Select Software Packs

The Select Software Packs for Target dialog allows you to specify Software Packs for a project target.

Software Components, which are delivered with Software Packs, can be selected with the Manage Run-Time Environment dialog.

Select Software Packs

Enable Use latest version of all installed Software Packs to use the latest version of the Software Packs. Software Components are updated automatically. This default setting is useful while the project is under active development.

When project development finished, Software Components should no longer be updated automatically. Therefore, disable the option Use latest version of all installed Software Packs and specify the Software Pack versions with the settings under Selection:

  • latest: use the latest version of a Software Pack. Software Components are updated automatically whenever a newer version of a Software Pack is installed. Older versions of the same Software Pack are excluded.
  • fixed: expand to show all installed versions of the Software Pack and specify one or more versions from that list. Software Components in the project target will be used from these versions.
  • excluded: no Software Components from this Software Pack are used.

The colors indicate the usage of Software Components in the current project target:

  • Some Some Software Components from this Pack are used.
  • Some&Excluded Some Software Components from this Pack are used, but the Pack is excluded.
  • None No Software Component from this Pack is used.
  • None This Software Component is not used in the current target.

It might be required to specify the version of a Software Pack for projects that:

  • Depend on software components that are available only in specific versions of a Software Pack.
  • Depend on the behavior of a specific version of a software component.
  • Use software components that require a API which is only available in specific version of a Software Pack.

For example, some Device Family Packs provide the Software Component class Drivers. These Drivers are only compatible with the MDK-Pro Middleware Version 5.1.x and CMSIS Version 3.20.x. It is therefore required to specify these Software Packs using the Select Software Packs for Target dialog as shown below.

Select Specific Software Packs

Note

  • If multiple versions of a Software Pack are selected, then the version of an individual Software Component can be specified in the Options for Component dialog. However, instead of specifying the Software Component, you can specify the Software Pack version that contains the Software Component.
