I have a setup that has been working quite well for quite a long time uptil now.

Suddenly, my psocprogrammer software has stopped working.  All it does is come up this screen stating that "psocprogrammer.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close."

I thought it could be related to .net framework or maybe a corrupted installation of cypress tools.  So, I uninstalled all cypress tools and re-installed them.  I still get the same error.

I also tried "Repair"ing the .net frameworks on my machine.  Still no luck

I have simultaneously opened a case with Cypress so that I could get a speedy response.  I'm stuck with this problem.

Has anyone seen such behaviour before and possibly guide me where to look?

Please let us know the .net framework you are using. Is it the same mandated by the CyInstaller.

I have been using the PSOC software since years.  I have the mandated .net frameworks installed.  After a hint from cypress support (mycase), I uninstalled all .net versions on my machine and re-installed .net3.5.  That solved the problem.

I appreciate  your help.
