint manually after the breakpoint hits. - In case of RL78/G10 (or RL78 devices which flash programming is disabled), software breakpoint is not supported. Therefore, temporary hardware breakpoint will be used for the cases: * Stepping over * Stepping return * Run to line * "Set breakpoint at" is specified in the debug configuration * etc When using these operations, if breakpoints are used in the debugging program, the operation will fail. Please release 1 or more breakpoint before the operation. And please invoke GDB command 'delete breakpoints' in Debugger Console view to remove the breakpoint after the program is suspended by "Set breakpoint at main". If the breakpoint is kept as it is, it will always hit and the next operation such as stepping return or stepping over may fail because no breakpoints can be used for the operation.
IDE-18606 E2 Studio "Console" view - "Renesas Debug Virtual Console" issues Debug Console plugin Renesas Debug Virtual Console's pin status will not be restored for next opening e2 studio. Please active and pin it manually before debugging to avoid loosing data.

Current Consumption View When using monitor point insertion with CCRL 1.05 or CCRX 2.08 for the Current Consumption View, if nop is not inserted at the top address of the line because of the code generation or optimization, setting monitor point will fail. In this case, please insert NOP() in the source code manually.
IDE-16926 Real-time update does not work when debugging multiple projects while one is suspended Visual Expressions plugin When debugging more than one project simultaneously Realtime Update will not work when any project is suspended.
IDE-16874 Cannot connect to RZ if "Image Only" is selected as Load Image Debug Configuration ADAS When writing the PC register, GDB needs to know in what mode it is ARM or Thumb. Usually this is obtained from the symbol information but since the symbols are not loaded ("image only") GDB tries to obtain this from the cpsr value from current frame. However in this case there is no frame information which causes an error. There is a workaround, we can tell GDB what mode we are running so it doesn't try to read the cpsr register: set arm fallback-mode (arm|thumb|auto) GDB uses the symbol table, when available, to determine whether instructions are ARM or Thumb. This command controls GDB’s default behavior when the symbol table is not available. The default is ‘auto’, which causes GDB to use the current execution mode (from the T bit in the CPSR register). This can be added to the GDB [Startup]/[Initialization Commands] section in the debug configuration
IDE-16830 The "Project Upgrade Required" pop-up does not appear on subsequent imports of the same project Managed Build The "Project Upgrade Required" pop-up does not appear on subsequent imports of the same project when you delete and re-import in the same session.

IDE-7423 Disassembly view does not always update on initial opening CDT In some cases, the disassembly view does not refresh correctly on suspend. When this problem happens refreshing the disassembly view does not fix the problem. To restore the functionality close and re-open the view.
IDE-7419 RL78 on-chip debugging and reserved areas problem Application In older versions of e2 studio the RL78 debugger would protect OCD memory areas for the E1 emulator. However in some cases this would cause issues. This is no longer done and GCC projects will work well. If you are using IAR projects this may cause some problems for your debugging. A new GDB monitor command has been added to protect/overwrite memory. This will allow the same behavior as e2 studio 3.x. e.g. monitor protect_memory, fef00, 100, ff Any attempt to write to address 0xfef00 to 0xfefff will cause 0xff to be written instead. A warning message will be shown in the GDB server console window. This can be added to the initialization commands within the debug configuration for the RL78 E1 emulator.
IDE-7412 Setting RL78 register fails GDB server RL78 When using RL78 the HL register value cannot be modified in some circumstances. This will only occur when bank 0 is not selected. Changing HL value only ever causes Bank 0 HL to change. View will always show current bank value. Values not in bank 0 can still be changed by accessing bank registers directly.
IDE-7403 Indexer setting not saved. CDT The setting 'Use a fixed build configuration' in the dialog, Properties->C/C++ General->Indexer is not saved when the user checks it. This can be caused by visiting the properties, modifying the indexer setting and then visiting settings. If you do not visit settings the option is stored correctly.
IDE-7277 [IAR][RL78] Linker extra options were not imported IAR plugins In some cases the IAR project importer does not perfectly import all set build options. One example is the -HFF command line option that can be specified in the command line options text box for the linker.

IDE-3389 Source Addresses: multiple debug contexts with same-named source file Application When debugging files with the same name show source addresses even though it may not be correct for the file in question. The full file path is not considered just the filename and current debug context. This can lead to e2 studio showing addresses unnecessarily.
IDE-2716 BeforePC events on IECube temporarily hardcoded limit of 4 GDB server RL78 Before PC events on IECube temporarily hard coded limit of 4.
IDE-2246 The RX simulator does not allow trigger count on data access events. Eventpoints plugin The trigger count for data access event for RX simulator will be ignored.
