        I have been working just fine with the CY8CKIT-050 5LP and this morning, all of a sudden, I get: "This device was recognized but PSoC Creator does not support using it at this time" The device is listed as "Cortex-M3" wtih an exclamation mark next to it. Tried connecting and disconnecting USB... Rebooting the PC.... Same message. What's wrong? Any ideas? Thanks...

        And the "info" box when placed on top of the "Cortex-M3" target says "this device is already in used by another client"... and yet, this happens when rebooting the PC and starting PSoC creator.

The message means that another application has opened the debug interface. It often happens when the device has been put into debug/program mode and wasn't properly reset (because the application crashed or was killed or something) just reset the board and restart PSOC Programmer / Creator.

Normalmente esto pasa cuando intentas programar tu PSoC por primera vez, solo tienes que asegurarte de tener actualizado PSoC Programer.(Puedes hacer que se actualice automaticamente dando clic en opciones, dentro de PSoC programer)

In case I find this again in the future: wiggling the programming cable fixed it

I have seen this problem.  Usually after an electrical problem (High Voltage on PSOC inputs) broke the PSOC 5.  The MCU was barely functional, and was seen.

Other things that caused this problem are programmer issues.  (see JoBr post).

Finally, rebooting Windows and the PSOC would sometimes fix this.  Windows .NET breaks upon occasion and will no longer operate correctly.  A reboot of the OS (and usually also the PSOC) will fix this.  The universal fix for Windows (From 95 on to Windows 10) is to reboot the OS when strange things occur.
