Part Number: MSP-FET
**This is an informative post and all replies will be ignored. If you have questions or issues, please make a new E2E post and reference this one. Thank you. **
There is a known issue when using MSP-FETs with serial number starting with the digits "17" or greater with versions of CCS below v7.0, IAR EW430 v7.1 and IAR EWARM v8.10. The issue can also affect old versions of the MSP430-Flasher (in this case update to the latest version). The issue can exhibit as a "Could not set device Vcc" error message or other error messages. This is because these older versions of the IDEs were released before this latest version of the MSP-FET tool, and therefore do not recognize and handle the new tools correctly.
The preferred solution is to update to the latest version of CCS or IAR. However, if updating is not an option in your case, please install the appropriate patch for your CCS or IAR version. The table summarizes version compatibility and available patches:

In reply to Jace H:
I am using MSP-FET with Serial number starts from 1401, I am trying to use it with CCS V5.5.
As I have been using CCS V7 , so MSP-FET firware updated to latest. Now I cannot use it with V5.5
I have to use V5.5 since there is an example code of MSP-EXP430F5438 is not compiling with latest CCS Versions. It is comliing with older Version of V5.5.
Now I cannot load this code to Flash due to this mismatch.
Please provide any solution, or alternative way to program the board.
