If multiple versions of winIDEA must be used, it is recommended that each winIDEA uses its own CPU database.
This is the default setting, which can be verified by checking the option Always use SFRs distributed with winIDEA in Debug menu / Debug Options / SFRs.
CPU database file (SFRv2.7z) is unpacked at the first start of winIDEA to the ISYSTEM_TEMP folder (if specified), which is named JP30_SFR_<winIDEA version> (e.g. JP30_SFR_9.17.147). If multiple winIDEA versions are used, each will have its own folder.
It is advised to always use SFRs matching the winIDEA you are using. CPU database holds important information for SFR Window, as well as information required to successfully establish debug session, program flash etc.
