Hi all,
I am testing a MCB2100 board connected to my computer via a Keil ULink,
and it works fine with Keil's uVision loader, but I need to evaluate
other tools, and whenever I try to use any other tool for communicating
with the board it would give always a communications error... anyone
knows if the ULink is designed to work -ONLY- with keil software?
...anyone has used an ULink with any other software?

Thanks a lot!

Some time ago (a year or so) I have asked Keil-Software about
information/documentation on the ULINK protocol. The support-guy told me
that ULINK is for uVision only and that the information on the protocol
is only for internal use and will not be published. So yes, the ULINK
has been designed to work only with the Keil software, which does not
meas that it can not be used with other software - but I also don't know
any non-Keil software which works with the ULINK. If you do not need the
debugging and just want to use the ULINK as flash-programming tool you
can call uVision with command-line options - see the uVision online-help
and the Keil support-database.

Thanks a lot for your answer, (it's bad news for me but at least I wont
waste more time trying to connect to the board via the ULINK)
