    How to switch to the Keil Generic Toolchain ?

    jean-louis.vern

      Hi,

         

      I would like to switch to my upgraded Keil compiler, but I can't.

         

      1)  PSoC creator use the Keil 8.16a C compiler.

         

      2) I have the Keil 9.01 C compiler installed in the C:\Keil directory.

         

      3) I specify the correct location in Option->Generic Toolchain->DP8051 Keil Generic

         

      4) In the Project->Build Setting, when I change the "DP8051 8.16" to the "DP8051 Keil Generic" the "Apply" button remain shaded.

         

      Do you know what is incorrect ?

          I did not see an answer for this, so here is what I think it should be...

             

          You change the toolchain using the main toolbar, called "Build Configuration / Toolchain"  -- Do not use the menu on Build Settings. That just changes the settings for the specified toolchain; it does not select a toolchain.

             

          If you cannot see the main toolbar in PSoC Creator, right-click next to another toolbar to access the different toolbars available.

             

          Finally, under the Tools menu select Options, and point to Project Management > Generic Toolchains. This is where you tell PSoC Creator where the toolchain is.

             

          Hope this helps!
