I inherited a project which uses a quite old version of the GCC toolchain when opening the project I receive the error:

Unable to find the tool chain with name: "ARM CM3-GCC 4.2.1". Select a different tool chain for your workspace.

How do I change the toolchain version of the project? I tried finding this version on the ARM developer project. The oldest version that I could find is 4.6 2012q4. Can someone point me to where to change the project settings or provide a link to the old version of the toolchain?

Hi @coffeefueled ,

If you have a generic ARM GCC toolchain installed on your computer, you can point to the location of the toolchain’s binaries in Tools > Options > Project Management > Generic Toolchains and then build your project.

However, if you do not have (or if you do not want to use) a generic ARM GCC toolchain, then you can use the ARM GCC toolchain that is available as a part of the PSoC Creator installation. To select this default toolchain provided with PSoC Creator, do the following:

In your PSoC Creator project screen, click on Project > Build Settings. In the Build Settings window, change the Toolchain option to for example ARM GCC 4.4.1 then click on Apply and then OK. Now, you should be able to build the project successfully.

Please also refer to KBA if you are using PSoC 5LP.

Warm Regards,
Gautami J

In my project screen I only see the "ARM GCC Generic" and "ARM MDK Generic". How can I add the default toolchain provided by PSoc Creator to my installation?
