CY3280-SmartSense kit example project does not work from default location with Windows 7 and Windows Vista operating system

Question: Why CY3280-SmartSense kit example project does not work from default location with Windows 7 and Windows Vista operating system ?

 

Answer:

If the CY3280-SmartSense evaluation kit content is installed in a computer using installer, example projects are located in the default location “C:\Program Files\Cypress\CY3280-SmartSense\1.0\CY3280-SmartSense\Firmware”. If the example project is opened using PSoC Designer from the same location, it cannot be build and PSoC Designer 5.1 generates errors.

This is because Windows Vista and Windows 7 restrict access to 'Program Files' folders for OS security settings. To successfully build the project using PSoC Designer, the example project folder  "Firmware" should be copied to a location other than 'Program Files' in the computer to successfully build the project.
