    hex2bix does not recognize ...

    please help me how can i convert my hex file to .iic :(

    I've never seen 'hextobix' but there used to be a program called 'hextobin'. Are you sure you got the program name correct?

    I don't know the '.iic' format, maybe it isn't a standard .hex file which has line headers, address and data fields and CRC stored as text.

    Yes. Hex2bix is an application provided by cypress. This app converts hex file to standard eeprom file.

    Obviously the location where hex2bix.exe resides isn't in the path. Either add it or execute it with a full path specification.

    i think the path is right. i set the path just like the picture. the program runs but it seems that hex2bix doesn't accept any input Click image for larger version.

    The screenshot in post #1 tells something different.

    You did not set the path. You are trying to run hex2bix from your working directory but it's not recognized. You need to enter hex2bix with the full path as in the first call plus the argument, with your work directory being the current directory. Something about "first steps when using the windows (or linux) cmd shell".

    Re: Problem with hex2bix utility(does't run)

    Hi,

    To avoid path problems:
    * Copy your source file to the hex2bix directory
    * use the "cd" command to go to the hex2bix path
    * run the hex2bix program without additional paths
