Last month,I installed the FreeMASTER ,and it could connect my board FRDMKE15Z. Yesterday I upgraded the newer version, but it could't connect the board.thus,I delected all the floders about FreeMASTER3.0 to uninstall it.after that,I try many times to re-install ,but every time it shows "one or more newer versions of the product are already installed.An upgrade is not applicable."what should i do ?
I'm looking forward for your reply.
Solved! Go to Solution.
in my case the FreeMASTER can run with no issue. Please check following steps:
Dear Yonghui Wang,
so the installation issue is now resolved. How about the communication with the FRDM-KE15z board? Is it working now?
You wrote above that you use the USB to connect FreeMASTER but I need more information. There are two modes in which you can use the physical USB connection with KE15:
Which one do you use and what error do you get? Can you send any screenshot showing the error?
Before the newer FreeMASTER to connect the board, I meet the other problem that the demo project "frdme15z_touch_sensing" and "frdm15z_frmstr_example_usart" can't be build successfully,it has three errors.But the other project can be builded ande debugged successfully,such as "frdmke15z_tsi_v5_selfmode".It seems that if the project about FreeMASTER can't be build.
The console shows:

I cannot simulate your issue. I download SDK 2.8.0 pack with Touch middleware, imported both projects: frdme15z_touch_sensing" and "frdm15z_frmstr_example_usart" and successfully build both examples without any errors. The file freemaster_ures.c was added in both examples after import to MCUX IDE. I would try to create new workspace and import the project you want to use again.
I tried to create new workspace in new path and import the project ,it also had the error.besides,I installed the SDK 2.7.0,it also has the problem.
Firstly I tried to import your SDK 2.8.0 pack into old MCUX IDE 11.0.1_2563 this should not be working and really is not working because old MCUX IDE does not support the new SDK pack 2.8.0 this is expected behavior.
Secondly I tried to import both projects: touch_sensing" and "frmstr_example_uart" from your SDK package into new MCUX IDE 11.2.0_4120, the import and build passed without any error. I checked that FreeMASTER sources are located in your pack you shared in the Wed_Jul_22_12_25_23_2020-windows-mcuxpresso-FRDM-KE15Z.zip\middleware\freemaster\src\ path - this is correct. But you wrote in previous message that you do not see these files in SDK package, how it is possible ?
Did you share mi the same SDK pack you are using ?
If there are not FreeMASTER sources in the SDK pack the sources will not be in the project causing the build issue.
To the version 11.0.1_2563, I used the SDK 2.7.0,and to the version 11.2.0_4120，I used the SDK 2.8.0. I just checked the SDK zip, found the file freemaster_ures.c,but the unzip folder has not the file ,so amazing.I copy the file into the the unzip folder,now it can build successfully.
After that,I downloaded the program,and disconnected the MCUX IDE11.2.0_4120. But FreeMASTER also can't connect the board,the following picture shows the error (the FreeMASTER project "NXPTouchkez15.pmpx" imported from SDK_2.8.0_FRDM-KE15Z\middleware\touch\freemaster)
in my case the FreeMASTER can run with no issue. Please check following steps:
I'm sorry I don't know the Touch solution for KE15, but from the error it seems that the file freemaster_ures.c is not added to project. Do you have the file in the Touch demo installation? If yes, please add it to project. If not, let me know.
I have been built successfully.I downloaded the program,and disconnected the MCUX IDE. But FreeMASTER also can't connect the board,the following picture shows the error (the FreeMASTER project "NXPTouchkez15.pmpx" imported from SDK_2.8.0_FRDM-KE15Z\middleware\touch\freemaster).
As you said , the project don't have the file freemaster_ures.c .But I can't find the file in the SDK_2.8.0_FRDM-KE15Z\middleware\freemaster\src,and I didn't find the file on my PC.
Regarding the installation issue - it is possible that there are some remaining resources not cleared after the uninstall process.
To confirm this you'll need to check the following file .com.zerog.registry.xml (it should be stored in C:\Program Files (x86)\Zero G Registry). This file contains a xml formated list of products installed using the same packager as FreeMASTER installer. In case it contains only FreeMASTER <product> - just delete the file. Otherwise remove this entry from the <products> list (in this case make a backup copy of the file just in case). After this try launching FreeMASTER installer.
Hope this helps,
I don't think that your connection issue with KE15Z was caused by updating to the latest FreeMASTER 3.0. The latest version (3.0.3) is almost the same as the earlier 3.0.x versions, at least in terms of physical communication.
If possible, please install (repair) the latest 3.0.3 and try again. I will assist you to get the communication working. And if we have really broken something in the communication, it will at least help us to find the issue and fix it.
So, if you'd try the 3.0.3, what communication error do you get? What communication type do you use (Serial, JTAG, ..) And can you share your project?
You can reach out to me directly in case you do not want to share the project here in public.
Thank you for your reply on the NXP community about my question "how to re-install FreeMASTER".
I installed the newest version 220.127.116.11,it also showed "one or more newer versions of the product are already installed.An upgrade is not applicable."Beside, I tried to uninstall MCUXpresso and delete all folder about NXP ,after that I try again install the newest version 18.104.22.168,the question still exist.
The project what i used is frdmke15z_tsi_v5_selfmodd which imported from SDK example(SDK_2.x_FRDM-KE15z 2.8.0).And I used the USB to connect the Board,now Ican Debug it.
Does it will cause the problem by deleting the folder about FreeMASTER instead of using the normal way to uninstall it ?or beause of the Software Activation Code?
