With version 9.21 winIDEA IDE confronted a few changes. Refer to winIDEA Help for more information. One of the changes affected commands Load Code and Load Symbols.
Configuration for Download Files (Load Code) and Symbol Files (Load Symbols) was accessible from a single menu Debug menu / Files for Download / Edit.
The configuration is done via two separate menus to accommodate the software design of complex SoCs.
To load symbols the symbol file has to be configured via Debug menu / Session Configuration / Applications / Symbol Files).
To load code the download file has to be configured via Debug menu / Session Configuration / SoCs / Program Files).
Please be advised that if you use the same ELF file for code and symbols, you will have to change the file at both locations if you want to use a different file.
