Binary file does not include checksum
Technical Note 62859

This tech note discusses issues that can occur when combing binary output format with checksum calculation.
Both the option "Output Converter > Output > Generate additional output > Output format: binary" is set; and options for checksum are selected. Still the checksum is not included in the generated binary file.
The binary file is generated before the checksum is calculated by the ielftool.exe.
See Technical Note 52619 (Solution 2 and 3) about using a .bat file invoked from the post-build command line. (The solution is to let the post-build command line invoke a .bat file that first calculates the checksum and then generates additional output, such as a binary file.)
