Title: CrossStudio 2.2 crahes with Olimex JTAG-TINY
Post by: ppilon on February 14, 2013, 04:19:40 pm
To Olimex developer Team:

I am using CrossWorks for MSP430
Release 2.2.0.2013011000.17172 Windows x86
AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1075T Processor 3.00 GHz
8.00 GB RAM
Windows 7 Ultimate Service Pack 1
Target Driver DLL Path $(PackageDir)/targets/msp430/Olimex$(HostDLL)
C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\Rowley Associates Limited\CrossWorks for MSP430\packages\targets\msp430\olimex.dll
DLL version: 1.0.4.2 (MSP430.dll)

The problem: when I right click the mouse over the "MSP-OLIMEX" icon, and try to "Connect", I get:
"Unrecoverable failure"
"Internal error detected. CrossStudio must close."

I already contated CrossStudio team, and they tell they┬┤re not liable for this error!!!

Regards,

Paulo

Hey Paulo,

I wonder if the problem happens when you use older iteration of the drivers: https://www.olimex.com/Products/MSP430/JTAG/_resources/MSP430.dll (https://www.olimex.com/Products/MSP430/JTAG/_resources/MSP430.dll) or https://www.olimex.com/Products/MSP430/JTAG/_resources/OLIMEX-MSP430-DLL-drivers-1.039.zip (https://www.olimex.com/Products/MSP430/JTAG/_resources/OLIMEX-MSP430-DLL-drivers-1.039.zip)? Please replace the dll in the respective CCS folder.

Best regards,
Lub/OLIMEX

I tried the two links. When I connect:
1 - Test with MSP430.dll, version 1.0.4.1 - Effect: CrossStudio 2.2 halts goes to "ghost window", reboot was needed and done.
2 - Test with Package 1.039 - Effect: CrossStudio 2.2 changes the firmware of the JTAG and then show the same message: "Unrecoverable failure: Internal error detected. CrossStudio must close".
Problem not solved.

Rgds,

Paulo

Dear Developing team:

Please help me as soons as possibile.
The CrossStudio team says that it Olimex's fault that their program is crashing!
I think already tried everything, including firmware downgrades.
I really need my framework working.

Waiting hear from you soon,

Paulo

Title: Solved: CrossStudio 2.2 crahes with Olimex JTAG-TINY
Post by: ppilon on February 22, 2013, 08:49:44 pm
Solved. It works either on Windows XP and Windows7.
Tasks:
1 - uninstall Rowley 2.1.
2 - uninstall Rowley 2.2.
3 - Using RegEdit, delete all references to "Rowley" and all references to "CrossStudio" must also be removed
4 - Remove directory "C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Local\Rowley Associates Limited"
5 - Remove directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\Rowley Associates Limited"
6 - Install CrossStudio version 2.2.0.2013011000.17172 (Windows x86)
7 - Install Olimex package OLIMEX-MSP430-DLL-drivers-1.042.zip
8 - This configuration works on Olimex's MSP430-JTAG-TINY-V2 as well on MSP430-JTAG-TINY
