Jump to: navigation, search

SEGGER Embedded Studio V4.18 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.

Solutions:

  • Try using Embedded Studio V4.20 or newer as the license conditions have been changed. Generally we recommend to always use the newest Embedded Studio version.
  • If you require to use V4.18 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 be able to install the Nordic license Embedded Studio V4.20 or newer must be used. After the license is installed it will also work for V4.18.
      • Keep in mind that the Nordic license will only be valid for Nordic Embedded Studio projects. On other projects you will still get the error message. For more information see here.
