SEGGER Embedded Studio V4.52c and older had a different license condition than newer Embedded Studio versions. So if you do not have a valid Embedded Studio license you might get the error message:

Error Reported: The evaluation period for this release has now expired.

or

Unrecoverable failure: The evaluation period for this release has now expired.

Solution:

  • If you require to use V4.52c or older a valid Embedded Studio license is required. Available license types are explained here.
    • If you are looking to work with a Nordic Semiconductor target you can also get a free license here.
  • To install the license, use the newest Embedded Studio version.
  • Install the license with the new version.
  • After successful installation open the old version again. The evaluation period error should no longer appear.
