MacOS Host Support CCSv8

From Texas Instruments Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search



This page contains information regarding Code Composer Studio v8 running on MacOS. It includes installation instructions, device support and debug probe support. CCS is tested with the most current version of MacOS and previous version at the time of release.

Download and Install

Proceed with instructions for download and install shown in the CCSv6 Getting Started Guide.

Note if you do not have adminstrative rights on your Mac then you will need to run the installer with a command that looks like this: xattr -r -d If you do not do that then MacOS will copy the executable to another folder and run it from there, as a result the installer will not be able to find the offline files and will run as a web installer.


Run <installdir>/ccsv8/ If the uninstaller does not complete successfully, it’s safe to delete everything under the <installdir>/ccsv8 directory to complete the uninstall.
