Installing Arm® Compiler

You can install Arm Compiler as a standalone product on supported Windows and Linux platforms. If you use Arm Compiler as part of a development suite such as Arm Development Studio, Arm DS-5 Development Studio, or Arm Keil® MDK, installing the development suite also installs Arm Compiler. The following instructions are for installing Arm Compiler as a standalone product.

Prerequisites:

  1. Download Arm® Compiler 6.
  2. Obtain a license. Contact your Arm sales representative or request a license.

Installing a standalone Arm® Compiler on Windows platforms

To install Arm Compiler as a standalone product on Windows, you need the setup.exe installer on your machine. This is in the Arm® Compiler 6 download:

  1. On 64-bit platforms, run win-x86_64\setup.exe. On 32-bit platforms, run win-x86_32\setup.exe.
  2. Follow the on-screen installation instructions.
  3. Some license types require you to complete further configuration steps. To check if your license requires further configuration, and to learn how to configure that license, see Arm® Compiler Licensing Configuration.

If you have an older version of Arm Compiler 6 and you want to upgrade, Arm recommends that you uninstall the older version of Arm Compiler 6 before installing the new version of Arm Compiler 6.

To install Arm Compiler as a standalone product on Linux platforms, you need the install_x86_64.sh installer on your machine. This is in the Arm® Compiler 6 download:
