Error Message-Memory area error. It overlaps the system range_E8_E8a

Last Updated:10/11/2017

Question:

When using the E8 or E8a emulator to download a program to the target MCU, I get the following error.
"Memory area error. It overlaps the system range. "
What is the problem and how do I work around it?

Answer:

This error is displayed when a user program is downloaded to an address that overlaps with the firmware address.
Either change the firmware address so that it does not overlap the firmware area*, or change the assigned address for the user program.
Set the firmware address in the [Firmware Location] tab under [Emulator Setting] which is displayed during boot up.

*Note:When using a H8 Family MCU, change the assigned address for the user program because you cannot use the [Firmware Location] tab under [Emulator Setting].
