Software Flash Memory Breakpoints->Reset after Download

During the initial download, the code programmed into flash does not contain any HALT instructions.  It is only after the download process that the Embedded Development Studio tells the debugger where the source level breakpoints are located.  When the debugger receives this information it will reprogram the appropriate sectors.   It is important to note that if the Reset after Download option is checked then this initial reprogramming process is likely to fail.  For instance with on-chip flash neither FLASHBAR or CFMCLKD valid and with off-chip flash the chip selects may not be appropriately configured.  Therefore to successfully use software flash memory breakpoints, the Reset after Download option should be unchecked.
