    CY4672 RDK and PSoC Designer 5

    victor.carvajal
              Hello,   
      I wasn't sure if this is the proper forum to post questions about problems with the CY4672 RDK I was having, if not, please let me know where to post and I'll do so.   
         
      Essentially, I want to try and build the firmware for the various wireless usb components in this RDK. The supplied CD came with PSoC Designer 4.4, but the installer gave me an few errors:   
      1 popup error message: "Error reading setup initialization file"   
      2nd popup error message: "1158:"   
         
      Helpful I know, but it only gets better.   
      The RDK release notes explicitly mentions the development was using Designer 4.4 with PD44SP1 Build 111.   
         
      Anyhow, I had no choose but to download and try Designer 5. During the project conversion process Designer 5 does to the .SOC file, it creates some backups of the boot template and various other files.   
      In the end, when when I try to build the keyboard firmware, the linker complains about the following:   
      ....

                  Hello Carva,   
             
          It is a known issue that CY4672 RDK firmware gives errors when you try to build the code in PD5.0. Cypress Engineers are working on a permanent fix for these issues. However, you should be successfully able to build the code in PD4.4 if you have installed it properly after reading the release notes. Can you try installing the PD4.4 again from this location?

                    Hi Antg,   
            The software archive was exactly was I needed. Thanks for the link.   
            However, now I try to build the project using PD4.4 and it's complaining about my compiler license.   
            I've come across other posts that in PD5.0, the ImageCraft compiler is free and comes bundled with the installer. This seems to be separate for PD4.4, am I s*** out of luck once again?

                      Hello Carva,   
                 
              You did the right thing by creating a technical support case for this. We cannot provide you the compiler license in forum. I will give you the compiler license in the tech support case itself since I am handling that case :-)   
                 
              Regards,
