Once you have the WICED Smart IDE installed you can import other WICED Smart SDK .7z releases easily without reinstalling the IDE, or even changing the workspace. This method comes in handy when you have several releases you want to test and compare. You may keep several projects(SDKs) open in one workspace, but for simplicity we will start with closing the existing project.

 

 

<Importing a New WICED Smart SDK>

 

1. Right-click on your current project name in the IDE and select "Close Project". This will not modify or delete your files in anyway. It will, however, close the files you had open in the IDE, and you can choose to either save any changes that had been made. (This step is optional, you may have several projects open at once)

2. Extract the new WICED Smart SDK .7z file to your chosen destination.


3. Click on the arrow next to the leftmost folder icon and select "Makefile Project with Existing Code"

4. Click on "Browse" and navigate to and then select the WICED SDK folder you created. The "Project Name" will be automatically filled in from the name in the "Existing Code Location" you choose. You may modify the name for clarity.

5. The new SDK will now be showing in the leftmost "Project Explorer" view.

<Making New Targets>


Initially the new project directory will not show up in the right-most "Make Target" view. You will need to set up the directory first and then you will be able to add on new targets more easily.


1. In the leftmost tab of "Project Explorer", right-click on the new project you just imported. Select "Make Targets" and "Create".

2. Type in "clean" as the target name and press OK. (Any name will do but you will probably need a target "clean" anyway)

3. In this step you will have to close the IDE window and then restart it. When it reopens, you will see that the directory for targets will has been created.

4. From now on you can right-click on the project name in the "Make Target" tab or just click on the target+ icon.
