Matt’s Tips: What if I need PSoC Creator on a machine with no (or spotty) internet connection? Can I order a DVD?
I get this question from time to time. It's not unheard of to have a machine isolated from the network for security or privacy reasons. Sometimes you may have a lab/manufacturing machine with no need for an internet connection. What then if you need PSoC Creator or Programmer?
Fortunately you can order a FREE DVD of PSoC Creator. You can order it from the PSoC Creator page, http://www.cypress.com/creator/, or from the link on the Downloads page (did you know we have one of those?)
Here's a screen shot from the PSoC Creator page.
Your free DVD will arrive somewhere between a few days and a week depending on whether or not we are restocking with DVDs containing the latest release. Having PSoC Creator on DVD is a nice option for those of you that have spotty internet connections or don't want to download half a gigabyte using your home connection.
Now, what if you don't want to wait for the DVD but you need Creator installed on a machine with no internet or network access?
Answer: Use the ISO Disk Image file. You can use that file to burn your own DVD or use software to make the file appear as though it were a DVD in a DVD drive. We even have a KB article describing how to do that. See KBA 82939.
The ISO file may be found either on the Downloads page (yes, we have one) OR the Downloads Tab of the PSoC Creator home page. See the screenshot below.
If you have any question on Creator DVDs or any downloading questions in general, hit me up in the comments (It may take a bit for your comment to show up. All must be approved because of all the great deals on Rolodexes out there).
