Does anyone use the Olimex MSP430-JTAG-ISO with the IAR Kickstart IDE?

Please reply if you do.

And if you can tell us how to get the Olimex MSP430-JTAG-ISO to work
with IAR v3.41a, we would appreicate hearing from you.

After following the instructions from Olimex's readme file, IAR always
crashes with a runtime error.

***Contents of Olimex's readme file provided with their drivers***

What's new in firmware 1.011:

- all new MSP430 devices released by Texas Instruments to October 2006
are now supported
Brief installation notes:
1. For new users which install drivers for very first time:
-----------------------
plug your USB cable to MSP430-JTAG-TINY or MSP430-JTAG-ISO
when Windows ask you for drivers, browse to the directory where you
unpacked 1.010\Drivers
copy and replace all DLLs to your IDE working directory (it's not bad
to make backup copy of the original DLLs you have)
for Embedded Workbench this directory is ...430\bin

Note: in some cases for MSP430-JTAG-TINY Windows will report that it
can't find drivers for the USB device, in this case you have to run
PreInstaller.exe and to re-boot your computer then try again. This is
not necessary for MSP430-JTAG-ISO.

2. For old users just replace the old DLLs with the new ones
------------------------
have a fun!
