No BitIO in Processor Expert for FRDM platforms

First of all, I am a hardware guy and am still getting up to speed in the world of Eclipse IDE. I have experience, but with products from 5+ years back. I have watched several Youtube tutorials, following them step by step. And, I have confirmed my steps below on two separate computer systems.

 

I have done a clean install of KDS 3.0.0 and KSDK 1.2.0. Here are my steps in KDS:

1) Start KDS and select workspace.

2) File | New  | Kinetis Project | Next

3) Type Project name. Use default location.

4) Under Devices: Boards>Kinetis>FRDM-K64F | Next

     (I have also tried with other FRDM boards)

5) Kinetis SDK = KDSK1.2.0; Absolute path = C:\Freescale\KSDK_1.2.0 (where I installed it); Processor Expert = Use current perspective; Project Mode = Standalone | Next

6) GNU C Compiler | Finish

 

The project is created with initial source and the following components:

     clockMan1:fsl_clock_manager

     pin_init:PinSettings

     intMan1:fsl_interrupt_manager

 

I select the "Components Library" tab. In the "Alphabetical" tab, the drop-downs are set to "All repositories" and "Applicable to project".

The Components listed in the table for selection are:

     BasicProperties

     ExternalFile

     FreeMaster

     fsl_adc16

     fsl_adc16_hal

     fsl_clock_manager

     fsl_cmp

     ...

     Init_ADC

     Init_AIPS0

     ...

     OS_Task

     PinSettings

     StringList

     TwoKeys

 

In order to see "BitIO", "PWM", "Serial_LDD", and other components, I must change the "Applicable to project" drop-down to "All". However, when I do so, and select one of the components and use "Component Inspector", I receive the error "The component is not supported for the selected processor" next to the "Component name". The processor shown in the Components list is "Cpu:MK64FN1M0VLL12".

 

I have tried numerous combinations of FRDM platforms with identical results. I have selected a processor, but then all reference to the FRDM target platform I/O assignments is lost.

 

I'm sure I am missing something fundamental. Help! and Thanks!
