Welcome in the forum, Nick.
Capsense "Tuning" always uses the kitprog and will not work without a USB connection. Can you post your complete project, so that we all can have a look at all of your settings? To do so, use
Creator->File->Create Workspace Bundle (minimal)
and attach the resulting file.
thanks. Sorry I worded it a bit strangely. I only tune while connected via usb to the kitprog. My issue is that the sensitivity is fine when I tune it, but the act of disconnecting from the kitprog tuner and running in stand-alone makes the device not as sensitive as it was while tuning. I am reading the widget counts through BLE. I am wondering if the act of having it connected to the computer's ground while tuning is throwing off the calibration so that when I disconnect it and run it as a stand-alone device, the tuned values do not work optimally
Dis you verify, that your settings from tuning are taken over into your stand-alone version?
Could you please create the tech support case and attach the project so it will help us to debug the issue.
