I have been recently using the MSP430G2 launchpad through the Energia IDE. It was super easy to get started with Energia since I am from Arduino background, but I am not able to get my serial monitor to work on my machine. I have checked the following things
1. I am able to upload the code to MSP, even the blink code works fine. So my drivers are good and I have selected the right COM port.
2. I checked if the Rx and Tx pins are are in proper position
3. I also tried using other serial monitors like putty, but nothing helped.
Its strange that I am able to upload codes but can user the serial COM. Please help, I really miss the option for debugging.
I am using Windows 8.1
