open source software is subject to the applicable license agreement and not the Cypress license
agreement covering this software package. The applicable license terms will accompany each source
code package. You may obtain the source code of such free and/or open source software at no charge

Internet Explorer 9 Installation
After installing PSoC Designer, if users update or install Internet Explorer 9 an issue may arise with the
SVG Viewer that will require a reinstall of the SVG Viewer. PSoC Designer has implemented a runtime
check that will warn users if this error is found. To eliminate this error please perform the following
actions.
1) Navigate to the following web page and download the latest SVG viewer:
http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/
2) Run this installer and follow the installation instructions. Once the SVG viewer has been reinstalled you will not receive the runtime message and PSoC Designer will function properly.
Users with Internet Explorer 9 installed prior to the PSoC Designer installation will not need to reinstall
SVG viewer. The CyInstaller will update the SVG viewer during installation.

Windows Installer
PSoC Programmer
* CD/DVD drive is only required for installation with no web access.
** Software Prerequisites – In order to install and run the PSoC Designer, you may also need to install
additional software. The Cypress Installer guides you through the process if the additional programs are
not already installed.
Update Instructions
As part of the installation process, the Cypress Update Manager utility is also installed and located on the
Start menu. You can use this utility to update all programs you have installed when updates for them
become available.
Follow the instructions provided with the tool, as needed.
Installation Notes
Cypress uses a Live Update feature to simplify the installation process and to decrease download size.
This process consists of a set of wizards that walk you through the installation. You can install PSoC
Designer and its various prerequisites from the web, but if you have issues with installing behind a firewall
or on a machine with no internet connection, an ISO file is provided on the web for creation of your own
CD. There are slight differences in the process, based on the medium used to install the software.
In order to install PSoC Designer, you need to first install PSoC Programmer. The CDs provide the
necessary prerequisites and the wizards to guide you through installing the appropriate software. The
Web installation requires you to download and install the executables separately. The following sections
contain more specific installation details.
Note Do NOT connect your Cypress Programmers (Miniprog1, Miniprog3, etc) until all software
installation is complete AND the PSoC Designer application is open.
How to Install PSoC Designer from the Web:
1. Download PSoCDesignerSetup.exe from the Cypress website
a. It can be found at www.cypress.com/go/psocdesigner
2. PSoCDesignerSetup.exe will install CyInstaller for PSoC Designer.
3. CyInstaller will do a pre-requisite test, leading the user through the install process for missing
prerequisites such as PSoC Programmer.
4. When the pre-requisite tests are passed, CyInstaller provides the user with the option to do a
“Typical”, “Complete” or “Custom” install.
a. Typical or Complete Install: Will install the latest available PSoC Designer release.
b. Custom Install: Will show the user all releases of PSoC Designer and install the selected
release (for now there is just one).
5. Once the PSoC Designer release is downloaded, CyInstaller displays the EULA and other applicable
licenses.
6. Once the install is complete, CyInstaller displays the finish screen with options to view the “Release
Notes” and “Add Desktop Shortcut”.

PSoC Designer Release Notes
Version 5.4
How to Install Using an ISO Image (Two Methods):
1. Create a CDROM using the ISO image:
a. Drag the ISO image onto the CD/DVD drive containing the CD/DVD. Right click on the
CD/DVD drive and select “Burn” to create a CD/DVD for PSoC Designer installations.
b. Download MagicISO (http://www.magiciso.com/download.htm) and follow the tutorial to
create a CD/DVD from ISO http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso-burnwin.htm.
Note – To burn a CD with MagicISO, you need to pay $30 for the full version.
There are also Freeware versions and tools that allow you to mount the ISO file
without burning a CD. This is described in step 2.
c. The installer, cyautorun.exe, launches once the CD/DVD is inserted in the CD/DVD
drive. If not, double click cyautorun.
2. Install directly from an ISO image:
a. Download MagicISO (http://www.magiciso.com/download.htm) or other Virtual Drive creators
(these are typically freeware) and create a virtual drive. Mount the ISO image on the drive
from the “Mount” option in MagicISO.
- For help on mounting and unmounting ISO images see
http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/tutorials.htm.
b. When you have mounted the ISO file, the installer should start.
- if it does not start, double click on cyautorun.
c. An alternative to using Virtual Drive creators is to download winrar
(http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm) and open the ISO file in it. Then, extract and run
“cyautorun.exe”.
3. cyautorun.exe prompts you to install PSoC Designer. Then follow steps 3-6 from the Web Installation
instructions.
System Level Design Users:
Customers who wish to continue developing system level projects will need to install PSoC Designer 5.0
SP6. System level development has been removed from PSoC Designer. PSoC Designer 5.0 SP6 will be
provided on the PSoC Designer web page or PSoC Designer archives page for any users interested in
maintaining System Level projects, though creating new projects is no longer recommended. PSoC
Designer 5.0 SP6 and PSoC Designer 5.4 will coexist on the same machine allowing customers to
continue developing System Level designs and continue designing new chip level designs with PSoC
Designer.
Note to HI-TECH Compiler Users
The HI-TECH compiler is no longer supported by PSoC Designer. At your own risk, you may perform the
following instructions if you wish to enable your existing HITECH PRO license.
You must manually update the psoc.ini file to add device support before you can compile projects that
use the new devices. The HI-TECH psoc.ini file is found in the HI-Tech installation folder. The default
location of the psoc.ini is here:
C:\Program Files\HI-TECH Software\HCPSOC\PRO\9.61\dat\psoc.ini
The default location of the replacement psoc.ini file that adds support for the new devices is here:
C:\Program Files\Cypress\PSoC Designer\5.4\Common\CypressSemiDeviceEditor\Devices\psoc.ini
Known Problems and Limitations for PSoC Designer 5.4
The Known Problems and Solutions (KPS) are included in a separate file. Please download it from the
PSoC Designer download page found here: www.cypress.com/go/psocdesigner
