Technical Questions & Repairs

Report a technical issue

  1. Go to Help/Support/Technical support… dialog in winIDEA to generate a Support (WSB) file.
  2. Depending on the issue, include the following files in the WSB file:
    • Download file - for general issues. We will run your application and try to reproduce your issues. A minimal sample application that reproduces the issues is usually enough for us to solve them. We have signed NDAs with most of our customers for this particular purpose.
    • Trace recording (.trd file) - for trace related issues
  3. Attach the WSB file to your communications with iSYSTEM Support staff. We will use the support file to replicate and inspect your workspace settings. The crash dump file is also located in the WSB.
  4. In addition to the WSB file, you can also attach the following attachments to your communication:
    • ORTI file or/and an OS description XML file - for operating system related issues
    • iyaml file - for testIDEA related issues
    • Python script - for isystem.connect issues
  5. Please provide a detailed description of your problem. Following information will speed up resolving your issues:
    • Hardware type and winIDEA version.
    • The exact steps to reproduce the issue.
    • Has the problematic functionality ever worked in the past? If it did, what changed?
    • Do you have any internal or external watchdogs enabled?
    • In case of HW issues, have you tried switching HW combinations (cable, adapter, emulator, target, PSU)? A photo of your setup.
    • A schematic of your target board.

Failing to provide all the needed information in this step will result in additional correspondence and prolonging the time to solution of your issues.
