Part Number: CCSTUDIO
Tool/software: Code Composer Studio
I have a fresh installation of CCSv7 on my MacBookPro running MacOS El Capitan. The Resource Explorer window reports that the server fails to start.
There were no other installations made, so the install is clean. The workspace is new and empty.
The advice I can find on these forums and from web searches includes the following:
As far as I can tell, the CCS platform is unusable without Resource Explorer. So, there is no easy work-around that would ignore the issue.
Is there a log file some place explaining what CCS is doing and why it is failing? What other advice is given for bringing CCS up on MacOS?
Here is the tirex log file.

In reply to JohnS:
Please check if there's an old node process hanging around and kill it. Then restart CCS.
In reply to OliverP:
Were you able to try Oliver's suggestion.
He is referring to this process:
There is no node process running when CCS quits. When I start Resource Explorer, two node processes start. After I receive the failure message, there is only one node process active. Closing CCS terminates the remaining node process.
As explained in the original post, I tried rebooting the machine. Running CCS after a fresh boot makes no difference.
When Resource Explorer starts up it tries to discover existing installed packages in the ti folder. It could be that there's a package in your folder that causes some problems. We can check this by temporarily pointing Resource Explorer to another folder. Please create a new empty folder (e.g. ~/ti_test) and then change the "contentPath" setting in the app_localserver.json file to this new folder. The file is located in the CCS installation folder: ccsv7/tirex/ti-rex-core/config/app_localserver.json
As this was a fresh install, I would have been very surprised to see this make a difference. It did not.
I created a new directory ~/ti/tirex_content and pointed tirex's configuration to that directory. On startup, REX created a 'zips/' directory, but nothing is ever downloaded to it.
Are there any log files we can activate to see what TIREX is doing? It seems like getting some information about the state of the program would help narrow down our search for a solution. I posted a log file to this bug. Does it help? Are there any verbosity flags we can enable?
