Hi GDN, Welcome to the PSOC world,
You have to download PSoC Creator, not Designer.

And also you can download Software of DEVKIT-050

CY8CKIT-050 PSoC 5LP DVK Setup (Kit Design Files,
Creator, Programmer, Documentation, Examples)
PSOC Designer is used to write code for the PSOC1 devices. You will need to install PSOC creator for the PSOC3, PSOC4 and PSOC5.
The landing page for the kit is :
there you can find a link to download PSOC creator and an archive with the fuill documentation and code examples. You can also download an DVD Image (ISO file) with the full contents of the kit's DVD to burn on a blank media or mount on a virtual drive.
Thanks for your help! OK, I have everything loaded, clicked on an example project, compiled successfully. However, when I go to program it I get a message that says "the device was recognized, but psoc designer does not support using it at this time. Any help would be appreciated.
zeta and I said use Creator, not Designer.
The -050 kit had a change in silicon on it. Does your kit have a PSOC 5LP part on it ?
Or the older PSOC 5 ? PSOC 5LP is the recommended part of choice for PSOC 5
designs. If you have the older board you can get an upgraded board from www.cypress.com/
If the board P/N is CY8C5568AXI-060 TQFP100 that is the older board.
