Missing MSPWare in resource explorer

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSPWARE, MSP430WARE

Hello

I've installed MSPWare via CCS 6.1.3's app center. Though the installation went fine, it does not show in the resource explorer.

I'm using Windows 10. I can manually add the package in the explorer by pointing it to c:\ti\MSP430Ware_3_40_00_19 but this doesn't seem to install the extras or custom icons or functionality I'd expect (just a undocumented list of the project files contained in the directory).

I've tried uninstalling CCS and reinstalling it (once selecting the optional "MSPWare" add-on during installation, another time installing without then manually adding it via the app center) but MSPWare still does not appear in the resource explorer.

Any suggestions?

Matt

  • Matt,

    Interesting; I saw the same issue as you: the MSP430Ware 3.40.00.19 installed but it was not promptly acknowledged by TI Resource Explorer on my Windows 10 Pro 64. In order to add it correctly I had to click on the Add packages button and point to the following directory to properly acknowledge all the paths, icons, etc.

    C:\ti\MSP430Ware_3_40_00_19\MSP430Ware_win

    I will double-check what may be happening with the install procedure and get back to this thread.

    Just one question: you are using CCSv6.1.3.00034, right?

    Regards,

  • Hi Rafael

    Yes that's right, I am using the latest 6.1.3.00034 version. I'm away from my laptop at the moment so can't verify whether pointing to the *_win sub folder includes the icons etc. but will check when I can.

    Many thanks

  • Matt,

    It seems the MSP430Ware package is at fault in this case, as I can see the same thing happening in Windows 7 which also has other packages previously installed via the App Center. I will contact some folks in the MSP team and see if they can comment on this.

    I apologize for the inconvenience,

    Rafael 

  • Hi Rafael

    Thanks for the confirmation.

    I can get the equivalent functionality by pointing resource explorer to the MSP430Ware_win subfolder as you suggested, so that's fine for me now - but yes, having this happen out the box again will certainly save confusion for first-time installers!
