Migrating between Integrated Development Environments


Porting from the e² studio to CS+

Projects that have been created using the e² studio can be ported to the CS+ environment in either of the following two ways.

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+

CC-RL and CC-RX projects created in the e² studio can be converted into CS+ projects by using the export function of the e² studio to output them as Renesas common project files (*.rcpc).

Procedures (Go to Step 3 if the *.rcpc file has been generated in the project folder.)

  1. Select a project in the e² studio, right-click to produce the pop-up menu, and select [Export…].
  1. Select [Renesas Common Project File] as the destination for export and output the project file.
  1. Specify the exported project file (*.rcpc) from the project that is to be converted for CS+. Select [Open Existing e² studio/CubeSuite/High-performance Embedded Workshop/PM+ Project] in the startup screen of CS+.
  1. Select “Project File for e² studio (*.rcpc)".
Select "Project File for e² studio (*.rcpc)"
  1. Select a project that is to be converted in the [Project Convert Settings] dialog box of CS+. Then, specify [Microcontroller], [Kind of project], [Project name], and [Place] that are used in the converted project. After that, Converting the project starts once you click on [OK].

Create a New Project in CS+ and Register Existing Source Files

  1. Click on [Create New Project] in the startup screen of CS+.
  1. In the [Create Project] dialog box of CS+, select the type of microcontroller in [Microcontroller] and the particular device in [Using microcontroller], labeled (1) and (2) at right, set a name for the project in [Project name] and the place where it is to be stored in [Place], both labeled (3), and then click on the [Create] button.
  • For example, select [RH850] and [RH850/E1L] for [Microcontroller] and [Using microcontroller], respectively.

  1. Add the existing source files to the file branch of the [Project Tree]. New files can also be added.
  • You can also add files by dragging and dropping on the file category in the project tree.
