I had a sililiar problem and searched HDD for gcc.exe and
placed its path into the build settings, compiler, additional
I added every directory underneath 'gnu_cs\arm\4.8.4' and it did not make any difference.
I can call arm-none-eabi-gcc.exe from the command line without problems, it just won't work from within creator.
<winge mode> I am not a windows user and nothing I ever see of it convinces me that is a bad choice
This stuff would be so much better if it wasn't tied to windows</winge mode> :-)
Creator runs under win vista without any troubles on one of my machines.
If you haven't tried yet: de-install Creator and re-install it with admin rights.
If all fails, create a "MyCase" to get help from a Cypress engineer: At top of this page under Support & Community -> Technical Support -> Create a MyCase.
Thanks, I managed to temporarily scrounge another laptop running XP from a colleague and Creator is working fine. That is all I need for the moment.
For anybody that may have a similar problem and read this in the future.
I changed the path env variable in Windows to include the path to cc1.exe included with PSoC Creator and now the software is working 100%.
Thank you very much for sharing your experiences with us. I was thinking about if it might be the case that the installation was not run completely with admin rights.
