Hi. I have purchased a FRDM-KL03Z development board and wish to learn how to build and debug the Hello World example application using the ARM GCC toolchain. I have accessed a set of software installation instructions for this by clicking on the "Use ARM GCC" button at

My operating system is Windows 7 (32-bit)


I've downloaded and installed the following programs:

  • Kinetis SDK 1.3.0 Mainline - Windows.exe [Source:1]
  • gcc-arm-none-eabi-8-2019-q3-update-win32-sha2.exe [2]
  • mingw-get-setup.exe [3] (Selected "mingw32-base" and "msys-base" for installation. Appended C:\MinGW\bin to Path)
  • cmake-3.15.2-win32-x86.msi [4]


I added new system variable using Windows 7 Control Panel
   Variable name: ARMGCC_DIR
   Variable value: C:\Program Files\GNU Tools ARM Embedded\8 2019-q3-update


I then rebooted and tried to run the following from the Windows command line


I received a number of errors and the build failed. I have attached the system output as a text file.

Please can someone assist?
