How do I upgrade to a later version of RVDS?

Applies to: RealView Development Suite (RVDS), Tool Licensing (License Management)


If you are trying to obtain the latest release of RVDS (currently RVDS 4.1 Professional), or another ARM development tool, you can obtain it from the following page of the ARM website: (login/registration required)

Note that no license is provided with this download.  Alternatively, you can obtain a 30-day evaluation license for RVDS 4.1 from the following location of our website: (login/registration required)

In order to obtain your full tools license you will need to contact your ARM tools supplier directly. ARM technical support cannot provide you with a new license for RVDS.

When you contact your supplier, please provide them with the serial number of your existing copy of RVDS. They will need that information to determine your eligibility for upgrade or update pricing.  Please see the FAQ: How do I find my ARM serial number? if you are unsure where to look for your license file.

You can find a list of local ARM offices here:

If you purchased your tools from one of our distributors, please see our ARM partners page for contact information:

Please also be aware that upgrades and updates do not count as additional seats of RVDS. For more information, please see the FAQ: Do upgrade/update seats replace existing seats?
