I created/imported a project in Studio, but saw that the project did not have any toolchain associated with it. [(No toolchain) - None Toolchain Configuration] was what I saw next to the project. Why is this happening and how can I fix this?
Why is this happening:
The problem occurred because Simplicity Studio was unable to detect the toolchain correctly. Typically this is because the IAR executables exited with a failure exit code. Although, users would have set the path to an IAR installation, Studio was unable to validate the toolchain there. If Studio can't validate it, then the toolchain will be removed and any subsequent projects would use some other toolchain (normally None).
How to fix this issue:
One of the primary fixes would be to try to manually add the toolchain to the project. This can be done by following these steps:
Right click on the project without the toolchain.
Go to Build Configurations >> Manage
Click on Add
If you can find the IAR toolchain, select it and add it
Step 4: I cannot find the IAR toolchain. Although I am sure IAR toolchain is at the specified location, Simplicity Studio cannot find it there.
