Setting a Breakpoint on an Instruction Address

To set an address breakpoint on an assembler instruction, halt the target and double-click the marker bar located in the left margin in the Disassembly view. A new software breakpoint is created by default and displayed in the Breakpoints view. You can also see information about a particular breakpoint by hovering over its icon in the beginning of a corresponding code line.
Alternatively, follow these steps to set an address breakpoint:
  1. Halt the target by pressing the
    Suspend button.
  2. In the Breakpoints view, click the
    Add Breakpoint button.
    Alternatively, click
    view menu
    View Menu and select
    Add System Debug Breakpoint.
  3. In the opened dialog box, select the
    Instruction Breakpoint
    radio button and specify the breakpoint address.
  4. Choose the breakpoint type: software or hardware.
  5. Click
Now you can resume the target and see how your breakpoints work.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors.
