CCS/TIDA-00449: Can't connect TIDA-00449 with the MSP-EXP430G2ET, Unknown device

Part Number: TIDA-00449

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio


I have connected the SBWTDIO, SBWTCK, 3V3 and GND pins from the MSP430 launchpad to the TIDA-00449 board. When I try to flash the given firmware on the board I get "MSP430: Error connecting to the target: Unknown device". Tried flashing the MSP430 on the Launchpad and it works. 

Is it a problem that I have the TIDA board powered from the launchpad? The board has no other power supply connected.

Thanks in advance.
