Hello, I am trying to control a robot arm with a stm8s discovery. I got the board as well as the users manual. The manual tells me to first install ST visual develop, and then Cosmic compiler.

I was supposed to go to http://www.st.com/stonline/products/support/micro/files/sttoolset.exe , but it redirected me to http://www.st.com/stonline/stappl/resourceSelector/app?page=resourceSelector&doctype=TOOLSET&FamilyID=141

I downloaded the "ST9 software toolchain" supposedly carrying the STVD9. I then downloaded cosmic compiler. All this has been done on a windows XP computer as well as a windows 7 computer.

On the windows 7 computer I can't open .stw -files correctly. The Debug_instrument>Target_settings is all gray to me. If I open options the program crashes.

On the windows XP computer I can load workspaces. Though, it says that the file's version was unrecognised and I cannot write anything in the source files. Neither do I get the Swim-st-link or what it now is  called in Debug_instrument>target_settings. All there is is "HDS2v2".

I don't really know what else to do, any help is highly appreciated
