I am trying to debug what appears to be a boot problem with my custom MSP430F5515 board. However, each time I connect to the target the CPU is stopped and reset by CCS, even if I have disabled those options in Project->Properties->Debug->Program/Memory Load->Connection Options->Halt the target on connect, and Reset the target on connect. This appears to be a bug that was fixed on the Stellaris platform (SDSCM00042646). Should the bug fix also work on the MSP430 devices? Can someone please verify this?
I just tried this in CCSv5. If the only thing I did was deselecting Halt the target on connect and Reset the target on connect as you mentioned, then I saw that the program still loaded so this means that it doesn't matter, you'll lose your place. The problem is because the options for loading the program and resetting the target when the program loads are still selected.
Here's what I did to successfully connect to a running target in CCSv5.5.0.00077:
Under Project > Properties > Debug:
Click Ok, and then go to the dropdown arrow to the right of the debug bug icon and select "Debug Configurations".
Now the debug view should come up, and the device should be connected but still running (if it was running already). You can click the pause button to see where in the program it currently is. If you want to confirm this process before using it to debug your problem project, you could try it with some working blinky code first to prove to yourself that it won't reset the part but will keep it running until you click halt.
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.
