Error in Flash Loader Input Generation: X-NUCLEO-GFX01M2 with NUCLEO-G071RB and IAR

Thinker

Hi,

I have the task of connecting the X-NUCLEO-GFX01M2 to the NUCLEO-G071RB via the SPI interface to display, for example, "Hello World" on the screen. I am supposed to use IAR for this purpose. I have an example code from the official ST website that does exactly what I need. However, when I try to implement it, I consistently receive the error message: "There were warnings while generating flash loader input, see the Debug log window for details." Is it possible that I need TouchGFX, or can the task be accomplished without TouchGFX? Or why i get this message?

Hello @Thinker ,
I'm not sure about the process you are taking and the project you are using. I think it should be possible to complete your project without TouchGFX. However, you can easily use TouchGFX to complete your task in a short amount of time because an IAR project will be created automatically when you select a Board Setup through the Designer. 
It is possible for you to have a TouchGFX project next to your preferred settings for you STM32CubeMX project. So, no worries in this regard :D 

 

Don't hesitate to ask more questions about TouchGFX

Not sure of the exact mechanics with IAR but it needs a .MAC file describing how to manage the programming of the QSPI / SPI NOR Flash on the graphics shield board.

Via STM32 Cube Programmer this would be an External Loader
