MPLAB-X FreeRTOS viewer - no PIC32MX tasks ?

Posted by Dave Nadler on January 4, 2013
Hi - Sorry if this is a dumb question. I'm using:
- MPLAB-X (Microchip new Sun-based IDE - NetBeans)
- FreeRTOS viewer downloaded from Microchip site
- Microchip PIC32MX795 project on PIC32MX USB Starter Kit II board
- FreeRTOS V7.3.0
FreeRTOS works great, but I see no tasks in viewer window.

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but any suggestions as
to what I'm doing wrong ?

Thanks !
Best Regards, Dave

I have not used the state viewer with the MPLAB X, only MPLAB 8, but I think it is safe to assume you should be able to see the tasks in the viewer whatever the configuration of the FreeRTOSConfig.h file.

You will only be able view queues if you set configQUEUE_REGISTRY_SIZE to a positive number, and add queues to the registry with the vQueueAddToRegistry() API function.

I will try and find out about the status of the MPLAB X plug-in.

Regards.

Hi Richard - Any chance to look at this ?
Thanks !
Best Regards, Dave

PS: The Eclipse Plug-in works great under in NXP's LPCXpresso package !

Just pinged again, and was told that it was not an officially supported product, but was pointed to the following URL for the latest. Is this the one you are using?

Hi Richard - I'm not sure. As usual with Microchip web sites, I cannot figure out how to download the plug-in from the site. In any case, I've delivered the project and won't have a PIC32MX back on my desk for a while now, so can't investigate further...
Thanks anyway,
Best Regards, Dave
