Can you please open a terminal and type the following command?

kextstat -b com.FTDI.driver.FTDIUSBSerialDriver

If it does not show something like the below then the driver was not loaded:

Index Refs Address            Size       Wired      Name (Version) UUID <Linked Against>
  533    0 0xffffff7f831ad000 0x7000     0x7000     com.FTDI.driver.FTDIUSBSerialDriver (2.3) ECC3AF36-431D-370D-86F2-5237785E9CF8 <110 52 5 4 3 1>

In that case try:

 find /Library/Extensions/ -name *FTDI*

This should show something like the below if the driver was installed. If not then reinstall the driver. If it does show something like the below then read on.


If the driver is indeed installed and exists in /Library/Extensions then try to force load it with the following command and check id the Serial port shows up in Energia.

sudo kextload -b com.FTDI.driver.FTDIUSBSerialDriver

After this you can check if the driver is loaded with the command I listed above.
