Moving project folders from CCS4 workspace

Recommended Posts

I generally organize project code independent from the tools used to create them, along with other documentation such as datasheets, notes, photos, etc. With TI's Code Composer Studio 4, this is unfortunately not simply a matter of opening a project file in an arbitrary location. All projects are stored in "the workspace", most likely set up in "My Documents".


My first internet search brought up http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php ... e_Projects . I did not want to recreate a project in order to move it to a different place.


If you are using Windows 7, symlinks* seem to be a method to move a project's firmware out of the CCS workspace. It did not work on the first attempt, but after trying to set up a new workspace containing one of the moved projects and switching back to the original, the project was found in the project navigator pane.


* possibly requiring NTFS: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTFS_symbolic_link

I could not get the symlink to work for another project..


Note that you should not rename a project directory outside CCS4.

If the project is not found inside the 'remote' location, try to change the workspace there, and import and rename the project.

While I am not able to symlink this project dir to the standard workspace, at least I can work on the project!
