I use µVision 5. Installed at C:\Keil_v5
I have installed eclipse, JRE, MDK-ARM Version 5.11a and setup the
But on eclipse the µVision icon is grayed out, but the
µVision menu is visible.
What should I do?
I tried to install the plug-in from C:\Keil\Eclipse (this is where
I have my µVision4 installation). And now the µVision
icon is OK.
Is it that this plug-in only works with µVision4?
Note: The plug-in from C:\Keil_v5\Eclipse does not work even if I

Run-time Environment. This
is not yet covered by the Eclipse plugin we provided for MDK4. Maybe
a new plugin will be
available in the near future since our development team is currently
working on it. But I
cannot provide any schedule for this.
