Automatic installation using the IAR Plugin Manager (recommended)
- Download and install
Eclipse. The plugins are compatible with Eclipse 4.2 (Juno) and onwards.
- Start Eclipse and choose 'Help > Install new software'.
Install the IAR Plugin Manager by copying and pasting the following
URL in the "Work with" text field:
Finish the installation, and restart when needed.
- Start the IAR Plugin Manager from Help → IAR Embedded
Workbench plugin manager:
- The dialog will display a list of Embedded Workbench targets
for which Eclipse support is available on the left pane, and a
list of matching installations for the currently selected target in
the right pane.
Select your target in the left pane, then select your IAR
Embedded Workbench installation in the right pane. This will
ensure that the Eclipse plugin you install is compatible with the IAR
Embedded Workbench version you are using.
If your Embedded Workbench installation
is not shown in the right pane, it can still be added manually
by clicking the Add IAR Embedded Workbench installation...
button and selecting the corresponding installation folder.
When you are finished, click Install.
- The plugin manager will now install your plugin. This may take
a while, so be patient. When installation has finished, you will
need to restart Eclipse.
Manual installation using the "Install New Software..." dialog
The plugins can also be installed directly using the Install New
Software... dialog, without using the plugin manager. To do this,
you need to first lookup the update site to use
which is compatible with your version of IAR Embedded Workbench
When you have the correct update site, proceed with the normal
Eclipse plugin installation procedure. Please refer to Eclipse
documentation for additional information.
