There is nothing secret / extra to run a PSoC when it is programmed, so you will have to concentrate on the differences between your two configurations.
Power supply: Voltage, Noise
I have and still not working. I have double checked the pin out diagram and the input and outputs thatI declare and proceed to connect it to the next stage of my circuit and yet still working wrong. I put pin number 28 (VDD) to 5V and pin number 14(VSS) to ground and use the other declared ports as inputs and outputs but the resulting signal is not what I should get (Already got it on the PSoC board).

There is no way out, there is an error in your board.
I asked for the noise on your 5V supply. How much is it?
Are you using an x-tal on any of your boards?
The 5V power supply is just fine, I am using a medical grade power supply and regarding the x-tal the answer is no, I am not using one, I am using the IC internal oscillator. I will keep testing it but for now it is just not working on my protoboard. Thanks for the help though.
" I am using a medical grade power supply" This is a quality guarant for man-safe design, but not for low noise.

You have a bypass on the protoboard of typically 10 uF
electrolytic and a .1 uF ceramic ? Next to Vdd lead.
The grounds are commoned to one rail on the board ?
You have looked at Vdd with scope, and see < ~ 200 mV noise pk - pk ?
Scope if DSO put on infinite persistence when you do this.
Post a picture of board and wiring.
Thanks, Dana. I checked everything. Now my circuit is working as it is supposed to.
BTW, Bob, a medical grade power supply is indeed a man-safe guarantee but it's also accurate with its technical specifications since it is made for medical applications. Thanks for not helping, though!
I had occasion as a field engineer to represent several companies
making medical grade power supplies. Noise, conducted and radiated,
was indeed very much a concern and speced. In light of the issues
surrounding EKG, EEG, and other sensor technologies, a lot of attention
and specification covered the topic of noise, shielding, transmission,
I worked (as FAE) on portable MRI machine where an extensive, beyond datasheet,
charcterization was done and manufacturer advised of changes to upgrade their
already low noise supplies. Capacitor technologies were also extensively examined.
As well as LCD display emitted noise and B/L inveter technology.
