     I have the CY8CKIT-042-BLE kit and have used the CY5670 dongle with CySmart 1.2 and it has been very useful.  Now suddenly CySmart won't see the dongle.  It brings up a dialog that says I have to update the firmware to C:\Program Files(x86)\Cypress\Cysmart1.2\dongle\CY5670\BLE_4_1_Dongle_CySmart_128K.hex.

 But when I open PSoc Programmer 3.24.2 It says the dongle is running that file. (see  PNG attached)

Successfully Connected to KitProg/BLE0F20122F03314400 at 4:32:11 AM | KitProg Version 2.16

                                                                    | Users must be aware that the following PSoC device should not be powered or programmed at 5V. Doing so will cause damage to the device: CYRF89xxx
Session Started at 4:32:08 AM                                       | PPCOM Version 20.0

So it has the correct file but still won't use  it.  All my Cypress programs have been updated to current, Any suggestions what I can do ?

Thank you,

Probably you mix two different resources needed:

The Kitprog which seemingly is up-to-date

and the firmware. You can see which hex-file to be programmed is selected, but you cannot see that the file has been programmed.

Longer note got stuck in the spam filter.  But ran the PSoC programmer and it said it successfully loaded the named file.  Ran CySmart 1.2 and it said I needed to program the donger with said file.  Is there something I'm missing.

Thank you
