Fixed Keil uVision’s Debug auto exit
After a while of getting acquainted with ARM, specifically, the Tiva C series of Texas Instruments encountered many big and small errors. In it, when programming with Keil uVision, I encountered a very annoying error that could not be debugged. After researching and researching, I finally fixed this error, so I will share it so that anyone who encounters it will know how to fix it.

Fixed Keil uVision’s Debug exiting
After the compilation is complete, I proceed to download the code to the launchpad,
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling version 4 but it still didn’t fix the problem, switching to Keil uVision 5, and the error was gone, but it didn’t take long to stick and even if I uninstalled and reinstalled it, I still got the error!
Note: This error usually only happens to those who use windows 8 ( including 64bit and 32bit ).) only, on windows 7 I have not seen it, so if you use windows 7 and get an error, try the method below to see how it works!
First, open the Registry by pressing the Windows + Q button to open the search dialog box or Windows + R to open the Run box, then type: Regedit and press enter.
The UAC window appears, select Yes to confirm opening the Registry.
Looking at the directory tree on the left, you point to the following path:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Windows NT CurrentVersion AppCompatFlags Layers
After pointing to the Layers folder, you look in the right pane and you will see the key C:KeilUV4UV4.exe
Depending on the version of Keil uVision and your installation options, this key name may change slightly, but basically, there are still some keywords like Keil, UV4.exe, or UV5.exe ( Keil uVision 5 )
You proceed to delete this key, then reboot the machine is done!
The debugging process will go smoothly as usual! I have successfully applied this method and have not seen the error reappear.
