[MBED CLI 2] No known features for CXX compiler / device.h and cmsis.h are missing

Description of defect

While following the steps in this doc, The cmake -S . -B cmake_build -GNinja -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=<profile> showed “No known features for CXX compiler” error while mbed-tools compile -m target -t GCC_ARM worked as expected but it keeps showing device.h and cmsis.h are missing although . The previous steps in the doc had no issues.


>cmake -S . -B cmake_build -GNinja -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debug

The build directory has changed. Use the appropriate directory inside cmake_build with the -B option.

For the device.h issue, you seem to be using a custom target. Make sure you add your target’s directories to CMake.

Update: I completely forgot that I had the same device.h issue with my custom STM32 target :smile:. I mentioned the issue in https://github.com/ARMmbed/mbed-tools/pull/160 but didn’t get an answer. So the question is: Has anybody managed to use a custom target with CLI 2?

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

I found that device.h and cmsis.h are added for some targets folder (.i.e mbed-os\targets\TARGET_TOSHIBA\TARGET_TMPM4G9\device). In my case (ambiq targets). they are in (targets\TARGET_Ambiq_Micro\TARGET_Apollo3\device) . I raised an issue for that.
