    ProximityGesturesWithBLE - Unsuccessful - Requesting Help



      First off, I'm completely new to the PSoC and the world of CapSense so please speak slowly and clearly. ;)


      I have a Pioneer development kit with the PSoC 4 module (red board) installed (CY8CKIT-042-BLE).


      I also have the 'Shield' (CY8CKIT-024 CAPSENSE PROXIMITY SHIELD) for gesture sensing installed along with the jumper as prescribed in, pp 1-2:




      I grabbed the project from github here:




      When I opened up the Workspace, there were several components that were not up to date (PSoC Creator 4.0 couldn't find them).  So I updated all the components expecting that using the most up-to-date components would be the best route.  A list of components and their original and updated versions is attached.


      The program builds and loads into the PSoC just fine. 


      I can power the Pioneer board and I can pair and 'connect' the evaluation board with BLE to a PC running Windows 10 Pro. 


      I can not, however, get any gestures to do anything when looking at a gallery of photos..


      I am also not observing the LED illumination on the Shield as described in both the literature and shown in the video.


      I suspect that there is an issue reading the Shield, but I have made several attempts to 'debug' so I can see what the code is doing, but have not been successful.


      The information in the Output pane reads as follows:


      Device 'PSoC 4200 BLE CY8C4247LQ*-BL483' was successfully programmed at 11/15/2016 11:22:15.
      Continuing target program
      Error: dbg.M0015: Debugger exited unexpectedly during run.  Encountered error (Target disconnected See output window for more information.)




      PSoC Creator is running on W7 Pro 64-bit.


      The Pioneer board is powered from the W7 PC via USB.




      A) Has anyone out there had recent (2016) success with the Proximity Gesture Code in the PSoC 4 on the Pioneer board using PSoC Creator 4.0?  If so, what did you do to make the project function?


      B) Any pointers on how to get into a debug session?


      Thank you in advance for your time,
