SWPACK: missing example projects
Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:
With my installation of MDK-ARM V5 I like to open an example project for demonstration, but I can't find any such projects.
Where can I find an example project for my selected device?
With MDK-ARM V5 for many devices examples projects are offered at the Examples-tab of the Pack Installer.
The access requires the installation of the corresponding Software Pack for your device. To do so select the device listed at the Devices-tab on the left site of the Pack Installer and next select the corresponding Device Family Pack at the Packs - Device Specific tab on the right site. Then just click Install.
After completing the installation open the Examples-tab to finally Copy a matching project out of the list of examples appearing. The below screenshot demonstrates a typical list of example projects listed for the LPC1700 Series of NXP:
If that list is empty, with MDK-ARM V5 there currently is no example project prepared for your device.
In this case we recommend installing the MDK Version 5 - Legacy Support. Depending on the CPU of your device, install either the Legacy Support for Cortex-M devices, or for a ARM7, ARM9 & Cortex-R device.
With the installation of the Legacy Support former example projects with MDK-ARM V4 versions are copied to the folders C:\Keil\ARM\Boards and C:\Keil\ARM\Examples. Probably one of these example projects is matching your requirements. If there still is no matching project existing, at the moment we do not offer any such project.
