µVISION: Using different versions of the ARM Compiler
Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:
How can I switch between different versions/builds of the Arm Compiler within µVision IDE?
In some situations it might be desirable to use a different version/build/updates of the Arm Compiler than the one shipped with MDK. For example, a new patch for the Arm Compiler might include some improvements and fixes. Also, it might be desirable to compare the code generation from the Arm Compiler shipped with one version of MDK with another version.
Note: the Keil license on the PC has to support the selected version of the Arm compiler. There could be compiler or linker errors if:
For MDK versions 5.11a and older
Rather than switch compilers, there is method for having multiple versions of the Keil IDE on the same machine. See µVision: Using Two Different Versions Of a Tool Chain.
