  1. Thanks -- I will do some runs and show with a screen cast. But, you are saving to the desktop, this is a very magical place, and a good place to hardcode something, I wonder if you try saving in a C:\testing\Blink  -- what would happen?

     

    Anyway, I will show with video -- right now, just fighting the serial system without debugging :)

  2. Everyone,

     

    I am new to the Energia platform. I am a professional embedded developer, so rarely use Arduino like tools, well never :) Unless I am trying to teach someone how to get started. That said, I have a project that I was coding in TI Code Studio for a client, then I thought on this next project, much simpler, I would use Energia, so they could actually make changes to it -- 

     

    Anyway, I downloaded the Energia ZIP latest, there is no installer, so unzipped into directory. I then set it up, board selected MSP432 Launchpad, then started trying examples. Everything works perfectly.

     

    However, when I take ANY project, blink, you name it and save as and place into another directory, ANYWHERE -- then re-compile, I get:

     

    C:\Users\Andre\AppData\Local\Energia15\packages\energia\hardware\msp432\1.3.3\cores\msp432\gnu/targets/arm/rtsv7M/lib/boot.am4fg(startup.om4fg): In function `startupC':
     
    /db/vtree/library/trees/zumaprod/zumaprod-n06/exports/tirtos_full_2_20_00_06/products/bios_6_46_00_23/packages/gnu/targets/arm/rtsv7M/startup.c:76: undefined reference to `main'
     
    collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status
     
    exit status 1
    Error compiling for board LaunchPad w/ msp432 EMT (48MHz).
     
    In other words, the linker can't find main() -- so I am thinking, someone HARD coded a path somewhere and at this point, I can't save anything and then run it. Currently my work around is:
     
    1. Open any example project, compile, upload, test it, works.
    2. Take my source and copy into IDE, then compile, upload, it works.
    3. IF I then try to save, I get read only, since the examples are flagged read-only, thus I save as another name, in a number of directories, no matter what, THEN when I try to compile I always get:
     
    C:\Users\Andre\AppData\Local\Energia15\packages\energia\hardware\msp432\1.3.3\cores\msp432\gnu/targets/arm/rtsv7M/lib/boot.am4fg(startup.om4fg): In function `startupC':
     
    /db/vtree/library/trees/zumaprod/zumaprod-n06/exports/tirtos_full_2_20_00_06/products/bios_6_46_00_23/packages/gnu/targets/arm/rtsv7M/startup.c:76: undefined reference to `main'
     
    collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status
     
    exit status 1
    Error compiling for board LaunchPad w/ msp432 EMT (48MHz).
     
     
    I am getting frustrated here, the whole point of this was to try and give the customers something they might be able to put hands on, but this IDE needs to be solid -- 
     
    Anyway, any help or suggestions would be appreciated. 
     
    This should work out of box, "saving" the project should NOT break the application and IDE loose track of the build process, etc.
