By default, the ARM Compiler 5 patches, e.g., v5.01u3 installer uses "
C:\Program Files\ARM_Compiler_5" for the installation; the compiler tools executables under "
C:\Program Files\DS-5\bin" are not updated. When using the command "
armcc --vsn", the old build will still be in use rather than the newly installed build.
This is intentional. Automatically overwriting random parts of DS-5 without a wholesale DS-5 upgrade could lead to problems, so the ARM Compiler patch installer makes a parallel directory structure, e.g., "
C:\Program Files\ARM_Compiler_5", by default.
When running the ARM Compiler 5 installer, to overwrite the existing compiler build in DS-5, you need to specify the patch installation path to the DS-5 installation path, e.g., "
Note: ARM Compiler 5 can be uninstalled separately without uninstalling DS-5, by clicking the Windows button: "Start → All Programs → ARM Compiler 5 → Uninstall ARM Compiler 5".
