Question

I have an existing C project in the Simplicity Studio IDE. How do I convert this to a C++ project?

Answer

  1. In the Simplicity IDE Project Explorer, select the project to be converted.
  2. Then click the top level menu Project menu select [Convert] > [Convert MCU Project to C or C++...].  A [Convert Silicon Labs MCU Project(s) to a C or C++] dialog box appears, and you can select the projects to be converted and if the resulting project should be C or C++:ConvertProject.PNG
  3. Then click [Finish], and the project(s) will be converted.
