µVISION: Wrong FLM path is shown in Options for Target

Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:

  • MDK-ARM Versions 5.XX


Flash Algorithms (FLM) are part of a DFP (Device Family Pack) and thus µVision should show the correct path of FLM in Options for Target - Utilities - Settings - Flash Download - Add, as per the selected DFP in Select Software Packs. However, µVision always shows the FLM path from the latest DFP even though the older version of DFP has been selected in Select Software Packs.

Is this a bug ?


This is not a bug.

For all device related information (device section in PDSC file), the PACK with the highest version number installed is used. In µVision, the PACK Version selection only affects the RTE components. It does not affect the device information (e.g. memory, SVD, Flash Programming Algorithm, etc.).

Therefore, to use an older device description, uninstall the recent versions of the DFPs via PackInstaller.
