download http://www.mingw.org/wiki/msys and add to path (should do it by itself)
download https://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded to somewhere, for me it was D:/gnu/5.2 2015q4
update Makefile.windows found in nRF52_SDK_INSTALL\components\toolchain\gcc
You should be ready to go! Let’s try it now
Locate the blinky example, and find the folder that holds the makefile, for me this is D:\nordicsemi\nRF52_SDK_0.9.2_dbc28c9\examples\peripheral\blinky\pca10036\blank\armgcc.
From here, execute make nrf52832_xxaa.
The next steps are as follows:
Open nRFgo Studio
Click Segger XXXXX entry in the Device Manager
Make sure Program Application is chosen in the tabs to the right in the program
Browse to find the newly created .hex file
Click ‘program’ and stand by to watch the board come to life!
I always spend way too much time setting up this, so this is a reference to myself.
Feel free to use it for your own benefit.
