I am trying to upload a "Blink" program to my MSP-EXP430G2. I have no problems uploading code successfully through Code Composer Studio. But if I try to update the same code through Energia, it won't work. The error message is: 

usbutil: unable to find a device matching 0451:f432
An error occurred while uploading the sketch

I have checked that the port number and board are correctly selected.


Could anyone offer any help troubleshooting this?


I want to use Energia over CCS, mainly so I can quickly and easily get a read-out of the serial port. But if anyone knows of an easy-to-setup way to read the serial port, then I could always just upload code via CCS and be done with it!


Many thanks in advance for any help offered.

Hi @emat86

Which version of Energia and what OS are you using? I suggest trying Energia V17 if you haven't already. Sometimes V18 seems to have problems with a G2 LaunchPad.
