Unfortunately errors are displayed:
The Project references devices, files or libraries that are not
Download and Install: Third Party Device Support...
Error: Device not found...
at error windows like these:
µVision can't locate the configured device in the Device Database, because a user-specific Device Database is used. We i.e. are aware of such a situation when selecting STM32Cube firmware examples for the STM32L0 series.
Install the corresponding Legacy Pack into your Keil installation folder.
If this user specific Device Database is not installed permanently such error messages may still pop up!
In this case either just ignore the error and continue to build your project as usual
or select Project - Manage - Migrate to Version 5 Format.
