In the example mentioned above the directories shown below are present.
For each EVAL or START board there are several examples for GPIO, USART, USB, etc.
All ready to be opened with KEIL and also with IAR.
Unfortunately the examples are ready to use for older versions of the mentioned IDEs (KEIL and IAR).
To use these examples with KEIL follow the explanations below.
Suppose that you want to use the GD32407V_START board for test the LED mounted on it.
Go in the directory:
and rename the file:
Now open your KEIL, please remember to open it in administration mode, and select PROJECT -> OPEN PROJECT

For debug press the relative icon and run the program, see below.
You must see the LED that flashing.
To summarize, you can run any example you find in the various directories simply by renaming the file:

That’s it, good work with your new GD32.
