Wow found the candy store available with newly released KDSK1.3

So following the KSDK13GSUG.pdf

I downloaded "Kinetis SDK 1.3.0 Mainline - Windows.exe" and installed it 3GB

In section 5.2.1 I follow the instructions to Install Eclipse Update for KDS300 

from directory  and though its not specified where in the instructions I found it here

C:\Freescale\KSDK_1.3.0\tools\eclipse_update

KSDK_1.3.0_Eclipse_Update.zip

On attempting install it says

Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.

  Software being installed: KSDK 1.3.0 Eclipse Update 1.0.0.b150914 (com.freescale.processorexpert.kinetis-ksdk-1.3.0.sp.feature.group 1.0.0.b150914)

  Missing requirement: KSDK 1.3.0 Eclipse Update 1.0.0.b150914 (com.freescale.processorexpert.kinetis-ksdk-1.3.0.sp.feature.group 1.0.0.b150914)

requires 'com.freescale.processorexpert.feature.core.kpsdk.feature.group [1.3.0,2.0.0)' but it could not be found

and the Update my installation to be compatible ...

 

Does anybody know if its OK to accept a partial update like this.?

Is KSDK_1.3.0_Eclipse_Update.zip  an update for the PE components inside KDS300?

 

I have only installed the standard KDS300 because of the known bugs in the update "GNU ARM J-Link Debugging"

Unable to Debug after KDS Update (Aug 3rd)

KDS3 Update still broken

 

For me the Unable to Debug after KDS Update happened at a time when I was bringing up a new board, and the  J-Link emulator locked three processor on new PCBs -possibly because of the incompatibilities described here

How to deal with MDM-AP Status System Security bit set on new MKL26Z

which makes me extremely cautious. The above problems caused me to order new prototype PCBs and move away from the J-Link debugger
