There are two types of installers:

  • Web installers will allow you to perform an install using an installer controlled download process that will only download needed software components. An internet connection is mandatory at install time.
  • Off-line installers are a large archive (about 730MB). When you run it you can select the components to be installed. No internet connection is required at install time. The executable can be used for installing multiple local systems.

If you have an issue with the web installer not being able to connect to the internet then please try the off-line installer. If you need to update a computer that does not have internet access then download the offline installer and then transfer it to the computer without access and use the offline installer to update your installation.

  • WARNING:
    • If you had installed 5.1.0.09000 from the so-called "web installer" download, instead of the "offline installer", you may encounter issues applying 5.1.1 automatic patch update.  If this is the case, please download the Windows offline installer for 5.1.1 (Build # 5.1.1.00031) and install this image atop of your existing 5.1.0 installation, at the same location (you do not have to uninstall 5.1.0 prior to overinstalling 5.1.1).
    • There was a 5.1.1.00028 posted previously. The only difference between that build and this one is the location of some simulator files. This build (5.1.1.00031) corrects the location so that the simulators are visible in CCS.
  • Installation
    • The offline installer is the complete DVD image in an archive file.  Extract this and you can run the setup program to install CCS.

Code Composer Studio Version 4 Downloads

This page provides access to current and past download images for Code Composer Studio.  The latest link will always be at the top but you can use the other links to download specific versions.  For each version are two CCS images that can be downloaded, DVD image and Microcontroller Core.  The DVD image is what you get when you buy CCS regardless of which license type purchased and the Microcontroller Core version is the code size limited tool. For updates to BIOS, IPC, XDCtools please go here.

Unless you want code size limited tools then download the full DVD image.

Requirements to Download: You will need a my.TI login to download CCS.  If you don't already have one you will be given the opportunity to create one on the login screen. The other thing you will go through when you download CCS is US Export control screening, a questionnaire will appear with some questions that need to be answered.  If approved the system will email you the download link.  If you are an IE8 user make sure to say "No" to the prompt if you want to view secure content only. 

Notice to Windows 7 / 64 bits users: CCSv4.x releases have a known drawing issue on the Project Build properties that can only be partially solved by a patch to the SWT component. Therefore it is recommended to use CCSv5.1 for this OS. For details please check this forum thread

Latest production image is 4.2.4.00033.
