How to import in Atollic TrueSTUDIO for STM32 a project developed for AC6 (System WorkBench)

In this tutorial we explain what to do, for import in Atollic TrueSTUDIO for STM32 a project developed for AC6 (System WorkBench – SW4STM32)

We use an example developed using CUBE for AC6 based on NUCLEO-F030R8.
Our simply example do a flashing led present on the NUCLEO-F030R8 and the name of our project is TST1.
Our working directory is: E:\0_NUF030AC6\

We configure the STM32F030R8 by CUBE as shown below.
there is the Cube project.

We generate the project for AC6 in the working directory: TST1
and we have the files/directory shown below.

In the main.c insert after:
the two line below for flashing the LED

OK, now we want to import this project for AC6 into Atollic TrueSTUDIO for STM32.
To do this, follow the steps below.

  • First go in the TST1 directory and click by the right mouse button on the file: .project
    from the window that appear choose: Open With
    and associate the .project to: TrueSTUDIO.exe
    that, in Window 7, is in the directory:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Atollic\TrueSTUDIO for STM32 9.0.0\ide
    Look the image below.

  • Do the same for file: .cproject
  • Now double click on the .project for start Atollic TrueSTUDIO for STM32.
    From the window that appear select the working directory that in our case is: E:\0_NUF030AC6
  • A new window appear that explain us that a conversion of format is necessary, answer OK. (See below).

  • At the end of the conversion a new window appear that remember us that are necessary some manual settings, see below.

  • Now is necessary inform the compiler that we use the STM32F030R8, for do this do the steps shown below.
    Project -> Properties -> C/C++ Build -> Settings -> Target Settings -> STM32F0 -> STM32F030R8

  • Now compile the project and you must see something like below.

  • Now is necessary choose the emulator ST-LINK-v2, see the steps below.
    • Click on icon: Configure Debug
    • From the window that appear press the mouse button twice in quick succession, on the option: Embedded C/C++ Application
    • Next click on Debugger option and choose the: ST-LINK

That is all, now you are ready to compile and debug your project imported from AC6.
