 Hi neha,

 

The 30 day evaluation license is still provided with PSoC Creator Software.  If you are having trouble registering the license, please file a case.

 

Thanks,

srim

Hi Srim, Dana!

the last cy8c001 i had purchased last yr may had 30 days license, this new one not having from very first day.In case i am using downloaded PSoC Creator 2.0 component pack from internet it shows that the device is not supported( even auto select device not working). So i unstalled it and installed the CD given with the kit.

The version of Keil installed is Microvision 3 or 4?

  Hi Neha,

You can register your Keil licence using following 2 methods:

From Keil MicroVision IDE:

1. Go to Uv4.exe (that gets installer along with PSoC Creator) in C:\Program Files\Cypress\PSoC Creator\2.0\PSoC Creator\import\keil\pk51\9.03\UV4\Uv4.exe.

2. Click on File->Licence Management. Add your LIC code here and Click on "Add LIC". The licence gets added.

By renaming "_TOOLS.INI"

1. Rename "_Tools.ini" to "Tools.ini" in the path "C:\Program Files\Cypress\PSoC Creator\2.0\PSoC Creator\import\keil\pk51\9.03"

2. Now add your LIC code in PSoC Creator, Help->Register->Keil and click on "Add LIC". The licence gets added.

Hi Neha,

Try the above steps suggested by Sashi and I'm sure that will work. As an add-on, you can add edit the _TOOLS.INI file and add the following line with your license code.

 

LIC0=<Paste your License code here>

 The reason for getting the "device not supported" pop-up is that  several PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 part numbers  are now obsolete and have been removed from the device catalog.  If you are using one of them, I would recommend you to upgrade to the latest with no cost.

 

Thanks,

srim

Hi Neha,

I hope you want to use the free version of Keil. It is installed in "C:\Program Files\Cypress\PSoC Creator\2.0\PSoC Creator\import\keil\pk51" folder. Use the following procedure if you get issue while registering through Creator i.e. Help -> Register -> Keil.

1. Edit "C:\Program Files\Cypress\PSoC Creator\2.0\PSoC Creator\import\keil\pk51\9.03\TOOLS.INI"

2. Add the LIC obtained through mail after registering on Keil website to this file on the last line. 

"LIC0=<License ID Code>"

3. Edit "C:\Program Files\Cypress\PSoC Creator\2.0\PSoC Creator\import\keil\pk51\9.03\_TOOLS.INI" and follow the step 2.

 

If above procedure does not work, then please re-install the Creator and try it. Even after reinstallation, the above procedure does not work then file a case.

Hi Aniruddha!

I already did what has been suggested. I filed a case regarding this. The only way to make it work out was to download PSoC creator 2.0  component pack from cypress and uv4 from keil.I registered the license i obtained on e-mail and it was installed on that IDE .now things are fine...but stipulated CD with the kit is still not working!
