With the SV18.104.22.168 Simplicity Studio release there was an update to the silink adapter pack. The adapter pack is used with the Network Analyzer, Energy Profiler and "Launch Console" functionality. The silink update included an update to the Segger JLink ARM library and unfortunately one of the symbolic links to that library was not updated.
This will result in errors if trying to run one of those tools. The error can also be seen from [Settings] > [Simplicity Studio] > [Adapter Packs] and then expanding the 'Silink adapter pack' entry:
By opening a terminal window it is easy to delete the bad symlink and then to add the correct symlink. After opening the terminal window issue a 'cd' command to change to the adapter pack directory ~/SimplicityStudio_v4/developer/adapter_packs/silink on Linux. Then delete the bad symlink and add the correct one:
ln -s libjlinkarm.so.6.22.4 libjlinkarm.so.6
Then do ls -l to verify the link has been fixed:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 USERNAME USERNAME 16 Dec 16 23:20 libjlinkarm.so -> libjlinkarm.so.6
lrwxrwxrwx 1 USERNAME USERNAME 21 Dec 16 23:20 libjlinkarm.so.6 -> libjlinkarm.so.6.18.3
-rwxr-xr-x 1 USERNAME USERNAME 18605120 Dec 4 04:02 libjlinkarm.so.6.22.4
Then restart Simplicity Studio and go back to the adapter pack folder and verify the issue has been resolved.
For MACOS, use libjlinkarm.6.dylib instead of libjlinkarm.so.6.
rm libjlinkarm.6.dylib ln -s libjlinkarm.6.22.4.dylib libjlinkarm.6.dylib
Also for Mac the libjlinkarm.dylib symlink should be to the 6.22.4.dylib not the 6.dylib, so these additional steps are needed:
ln -s libjlinkarm.6.22.4.dylib libjlinkarm.dylib
Sorry for the confusion this could have caused.
