Keil Microvision 5 with Compiler 5 giving license error

Hi all,

I am trying to build the DA14531 BLE SDK example from SDK6.0.16.1144. The prescribed compiler is version 5 [ARM_Compiler_5.06u7] which I have installed as per the instructions from Arm documentation. I have also activated a evaluation license key through the license manager. However when I try to build an example project it throws the following license issue

Build started: Project: ble_app_barebone
*** Using Compiler 'V5.01 [Build 94] ', folder: 'D:\Vishnu_ancit\softwares\ARM\ARM_Compiler_5\Bin'

Any help to fix this issue is deeply appreciated.



  • You mention Arm Compiler 5.06, but the build confirms Compiler V5.01.

    Also, what Evaluation license did you activate?

    How did you activate that evaluation license?

    What tools are using to build your project?

    And, confirm the exact versions in use of 

    - Keil MDK

    - Arm Compiler
