Thank you for the Stellaris support, but when I try to upload "Blink" I keep getting "Cannot run program "E:\ENERGI~1\HARDWARE\TOOLS\LM4F\BIN\arm-none-eabi-g++" CreateProcess error=2 File not found".

 

 

EDIT: Fixed this by renaming energia's folder from "energia-0101E0009" or so to "ener9", name seems to be an issue. Fix this please or note somewhere that folder name can't be longer than 6 characters.

Well very happy to see thr new version , However , tried it with the Stellaris Launchpad , No go !!!, in either Linux or Windows versions :-

 

No sign of a virtual USB com port to connect to !! , with the MSP430 launchpad it comes up on my computer as Com8 in XP , and all works well

 

I'm almost tempted to believe that there has been a change of firmware in the recent production as the "Project 0" reference to controlling the board by the virtual com port does not work either as there is NO virtual com port ( tried with both of the Stellaris boards I received three days ago and on my desktop and two laptops !! all XP)

 

When I connect the Stellaris Launchpad in Windows XP  I get a message " Found new hardware , In circuit debug interface "  Device manager shows three instances of "In circuit debug interface" but no com port ,  MSP430 Launchpad connection shows "MSP430 Application UART (Com(x))

Linux  shows up "f432 Texas Instruments, Inc. eZ430 Development Tool" with the MSP430 board connected and "1cbe:00fd Luminary Micro Inc"  with the Stellaris connected

<>SNIP>

 

I have to take back my previous comments !!

 

Something very odd going on as far a my old Windows setups , Energia in a  clean fresh install of XP works fine with both the 430 and Stellaris Launchpads , but my old XP setups  just do not "take" the Stellaris icdi drivers ,  ??   the installation process seems to work , but checking in Device Manager shows that the drivers do not get installed !!! 

 

Looks it's back to the old "Have you reinstalled Windows lately" scenario ( And that's why I wanted to get out of Windows in the first place ):-)

 

Linux still a problem though , but it always has been for me !!!

What drivers are needed to access the LaunchPad on Windows? I installed the "Stellaris ICDI Drivers" and the LaunchPad shows up as "Stellaris Virtual Serial Port (COM3)", "Stellaris OCDO DFI Device" and "Stellaris ICDI JTAG/SWD Interface" in the device manager, COM3 is available in the "Tools/Serial Port" menu of Energia. But when I try to upload the Blink example I get the following error message:

Binary sketch size: 1.916 bytes (of a 262.144 byte maximum)
Failed!
No ICDI device with USB VID:PID 1cbe:00fd found!

I confirmed that the Serial Port Device has the correct VID:

 

USB\VID_1CBE&PID_00FD&REV_0100&MI_00

For the record, I'm using Windows 8.

That's the same problem and error message I have in Ubuntu 12.04 , lsusb shows "1cbe:00fd Luminary Micro Inc."

You can also try downloading the LMFlashProgrammer from the TI website, (http://www.ti.com/tool/lmflashprogrammer) and see if it recognizes your board.

 

Other USB ports yield the same result (tried ports on an USB hub, on the docking station and on the laptop itself). The link to the flash programmer ends in a 404 page.

 

Edit:

I tried it on a second machine with Windows 7, same drivers, same device, same Energia ... it works there. I tend to blame Windows 8 for now.
