No compatible probes available.

Hello NXP,


I downloaded the new MCUXpresso IDE_11.2.1_4149. I can build a project but when I click on 'Debug', I get an error message – “No compatible probes available. They may be disabled, disconnected, not powered, already in use or not compatible with this target”. The board is powered up and I am using Ubuntu V16+. Please advise.

Hi @running_gao ,

do you have a probe/board connected? Using the correct USB port (some boards only do have a debug probe on some USB ports).

You should see the debug probe in your device list too.


I hope this helps,
