  1. Run SetupCCSPlatinum_v30XYY.exe, Where X is the CCS version and YY is the driver release version. Each version is tailored to the specific version of CCS with respect to the drivers and CCS configuration files installed.  However you can install a higher version CCS driver release version into an older CCS 3.x path if desired.
  2. If using an XDS510USB emulator, unplug and replug the USB cable to force a complete driver update.
  3. If this is first time install of the XDS510USB hardware then Windows will pop up the Hardware Install Wizard to install USB drivers.  If this occurs you need to direct the wizard to look in the directory <CCS_INSTALLDIR>\specdig\xds510usb to find the USB .inf/.sys files.  Once Windows has completed the hardware setup, unplug and replug the USB cable.


  1. If you intend to use CCS 3.x and a previous version of CCS on the same PC with a XDS510USB then make sure you disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to the XDS510USB between CCS sessions.  This will maintain the necessary relationship between two different CCS driver stacks.  You must also select the correct SdConfig for the current CCS focus.  That is select ”SdConfig v3.2” if using CCS 3.2.  SdConfig will automatically load emulation drivers if they are not already loaded to the XDS510USB so you must select the SdConfig for the CCS you are targeting.
  2. If you are installing SD CCS 3.2 drivers into a CCS 3.1 environment make sure you uninstall your CCS 3.1 drivers first.
  3. If you inadvertently install an older version of drivers after your CCS 3.2 driver install then CCS will most likely fail on startup for C64Plus and DaVInici targets. To correct this problem you will need to uninstall and reinstall your CCS 3.2 drivers.

Where to find things

Under the installation directory, <INSTALL_DIR> you can find the following:
