µVISION: Dynamic Syntax Checker: Error in Include Chain, cmsis_armcc.h

Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:

  • MDK-ARM 5.14
  • MDK-ARM 5.16
  • MDK-ARM 5.16a


On the line of an include statement for a system header file, the Dynamic Syntax Checker has marked a red X. If I hover over the X, it says: "error in include chain (cmsis_armcc.h): expected identifier or '('". Fortunately, when I build, the project compiles without error.


This was a false positive reported by the Dynamic Syntax Checker. It is safe to ignore. The first KB article listed below describes a workaround, to remove the warning.
