No ARM dev tools on ARM hosts!

I ran into a delightful irony trying to help a student get set up for the embedded systems lab I’m running this semester: Neither Keil MDK ARM (a first-class ARM development environment) nor the Stellaris ICDI Drivers (TI’s programming/debug interface for their smaller ARM processors) will run on Windows 10 ARM.
I think this is also the first time I’ve seen a Windows 10 ARM device in the wild.

(For those who know ARM stuff, yes, Keil is kind of crusty, but we like the textbook we’ve been using, it uses Keil style directives and TI details, so switching to CCS with TI parts or a different ARM family would require major retooling.)
