µVISION: Save, Compile, Flash, and Debug

Information in this article applies to

  • µVISION 4 and 5


Is there an all in one shortcut in Keil, like "save, build, flash, and debug"?


Yes. You can check a few options to chain these together:

For saving files: go to Edit -> Configuration, and check "Save Files before entering Debug" (and optionally, check "Save Project before entering Debug" to save .uvprojx file).

For Flashing: go to Project -> Options for Target -> Utilities Tab and check "Update Target before Debugging"

Now you will save and flash when clicking Debug.

To Save, Build, Flash, and Debug when clicking the build button, go to Project -> Options for Target -> User Tab and check "Start Debugging".
