X-NUCLEO-IHM03A1 Arduino compatibility?

Hello,
I'm trying to use an Arduino UNO R3 to control the IHM03A1 stepper driver.  I found an Arduino library for the IHM01A1, which looks to me like an older version of the stepper driver.  I installed the library and uploaded an example sketch, which should move the motor about using various commands.  However, when I power up the board, I get a green power LED, and a red and an amber LED lighting up, and the step LEDs are very dimly lit up. There is no motor movement.  I'm wondering whether anyone can help.  It says it's compatible with STM32 Nucleo boards, and compatible with Arduino UNO R3 connector, but none of the official software seems to be for the Arduino... I'm coming to the conclusion ST doesn't want Arduino users to be able to use the ST library for this device, and want us to buy a Nucleo board instead?  I hope there is a way to use the Nucleo library on a proper Arduino.   

Thanks,

James
