Installation and Usage

The Getting Started Guide provides instructions on how to setup up your development environment, install the SDK and start your development.

To uninstall the SDK, remove the individual component directories from the installed path. This is safe to do even in Windows since these components do not modify the Windows registry.


Host Support

The recommended development host is

  • Windows: Windows 7 on 64-bit machine
  • Linux: Ubuntu 16.04 on 64-bit machine

To support legacy 32-bit machines, the installers are 32-bit. For Linux, run the below command to install the required 32-bit libraries needed by the Processor-SDK and Code Composer Studio v7.0.0:

sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libx11-6:i386 libasound2:i386 libatk1.0-0:i386 libcairo2:i386 libcups2:i386 libdbus-glib-1-2:i386 libgconf-2-4:i386 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0:i386 libgtk-3-0:i386 libice6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libsm6:i386 liborbit2:i386 libudev1:i386 libusb-0.1-4:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libxt6:i386 libxtst6:i386 libgnomeui-0:i386 libusb-1.0-0-dev:i386 libcanberra-gtk-module:i386 gtk2-engines-murrine:i386
