ARMCC: EVAL VERSION "NEEDS TO CLOSE"


Information in this article applies to:

  • MDK-ARM V3.05 and Earlier

SYMPTOM

The evaluation version of the MDK-ARM tools displays the following message when starting µVision, or compiling a program module:

The ARM (t)c/c++ Compiler has encountered a problem
and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.

This did not happen prior to July 2007.

CAUSE

V3.05 and earlier versions of the MDK-ARM evaluation tools perform a date calculation which fails starting in July 2007. It is this failure that causes the above error message to display.

RESOLUTION

Download and install the latest version (V3.11) of the MDK-ARM Evaluation kit to correct this.

STATUS
