GENERAL: FrameworkCubeMX.gpdsc missing

Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:

  • MDK-ARM V5
  • STM32Cube 4.14.0 or earlier


I select as Device component in the Runtime Environment the STM32CubeMX graphical configuration and low level code generation tool for STM32 ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers.

An error message opens at the Output window of µVision reporting that the file FrameworkCubeMX.gpdsc is missing, as demonstrated with this screenshot:

How do I solve this error?



This issue is fixed in STM32CubeMX 4.15.0 (STM32Cube initialization code generator). In CubeMX, upgrade by going to Help => Check for Updates.

But if using 4.14 or earlier, it is required to follow these instructions:

  • Select Start STM32CubeMX

  • The STM32CubeMX STCubeGenerator pops up
  • Open Project - Settings
  • Select Code Generator - Settings to end up here:

  • see the files that will be added to your project with the code generation
  • press OK twice
  • Start the Code Generation at the Project Tab
  • After the code is generated select Open Project

  • µVision opens with the missing files included into your project now - the error message disappears.
