I have CCS 5.2 installed on Win 7/64, it works fine with my OMAP-L138 Dev Kit. But when I try to build a project for my MSP430 as soon I select MSP430 I get a message indicating there is no build tools installed for this device family. I look into the settings for build preferences and point to the folder where MSP430 compiler is installed manually, but the system can not find the tools. However if I search the folder in the CCS installation directory with windows explorer there are files there under MSP430 Compiler.
Can you guys give me an orientation how to solve this issue?
have you tried adding the compiler under Window->Preferences->Code Composer Studio->Build->Code Generation tools ... you can try manually pointing CCS to the directory with the compiler. Give that a try and keep us informed. Also you can rerun the installer to the same directory to add msp430 support.
Please let us know how it goes.
Thank youo for your idea. I have done that, I even reinstall whole CCS cleaning the registry after removing the tool then reinstall fresh, still same issue. Any other ideas?? sugestions??
did you install and run CCS with full admin/user access privileges? What license type did you select when setting up CCS? Have you seen whether you can get the msp tools via Help->Check for Updates?
If not let me know perhaps one thing to try is my sending you a version of the compiler offline.
I have the exact same problem. I used to have a working version of CCS but then it randomly stopped working and all the following reinstalls have had this problem. Ive tried all the things suggested here.Another thing I have tried is installing all msp430 related software through Help->Install New Software
Any help fixing this would be greatly appreciated.
Yes I did disable User Account Control (UAC) at the fresh reinstall, same thing. I recently purchased the Node Locked version of CCS. I am able to see the compiler version 4 listed in the sub-directories, but it is Eclipse that cannot find them.
I have the files for the MSP 430 experimenter board, (User Experience Demo) and I tried to import them into CCS 5.2, when I lunch the debug it comes up with a message indicating that it was compiled using a different version of compiler and needs to install the previous version (which I do not have). I use the option to change the compiler, but a message comes up indicating that there are no building tools in that directory. It seems that the file names for the compiler that CCS is looking for are no the same names that are in the compiler directory.
Can I download the compiler tools, previous version or actual version? what are the file names for the building tools CCS is looking for?
I have found that there is a file missing, I tried to to use the RemoveRegistryKeys and SetupInCCSnRegistry found in the installation directory; when I lunch them they are looking for a file with the registry key entries. All other compiler sub-directories the file is named "compiler".
Do you know where can I get a copy of it? for CSS 5.2.
have you been modifying registry entries? I am not sure whether I can simply send you something here. As mentioned, I can send you the compiler offline if you wish. Simply send my a friend request.
CCS does not use the registry. It is expecting to find the file cl430.exe in the ccsv5/tools/compiler/msp430_4.1.0/bin/ directory.
Could you please try the following:
The \ccsv5\tools\compiler\msp430_4.1.0\bin exist, and it is not empty however the file cl430.exe is missing here the list of files in the mentioned directory.
Efectively, the compiler is missing. What should I do now?
I would like you send me the compiler offline, but excuse my ignorance, "friend request" where do I send that request?
I just sent you the request.
I just sent you the compiler and instruction offline. Please keep us informed,
You mentioned above that you've installed the compiler manually - what did you mean? Did you have to install/re-install the compiler after you've installed CCS?
Could you also try another thing in parallel - could you please try installing a complete CCS v5.2.0 again, into a clean new directory, and without modifying the registry? Let us know if all compilers install as expected, or if you see any error/warning messages during installation. If all compilers install successfully, you will see them all present on the Preferences > CCS > Build > Compilers page.
I think when I said Manually I was making reference to a manual selection of the directoru using the Windows>Preferences ... menu option. I did reinstall the whole CCS 5.2 one on top of the existing one and once removing everithing related to CCS 5.2.
I will install again CCS 5.2 as you sugest me, I'll let you know the results.
