Register a compiler toolchain
You can use a different compiler toolchain other than the one installed with Arm® Development Studio.
If you want to build projects using a toolchain that is not installed with Arm Development Studio, you must first register the toolchain you want to use. You can register toolchains:
- Using the Preferences dialog in Arm Development Studio.
- Using the add_toolchain utility from the Arm Development Studio Command Prompt.
You might want to register a compiler toolchain if:
- You upgrade your version of Arm Development Studio but you want to use an earlier version of the toolchain that was previously installed.
- You install a newer version or older version of the toolchain without re-installing Arm Development Studio.
When you register a toolchain, the toolchain is available for new and existing projects in Arm Development Studio.
You can only register Arm or GCC toolchains.
