To Olimex developer Team:
I am using CrossWorks for MSP430
Release 22.214.171.1243011000.17172 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: 126.96.36.199 (MSP430.dll)
The problem: when I right click the mouse over the "MSP-OLIMEX" icon, and try to "Connect", I get:
"Internal error detected. CrossStudio must close."
I already contated CrossStudio team, and they tell they´re not liable for this error!!!
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.
I tried the two links. When I connect:
1 - Test with MSP430.dll, version 188.8.131.52 - 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.
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,
Solved. It works either on Windows XP and Windows7.
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 184.108.40.2063011000.17172 (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
Thank you, Paulo! Very well detailed step-by-step explanation.
I am sure a lot of people will find your post helpful!
