Project conversion with a GUI

  1. In VS Code, go to File - Open Folder and select the folder containing the uvprojx file (here Blinky.uvprojx).

  2. Once the folder is open in VS Code, a pop up appears in the bottom left corner asking if the uvprojx file should be converted:

  3. Click the Convert button.

  4. The following files (and more) are generated:

    • Blinky.csolution.yaml
    • Blinky.cproject.yaml
    • vcpkg-configuration.json
  5. The vcpkg configuration file is automatically activated. You notice an active configuration in the Status Bar at the bottom:

  6. Click on the CMSIS icon in the Activity Bar. The Primary Side Bar changes and shows the CONTEXT, SOLUTION, and ACTIONS for the project.

  7. In the ACTIONS section, click on Build:

  8. The cbuild task starts. A successful project build will end with:

            Program size: Code=... RO-data=... RW-data=... ZI-data=...
    info cbuild: build finished successfully!
