bin2hex not compatible with 64 bit windows

The bin2hex tool furnished by silabs is not compatible with windows 64.

I have pulled the source from sourceforge, compiled it under migw-w64 targeting windows 64 bit, and have attached it to this post. I have added it to the zip file that silabs distributes.   Said file is attached.

Cool.

 

I also bumped into the limitations of bin2hex recently, and I found this 

 

srec_cat, in a windows build that runs on Win64

This has a shipload of options, and can also create a ASM DB  from Bin, via -ASM switch, which I also needed.

Download https://sourceforge.net/projects/srecord/files/srecord-win32/
then run as

srec_cat BinName.bin -binary -o HexName.hex -intel
