Crossworks vs. ez430 USB?

Started by larwe January 12, 2008
I've got a strange problem. I'm trying to move some code over from IAR
Kickstart (where I developed it) to Crossworks (where I need to show
it working, for various reasons). The debugger I'm using is the ez430;
the target is a TI MSP430F2012 target board soldered to a larger
circuit. I can build fine, but if I click "build and debug" I get
various problems; either it pretends to run but really just sits
there, or it says it couldn't run to breakpoint (no breakpoints are
set). Verify usually fails.

I've tried it on a bare T2012 board with nothing attached, and using a
trivial piece of code that just blinks the LED. It looks as if it
can't even write the flash area reliably; very strange.

Same computer, same everything works fine with IAR.

I've tried copying msp430.dll from the IAR directory (2.1.10.1) to the
CrossWorks directory (was 2.1.7.0) with no discernible effect.

Has anyone got this working?

I don't think that CrossWorks supports the ez430. It isn't shown in the list of targets. Leon

It is supported, though (from an msp430.dll standpoint it's the same as a USB-FET) - and it's one of those "but it used to work!" things. I've just found that it works on another computer, and I'm up and running, but I'd like to know why it no worky (suddenly) on my spare PC.

You might try asking on the msp430 mailing list. I know that one or more guys from Rowley reads the list. -- Grant Edwards grante Yow! I'm also against at BODY-SURFING!! visi.com

Already in the side door on that one ;)
