I am experiencing very slow debugger response with CCS4.2.5 and the MSP-FET430UIF. The target is a MSP430F2274. Responding to a breakpoint previously was very fast and the watch window and PC updated almost instantly. Now the IDE will hang or gray screen for several seconds before the PC cursor is displayed and several seconds later the watch or local window will update. I will sometimes get error messages such as " cannot read memory block at..." or occasionally it cannot find the MSP-FET430UIF
I have tried several different target boards that had normal debugging behaviour previously with the same result. I have also tried different MSP-FET430UIF and USB cables. I am running CCS4.2.5 on Win7 64 bit on a Core2Quad. I tried using the -clean switch with eclipse.exe with no change in the debugger behaviour and then tried deleting the .metadata subdir. That made a slight improvement. Updating CCS made no change.
Have you maybe installed some software which might be interfering with USB and/or COM-Ports?
This sounds quite strange, the CCSv4.2 is a lot slower than the CCSv5.1, but I've never experienced a hanging IDE and the delay you describe.
Don't know if you already posted this in the Code Composer Studio forum? Maybe someone there knows this behaviour already.

I haven't changed anything in terms of drivers or software. I originally posted this in the CCS forum and it was moved.
Try to restore defaults options on the CCS debug tab.
I observed a similar behaviour. In my case the open "Watch" and "Memory" windows were the culprits (Obviously not the windows itself but the kind/amount of data displayed).
After closing these two windows everything went back to normal speed.
