Failed to initialize the Debug Server
So I'm having a bit of trouble using CCSv4 (specifically 4.0.2.01003) to debug code for my eZ430-RF2500. The project builds fine, but when I try to debug I get the following error:
Exception occurred during launch
Reason: Failed to initialize the Debug Server.
Reason: Unable to load C:\\Program Files (x86)\Texas Instruments\ccsv4\DebugServer\drivers\msp430_emu.dvr
I've checked that path, and the driver is there, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Help?
That is a really old version of CCS, and there have been many bug fixes and improvements since then. Could you give CCSv5 a try? You can download the latest version 5.1.1 from here and install it. It is also recommended to install outside of c:\Program Files (x86) if using Windows 7: http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/FAQ_-_CCSv5#Q:_Is_Windows_7_supported.3F
Please give this a try and let us know if you still have problems.
