Hi PaBo_4310606​,

I am not much clear with your question but I think you are asking about the .hex file generation.

Once you build any program using Make Target in WICED Studio, .hex and other related files (.hcd, .o) are generated inside Build folder in Project Explorer.

Hi SheetalJ_96

That's correct, I'm looking for the generated .hex file I can use to flash the target device, but I can't find it in the Build folder.

When I build with WICED Studio, I can see  only .bin, .elf. E.g.:

build/apps.my_app/binary/my_app.bin

build/apps.my_app/binary/my_app.elf

Can you send me your MakeTarget? Do a Clean first and then try building the app.

Hi SheetalJ_96

My target is of the form demo.my_app-MY_PLATFORM and running a clean build doesn't seem to generate a .hex file.

I've tried the same with one of the WICED sample projects - demo.appliance-CYW943907AEVAL1F - and I can't find the .hex file.

Could it be a makefile or WICED setting to toggle .hex generation?

I thought you are using Cypress BT/BLE discrete device. I will check with WiFi team about your problem and update you.
