Introduction

We have discovered that Windows 10 version 1803 and USB dongle licenses need a workaround.

Discussion

The message from IAR Embedded Workbench can look like this:

Failed to obtain feature 'ARM.EW.DEBUGGER'

The workaround is to configure Windows 8 compatibility mode.

  1. Right-click the IAR Embedded Workbench icon on the Windows start menu
  2. Select Properties
  3. Open the Compatibility page
  4. Choose Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows 8
  5. Click OK

Eclipse:

Do the same kind of actions on the eclipse.exe icon.

 

Conclusion

For the time being, use the workaround. This issue has been acknowledged by our License Management Partner and will be fixed in future releases.
