Overview

Porting from CS+ to the e² studio

Projects that have been created using CS+ can be ported to the e² studio 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.

Converting a CS+ Project Into an e² studio Project

CA78K0R (Note1), CC-RL, and CC-RX projects from CS+ can be converted into projects of the e² studio by using the function for importing projects to the e² studio. Please also read "Project Conversion between CS+ and e² studio, Notes and Tips" to find workarounds for limitations about project migration between CS+ and e² studio.
