I'm working on a project where I need to send simple text data to the msp430 over bluetooth. Using the simple application I've been able to create a connection between the two and create a virtual COM port however I'm unable to open that COM port though hyperterminal and the AutoPortDetect program reports that no valid MSP430 COM ports are found on the machine. Once the connection was made I had thought I'd at least be able to see data being sent from the MSP and I'd be able to modify it to echo data being sent as a start, but I'm not sure why I'm unable to at least view the COM port.
This seems to be a USB driver issue. Are you using the MSP430-EXP430F5438 Experimenter board? If yes, do you see the "MSP430 Application UART" listed on the device manager under COM ports?
After connecting over Bluetooth I'm able to see the MSP and view the SPP connection COM port in Bluetooth services. I am using the F5438 board.
I am a little confused with your setup. Could you explain the complete HW and SW setup please? Are you connecting two experimenters boards via Bluetooth? or you have a experimenter board connected to a BT Stack in the PC? If yes, where is the issue? on the experimenter board or on the BT stack?
