Install error SDK 2.9.1 with IDE 11.3 under windows

Hi,

I can't get the MCUXpresso IDE to import the 2.9.1 SDK. I have downloaded (and redownloaded) the latest MCUXpresso IDE v11.3.0 [Build 5222] [2021-01-11] and it installs ok.

I then downloaded the latest 2.9.1 SDK for IMX8MM from the SDK builder but dragging the archive onto the IDE or prompting the IDE to copy from a folder both fail.

I have attached images of versions and error messages.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Ed

The thing is that the SDK for the i.MX8 does not include support for the IDE, only for gcc command line tools:

So no IDE projects supported that way.

It would need this:

Actually maybe this SDK is not compatible with MCUXpresso. Which seems weird. Does anyone know what is going on? Will an integrated version become available?

Thanks ErichS, I think you need some experience with the process to notice that icon is missing. Do you know if they plan to add support?

No, I don't know that.

And it depends what you are targeting for development. Eclipse and MCUXpresso IDE is capable to do anything :-), and the SDK with the IDE supports the M7 in the i.MX RT parts out of the box. For i.MX parts with a A core and an M core it heavily depends on the combination and the needed scripting files.

I'm doing FreeRTOS on M4 in the i.MX7 (https://mcuoneclipse.com/2016/10/23/tutorial-running-freertos-on-nxp-i-mx7dual-cortex-m4f/) but for this the IDE is not really needed. I use it as well for cross development (Linux application development) on A parts: this is easily possible with the extra installation of the Cortex-A toolchain and using the standard Eclipse CDT GDB support or using a J-Link with the Eclipse CDT MCU plugins. It just requires some extra setup.
