Other Parts Discussed in Thread: UNIFLASH
Tool/software: Code Composer Studio
Hi guys, fairly new to the community so please excuse any transgressions.
Just got myself an ez430-F2013 development stick to evaluate the MSP430 as a basic microcontroller for small personal projects.
I've been trying to get it to work with CCS v8 for the past few hours since I got it but it appears that my laptop can't seem to install the drivers for the device.
1) Using CCS v8 because I'm running a 32-bit laptop
2) The ez430 shows up in Device Manager as "MSP-FET430UIF JTAG Tool", but it seems no driver is available for the device despite having installed CCS
3) I reckon it's coz of (2) that CCS can't identify it as a target to load my code into the f2013
3.1) Tried installing UniFlash 5.2.0 (as per suggestion in another thread) as well as older versions of CCS hoping they may have the drivers, didn't work.
4) I stumbled upon a number of threads both here in E2E and in the wider Internet with a Google search, with this one exactly mirroring the issue I got:
Is it really an issue originating from the factory? If it is, are there any options for a replacement to be shipped to me? And if it isn't, where could I get my hands on the drivers or a solution to this issue?
See attached pic for better understanding.
Ignore the Unknown Device, I believe it's my laptop's ambient light sensor that's been broken for a while now, so very much unrelated to the issue at hand.
