    I followed the tutorial from here:  and there are numerous compilations errors…

    1) I cloned the Git repo using the command provided
    2) Opened it in Visual Studios 2019 (which has VisualGDB 5.5R5 installed).  It couldn’t find MinGW, so I had it automatically install the 32-bit version
    3) It said it needed the sysprogs CMake extensions, so I installed those.
    4) Hit build and got compilation error in ti_icdi_usb.c, as a function header used ‘unsigned’ when the function caller was expected ‘int’.  I changed the function definition to be int and hit compile.  Got some new errors about ARMV7M_S0 not being defined and “no member named ‘stlink’ in ‘struct armv7m_common’ ”


    Does the cloned OpenOCD project not compile and I have to make a couple of changes or am I doing something fundamentally wrong?



    Most likely, you are building the deprecated HLA_Multicore platform. Please try switching it to Mainstream via the VS platform selector.

    We have also just updated the repository, removing the HLA_Multicore platform completely.


    Yup, I was indeed building the MultiCore platform, didn’t even notice that there were multiple ones to choose from.  Switching to Mainstream threw an error in the same spot, so I did a fresh clone and it now builds *almost* everything.  I’m not entire sure what it’s attempting to do so I’m not sure where to go to try and fix it.

    Nevermind, figured it out.  Turns out things work better when you modify your path so that things from 2007 aren’t before more recent installs  (also adding the \bin folder for those recent installs to the path..)
