Installing Arm® Compiler

This topic lists the system requirements for running Arm® Compiler and guides you through the installation process.

System Requirements

Arm Compiler 6 is available for the following operating systems:

  • Windows 64-bit.
  • Windows 32-bit.
  • Linux 64-bit.

For more information on system requirements see the Arm® Compiler release note.

Installing Arm® Compiler

You can install Arm Compiler as a standalone product on supported Windows and Linux platforms. If you use Arm Compiler as part of a development suite such as Arm Development Studio, Arm DS-5 Development Studio, or Arm Keil® MDK, installing the development suite also installs Arm Compiler. The following instructions are for installing Arm Compiler as a standalone product.

Prerequisites:

  1. Download Arm® Compiler 6.
  2. Obtain a license. Contact your Arm sales representative or request a license.
  3. Set the ARMLMD_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to point to your license file or license server.

    Note

    This path must not contain double quotes on Windows. A path that contains spaces still works without the quotes.

If you need to set any other environment variable, such as ARM_TOOL_VARIANT, see Toolchain environment variables for more information.
