I have installed WinAVR on my PC.Now I download WinARM and try to use it
to establish a ARM project. When click "Make all" in "tools" menu, it
return the
following:

process_begin: CreateProcess((null), arm-elf-gcc --version, ...) failed.
make (e=2): 系统找不到指定的文件。


I wonder how WinARM can exist with WinAVR in the same PC. ?

Also I would like to ask this question:

What's the benefit of WinARM according to ADS?

free? only charge free? or other benefit more?

Regards!

Please read the readme-file (readme.htm) that comes with WinARM. It seem
that you did not add the path C:\WinARM\bin to the system search path
(PATH environment variable).

This is also mentioned in the readme-file, so please read it. If you
have WinAVR installed you do not have to add C:\WinARM\utils\bin to the
system search path since WinAVR already includes the needed utilities
(i.e. make.exe) in it's C:\WinAVR\utils\bin directory.

Yes.

Yes, free of charge. What is ment with "only". What do you expect?

> or other benefit more?

A very general question. I do not know the ADS, so I can not provide a
comparision.

One benefit for example is that the handling of the tools in WinARM is
very similar to what you already know from WinAVR. Both collection are
based on the GNU-toolchain. WinARM includes a precompiled
GNU-cross-Toolchain for the arm-elf target and WinAVR the GNU-Toolchain
for avr.

Martin Thomas,Thanks much for your reply.
You've done a great work.As an engineerer I'm so much appreciated for
you!

I think I would enjoy WINARM  soon as I'm enjoying WinAVR now.

Best Regards!
