The problem is with programming the Dongle using PSoC Creator 4.2.
I have downloaded the CY8CKIT042BLEAKITSetup_RevSB.exe file and run it in and selected the Repair option. This did not add the needed device.
The CySmart 1.3 program recognizes the device and connects just fine.
You can try using a MiniProg3 to program the CYBL11573-56LQXI on CY5677 CySmart BLE 4.2 USB Dongle (BLE Dongle) using latest PSoC Programmer 3.28.3 as stated on this forum thread too:

The Red Coloured dongle has CY8C4248LQI-BL583, it doesn't has CYBL11573-56LQXI as target device , its wrongly mentioned in Quick User guide.
You can program this red colored CY5677 dongle with PSoC Creator from the USB port, need not to connect a MiniProg3 for that.
Here is a picture of the instructions from the cy8ckit_042_ble_a_ble_pioneer kit_guide page 67 that I was attempting to follow. I see the difference in color but the dongle that I have says that it is CY5677 as well.
I was also following the instructions in this article: https://iotexpert.com/2017/05/11/psoc4-ble-central-using-cysmart-dongle/ . The dongle shown in the article is a CYBL-10152-56L. It is the dark colored dongle like mine but with a different chip.
Is there a way to change the firmware on the dongle that I have to allow it to be programmed via the USB bridge? Or must I buy the Miniprog3 as you suggest?
Thanks again for your help!
Can you please install latest PSoC Programmer 3.28.3 if you don't have it already.
If you don't have Red colored Dongle then, you can program it with PSoC Programmer only not with latest PSoC Creator 4.2.
Can you give it a try and share your observation here.
A screenshot will be good to provide if you are unable to program (or simple Erase all) while using PSoC Programmer with your dongle.
You can see above that the PSOC Programmer is up to date with the latest version and that it is connected properly with the Dongle. I was able to upgrade the firmware with the Dongle.
The problem with creating the Hex file in PSOC Creator is that I don't have access to this PROC device compiler. If I choose another device and build the hex file and then try to program the Dongle with it using the PSOC Programmer I get the following error.
If there is no way to add this device profile to PSoc Creator then what software is recommended to use to program this device?
Please install PSoC Creator 3.3 from this link:
And try to create the hex for the required PRoC device.
PS: A creator project opened in latest version of Creator will not get opened in older version of PSoC Creator.
