Did you try resetting the dongle by pressing the reser button. It works in many cases. If it still doesn;t run, please contact Cypress Tech Support.

Yeah I tried that also. I will keep messing with it and if I can't get it working I will submit a support ticket or maybe just buy a second one and try it. Only $20. Thank you.
Man I got after the USB dongle with the microscope at work here at National Instruments and it looks like someone went after the dongle with a razor knife and tried to scrape the crap out between the pins on the 5LP. Also the programmer 10 pin connector is melted from all the rework done to it. Do they do any test engineering at the factory. I set it up in creator and tried to debug it but it just hangs at the CY_ISR(IntDefaultHandler) . I'm just going to assume it was some reworked hand me down that was shipped to Digi-Key as a new in box part and I got unlucky. I will just order a new one to much hassle for a $20 dongle.
Looks like the new dongle worked seamlessly like it was supposed to. Maybe it was a defective return to Digi-Key that got put back on the shelf. The one I got from cypress direct was pristine compared to the other one.
