I am using a Launchpad 430 to program a custom board that uses an MSP430G2553IRHB32R chip from TI. I am doing this on a Windows 10 machine. Anyway, I have 2 problems. 1. I cannot upload my program onto the custom board because I get a 'Could not find device (or device not supported) (error=4)' error. 2. The MSP430G2553IRHB32R has 32 pins on it and the Launchpad has 20. I need to use all 32 pins. So, is there a tutorial somewhere that explains how to make alterations to energia to allow it to support custom boards and other chip pinouts? How do I get my new board to appear in the list of boards? The Boards Manager just lets me pick from some predefined packages. How do I add my own package? I've scoured the internet and found little bits and pieces about changing the Boards.txt file and the Pins_Energia.h file. However, these postings say things like "just add the appropriate pins to the pins_energia.h" or "add your board to the boards.txt file".. The problem is that I don't know how to do that. Can somebody please let me know in precise detail (catered to an energia newbie) in a step by step format how to do this? I love the simplicity of Energia, but when you're not coding directly on a Launchpad, it's really hard to figure out how to get things to work on it. Thanks so much for your assistance with this, Curtis
I'm trying to install the board driver for the MSP432P401R in Energia MT, and it hangs up. IAfter installed PDinst64.exe, it says: Downloading tools: (3/3). Downloaded 24,440kb of 82,014kb And has said so for the last 15 minutes. This is not the first time. Previously it had hung on about 2kb out of 7kb. This topic page downloads fine, so what gives? Also, it cannot be stopped by clicking on the Cancel or Close buttons. I have to go into Win7 Task Manager and kill Energia there. More than once.
