Mac: No such file or directory when uploading

Recommended Posts


Uploading a sketch on OSX 10.13.6 will not succeed.
I have replaced mspdebug with version 0.22 (was 0.24).

The *.hex file exists and is readable.

Any thoughts?



Energia: 1.8.7E20 (Mac OS X), Board: "MSP-EXP430G2 w/ MSP430G2553"


MSPDebug version 0.22 - debugging tool for MSP430 MCUs

For anyone else, the steps to get this working are:

  1. Download and install PlatformIO (which is an extension for VS Code): https://docs.platformio.org/en/latest/ide/vscode.html#installation
  2. Rearrange your folder structure to be compatible w/ what PlatformIO expects (the readme goes into more detail).  https://www.dropbox.com/s/0twl3np2yw8q0iv/Screenshot 2018-10-11 17.31.50.png?dl=0
  3. You may also need to do a bit more work to construct a PlatformIO project file (my project already came with that, so I didn't need to do this step).
