I have been using PsocOC 4 creator on my Windows 7 machine for the past 6 months and everything has been fine. I installed PsOC Creator 4 and now I can't step into debugger. I'm using CY8CKIT-042. It programs fine and there nothing wrong with the SWD pin setup. I get the message 

Error: dbg.M0006: The start request failed.  Encountered error (SetTarget timeout)

but no one seems to know what the message means or how to find out what wrong.

Can anyone help?

Hi Rod,

Could you please check whether the Debug Select is SWD or not?

In .cydwr, System -> Debug Select -> SWD (If it is GPIO, then debug fails.For debug, it should be SWD).

Thanks,
Anjana

Hi Anjana.

Thanks for replying. I've checked the SWD setting and it is correct. 

Basically it all work fine until a Windows update. I have un-installed everything to do with Cypress and re-installed two or three times now but it still does not startup the debugger. The applications programs ok and the USB comms is good but the debugger won't run. I think a Windows file has been corrupted and is not updating on re-installation or the error message is correct but no-one seems to know what it means "Error: dbgM0006: The start request failed. Encountered error (SetTarget timeout). If you expand the message box it says "Make sure that all the files with debugging information are available". That's not really helpful as it doesn't say where to look.

Hello Rod,

This seems like an issue with PSoC Creator 4.0. Our software team has already fixed this, and the fix will be available with PSoC Creator 4.1.

Thanks,

Hima

Hello Hima

Thanks for letting us know. Is there a time scale for the next release?

Regards

Rod
