Intro: The preparation of nRF Connect SDK Vx.x.x(NCS SDK version, ) and Nordic Example code will help you get through the program code building and trace debug in VS Code IDE or Segger Embedded Studio IDE. Here’s the brief way to recognize your nRFConnect SDK version which suits your project development.

To recognize your project is with or without Audio inquiry and download the “nRF Connect SDK(NCS)” by the following classification.
A.) Project with Non-Audio case

Option1. Go with NCS V1.9.1 (Included) and previous version.
There’re either “Open VS Code” or “Open Segger Embedded Studio” IDE options could be selected for program coding.

Option2. Go with NCS V2.0.0(included) and the later.
 There’s simply “Open VS Code” IDE that could be run for program coding.

 Please make sure the nRFConnect SDK is installed at same base directory with compiling system  (the root of Open VS Code)
(This is using D:\ncs-work base as example.)
