Question: How to install PSoC Programmer and drivers on Windows 8?
Kindly follow this procedure to program your PSoC device with Windows 8 OS:-
1) Upgrade your Programmer to 3.17 from the link “http://www.cypress.com/?rID=38050&source=header”.
2) This step is based on the type of OS:-
a. If your Windows is 32 bit then download “drivers_32bit.zip” fille in your computer. Unzip this file and copy folder “drivers” at location “C:\Program Files\Cypress\Programmer\3.17\”.
b. If your Windows is 64 bit then download “drivers_64bit.zip” fille in your computer. Unzip this file and copy folder “drivers” at location “C:\Program Files (x86)\Cypress\Programmer\3.17\”.
3) Go inside the folder “drivers” which you have copied and run the “driver.bat” file.
4) Plug-in MiniProg3 in the USB port of the PC, you should be able to see it in device manager.
5) And you will be able to program you devices now.

but where can I get that ,and how. I really need the details.
ps:I can not google the answer ,please help.
Drivers are attached in this thread, see post#4 for 64-bit
Thanks,it really works.Perfect!
So after installing prgrammer 3.22.0 on a 64bit Windows 8 machine, there is no programmer.exe file generated. The link on the startpage points to a file that is not there. Have tried repairing, removing, and reinstalling several times, with no luck.
Have tried updating drivers as well but that doesn't work either.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
If it did not show up in -
C:\Program Files (x86)\Cypress\Programmer\PSoCProgrammer.exe
I would file a CASE -
