Projects that have been created using PM+ can be ported to the e² studio environment in either of the following ways.
- Convert an existing project to create a new project with CS+, and then convert the project to a new e² studio project
- Create a new project in e² studio and register existing source files
|Process||Convert an Existing Project||Create a New Project|
|Source file registration||Automatic||Manual|
|Option setting||(Partially) automatic||Manual|
|Source file folder location||Automatic||No care needs to be taken regarding the file registration location.|
|Conflict between source files and automatically generated files||Files should be modified after a project is created.||Care should be taken regarding conflict at manual file registration.|
Convert an Existing Project to Create a New Project With CS+, and Then Convert the Project to a New e² studio Project
Direct conversion of projects for PM+ into projects for the e² studio is not possible.
Use the function for converting projects for use with CS+ to convert the project into a CS+ project for the given microcontroller, and then importing project it to the e² studio.
