Connected Components Workbench (CCW) version 7.0 added some much needed features when it released back in September of 2014.
One of those welcome features was a context-sensitive device menu for accessing common tasks.
In today's article, I show you how to use that menu to change the controller type (aka Micro800 model) of an existing program in just three easy steps.
Step 1) Open Micro800 project, right click on controller and select change
The first step is to open your Micro800 project in Connected Components Workbench (CCW) version 7.0 or 8.0.
Once open, right click on the Micro800 controller which is found at the top of the Project Organizer on the left of the screen.
Now from the right click menu choose “Change Controller” as seen below:
NOTE: The change controller feature in CCW version 7 and 8 does not support the Micro810. To work around this, export your Micro810 project and them import it into a new project setup for the new controller you wish to change to.
Step 2) Choose new controller and click Ok
Once step one is complete, you should see a “Controller Change” popup window.
On the left side of this window you should see a dropdown list for the “Target” “Controller Type.”
To continue, click on the drop down list and select the Micro800 controller you would like your program changed to, as seen below:
NOTE: If you are using CCW version 7, the “change to” version will be 7. If you are using CCW version 8, the “change to” version will be 8.
Step 3) Verify change was successful
I hope you found the above article about how to change a Connected Components Workbench's controller type helpful.
