Electronics - IAR Systems - Installing IAR Embedded Workbench and activate a license

If you already had some difficulties to install the IAR Embedded Workbench, let me explain how to get a time limited or a code size limited license.

This tutorial will help you to remove this kind of error when trying build a project without a license:

Fatal Error[LMS001]: No license found. Use the IAR License Manager to resolve the problem.[LicenseCheck:2.13.8.154, RMS:3.4.2.0085, Feature:ARM.EW.COMPILER, Version:1.00]

Not so hard, but setting up IDEs is sometimes not so easy.

Downloading the IDE

For a time limited or a code size limited license you have to download the same software.

Let's go on the IAR Systems official website: http://www.iar.com/
For a direct link: http://www.iar.com/en/Service-Center/Downloads/

Select the processor or core you wish to work with and a new window appears.
Just download the software.

Installing the IDE

Launch the binary, something like EWARM-CD-6503 and install it on your computer.

Managing the license

We have now to open the License Manager.

For that, open the IDE and > Help > License Manager...

A new window appears and click License > Get Evaluation License.

The License Wizard pop up asking you for register.
Click the Register button.

Your browser opens and you have to fill the form to have a license number in order to activate the IAR Embedded Workbench.

An email is sent to you.
Click on the validation link, on your email, and new page appears with your license number.

Enter it and click Next on the License Wizard.

Click Next again to activate the license.
Click Done.

If you had already installed it

It's possible that one day, you open your IDE and a new error appears:

Fatal Error[LMS001]: Failed to obtain feature: "ARM.EW.COMPILER_KS" version: "1.00". 
No license is available for this feature. Status code 0x12. [LicenseCheck:2.12.3.454, RMS:8.5.0.0021, Feature:ARM.EW.COMPILER,  
Version:1.00] 
Error while running C/C++ Compiler 
myfile.c  

Linking

The reason is because you have to ask another key.
Yes I know it's weird since a permanent key is already activated.

Anyway, redo the process to ask a key as if it was your first time.

Conclusion

Try to rebuild your project.
Well done, you've made it.
You can now use your EWARM like a charm. laugh

Hello Ahmad,

Did you try to close and reopen your EWARM IDE?
This is maybe trivial but it may work. smiley

I tried the new license manager. At least for Windows XP on a VirtualBox VM there seem to be compatibility issues. Got the error following code:

ERROR [7625]: Error[18]: No license code is available for feature UNKNOWN on host no-net.
ERROR [7625]: Description: Failed to obtain feature: "ARM.EW.COMPILER_KS" version: "1.07".
ERROR [7625]: No license is available for this feature. Status code 0x12. [LicenseCheck:2.14.2.842, RMS:8.5.2.0015, Feature:ARM.EW.COMPILER, Version:1.07]

Getting back to the old license manager + license helped in my case. Don't know whether the VM or the OS is the actual problem though.

Hey guys
I've contacted the support team and they helped me solve the problem.
The problem is that "the locking criteria for this Kickstart license is System UUID, It could be that your PC does not have a System UUID".
So they "changed the locking criteria for you remotely to Hard disk ID instead".
And it worked.
So just contact the support team here:
