Failure to run Programmer tool in CyClockWizard

Question: When I try to run the programmer tool in CyClockWizard, I get the error message Failed to load CyMinProg3 service!  How can I deal with this error?

 

Answer:

CyClockWizard software serves several purposes.  For programmable clocks, it can be used to define a device configuration.  Certain devices can then also have the defined configuration programmed into the device non-volatile memory using a supported programmer kit and CyClockWizard software.

When attempting to use the CyClockWizard programming tool for the first time, it is possible to receive a software error: Failed to load CyMinProg3 service!  The attached document explains the simple work around for this error.
