Mbed CLI can't find executable for gcc_arm.

Hi, I have a problem compiling in mbed CLI. That's what i do: I first use mbed new. command inside my directory Next: mbed detect Next: mbed target NUCLEO_F446RE Next: mbed toolchain GCC_ARM Next: (To be sure but I've done it previously) mbed config -G GCC_ARM_PATH "C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU Tools ARM Embedded\6 2017-q2-update\arm-none-eabi" Next: mbed compile And I get this error:

make.py: error: Could not find executable for GCC_ARM. Currently set search path: C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU Tools ARM Embedded\6 2017-q2-update\arm-none-eabi [mbed] ERROR: "C:\Python27\python.exe" returned error. Code: 2 Path: "C:\Users\klachowicz\everyrobot_mbed-master" Command: "C:\Python27\python.exe -u C:\Users\klachowicz\everyrobot_mbed-master\mbed-os\tools\make.py -t GCC_ARM -m NUCLEO_F446RE source . build .\BUILD\NUCLEO_F446RE\GCC_ARM" Tip: You could retry the last command with "-v" flag for verbose output -

So I changed up the path many different times and when I almost gave up and gave the same path I did in the begining it worked. Why did it happen and why it keeps happening?

Hi Kamil,

If you installed arm gnu tools by default path, then you should configure GCC_ARM_PATH as below


mbed config -G GCC_ARM_PATH "C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU Tools ARM Embedded\6 2017-q2-update\bin"

Those executable binaries are in this folder.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
