Why can't I import a .mex file into the MCUXPresso IDE?

I recently configured a project using a MKE18F512VLL16 processor using the most recent version of the standalone MCUXpresso Config Tool (on Mac OS/X if it matters).


I then decided to use the MCUXpresso IDE, which I downloaded and installed. I then generated an SDK for this processor and dropped it onto the "Installed SDKs" view to install it.


After creating a new project in the IDE for the processor I'd selected, I tried to import the .mex file that I'd previously created.


Unfortunately, this failed with a message "Unsupported target project. Target processor is not supported in current version of the Config Tools.".


This is clearly incorrect, as the file was created by a current version of the Config Tools.


What can I do to fix this?


Both the MCUXpresso IDE and the Config Tools package were downloaded within the last week from NXP's web site.
