MCU-SDK: mcusdk.exe doesn't start

Hi!

Id like to program the MCU on the Edison board, but I have problems in getting the MCU SDK to run.

I've done all steps from https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/545143# installing_mcu_sdk_windows here. But when I try to start the mcusdk.exe, like described https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/545143# running_eclipse here, the Windows

pops ot and closes instantly.

What can I do?

Hi Christoph.P,

What OS are you using? Are you using a 32 bit or a 64 bit? What happens when you double click on cygwin_setup.bat? What system variable name have you used, you can see the name and the value in step 20.

In the MCU folder, what does the error.log file contains?

  • OS: Windows 10 (64-Bit)
  • cygwin_setup.bat went well as far as I can says it
  • JRE_HOME is set to "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7" (this is in fact where my JRE is installed)
  • error.log says "Please install cygwin."

I've done that (again). But with no effort. I manually downlaoded and used the version https://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe setup-x86_64.exe

from https://cygwin.com/install.html here

I found a thread with a similar issue to yours. The solution was to create a folder named MCU in C:\ and put all the files there.

Let me know if this works.

No this doesn't change the problem.

An issue I have encountered when installing the mcu is spaces in the location of the sdk files. For example C:/Users/This is a test/mcu folder. I'd suggest to include underscores instead of spaces.
