CCS V6.13: driverlib project template missing

Hello,

I'm new to CCS and working through the MSP Design workshop.

When I tried to use the driverlib template from File -> New CCS Project...
I was missing the MSP430 DriverLib -> Empty Project...(s. picture)


Instead my New Project Dialog looks like:

What am I doing wrong?
MSPWare was installed via CCS App Center and included Driverlib.
Do I have to "add" Driverlib manually and how?

Thank you for your help!

  • Hello,
    I'm going to guess that the first graphic is for an older version of CCS since the default MSP430 compiler shown is an older version of the compiler. In more current versions of CCS, the project templates have changed with reduced emphasis on templates and more emphasis on using examples provided from MSPWare via the Resource Explorer. I do see an empty driver template example based on TI-RTOS but you would need to install TI-RTOS for MSP to have it available.

    Hope this helps!

    Hellp Ki,

    well I used the latest available Design Workshop for CCS v6.1 here:
    processors.wiki.ti.com/.../Getting_Started_with_the_MSP430_LaunchPad_Workshop 

    But I seems the Workshop PDF needs an update (it's v4.01 wheras all other documents are v4.60... ?)

    Thank you anyway!

    Yes, page 6 of that PDF refers to CCSv5 so it does look like a dated version. CCSv5 is still available if you wish to use the versions recommended by the labs:

  • In reply to Ki-Soo Lee:

    The Driverlib user's guide incorrectly states that you create a new Driverlib project using the "Empty Project with Driverlib Source" CCS template - there is in fact no such CCS template.

    Instead, you'll find the empty project located as shown below, on the TI resource Explorer tab (just above the actual example projects for your processor type).

    Then follow the instructions on the right pane and you'll end up with your empty project.
