PSOC Designer 4.3 Doesn't Work on Win 7 / XP Mode

Postby Mr_E » Fri Oct 28, 2011 12:28 pm

We have about 50 projects under PD4.3 build 1884. I am upgrading computers from XP -> Win7. Due to the number of legacy projects I maintain, upgrading to a new version of PD is a last resort. In addition, it appears I have to upgrade projects to PD4.4 before I can upgrade to PD5.2. Can anyone confirm this?

PSOC Designer 4.3 will not run under Win7. It crashes even faster after PD4.3 SP2 is installed. Setting program compatibility to "XP SP3" does not help.
PD4.3 installs nicely under the Win7 program "XP Mode". However, after the virtual machine restarts, it takes a long time to start, then states "could not enable integration features". This means I cannot map drives, USB connections, copy/paste from native OS, move mouse in/out of VM, or even resize the XP mode window. This makes PD unusable. I have deleted and reinstalled the "XP Mode" virtual machine several times. It does not break until I install PD4.3, so I have to fault PD.

I will be opening a support case with Cypress, and will post findings here.

Yes, you have to upgrade your 4.3 projects to 4.4 before opening them in 5.2.
Backward compatibility is guaranteed for projects starting from 4.4.
If you experience any issues and even if you don't, contacting Cypress support will be very helpful.

The reply from Cypress:

Thanks for contacting Cypress Tech Support.

Regarding to your issue, the answer is yes, Projects which were generated with PD 4.3 or earlier have to be upgraded with PD 4.4 firstly, before using PD5.2.

PD 5.0 sp6 or earlier version is not support Win7. So you have to find another machine which runs Win XP OS, install PSoC Desginer 4.4 to update current projects.

Sorry for the inconvenience that caused to you.

Regards,
Roy Liu

This means we have to upgrade each of our projects twice. Crap.

I am successfully running PSoC Designer 5.2 on Win Vista and Win7 without any flaws.
I would suggest you to de-install your current version completely and then download and install it again, though this procedure takes its time.
