Part Number: MSP430F2012
Tool/software: Code Composer Studio
Using previous versions of CCS 7, one could select various Erase Options when using a MSP430F2012 device.
Using CCS V8.3 there are no "Download Options" or "Erase Options" - where do I find these settings?
I have read through the documentation but there is no mention of the problem I am experiencing.
Any help would be appreciated.
There should be a whole section there in CCSv8.3
If I go to the Debug settings for an MSP430 project this is what I see:
If I go to the debug configuration dialog I see them there as well:
Maybe try deleting the debug configuration. In my second screen shot you can select the debug configuration on the left and then click on the red X. Close the dialog. The next time you launch a debug session for the project it will regenerate the configuration. For some reason yours seems to be missing the entire section for flash options.

MSP430F2012.xml.zipOk I have a workaround. In the attached zip file there is an updated MSP430F2012.xml file.
Copy this file into <install dir>/ccsv8/ccs_base/common/targetdb/devices and replace the file that is there.
For me doing that triggered CCS to pickup the new file and use it. If it doesn't for you then exit CCS and then launch CCS from the command prompt Ccstudio.exe -clean That will flush the cache of those files.
Good Day John,
I followed your instructions and everything is now working as it should.
Thanks very much for your prompt response !
There seems to be a side-effect to the new xml file.
When I launch the debugger I get the message as below.
If I press "Ignore" the debug session continues without any obvious problems.
However, we use this device in production quantities (1k+ per month) and we need to keep a sharp eye out for anything out of the ordinary.
If I use the "old" xml file then I don't get this message, and the debug session continues as normal.
