MSP430F2619: MSPBootProjectCreator.pl does not open

Part Number: MSP430F2619

I am trying to create a custom bootloader using the MSPBootProjectCreator.pl script, as shown in the slaa600d.pdf. Every time I double click the .pl file, a command prompt window opens and immediately closes.

I did follow the perl.org link and installed ActivePerl 5.28 to run the script, but it seems I'm missing something. Any advice would be appreciated.

Script referenced in section 4.1.1.1: https://www.ti.com/lit/slaa600

  • I solved my issue by running in command prompt.

    1. open Command Prompt and go to file location by typing

    "cd C:\Users\ ... \MSPBoot\Utilities\Project_Creator "

    2. Enter "perl MSPBootProjectCreator.pl"

    From there, follow the instructions listed in the pdf
