PSoC™ Creator & Designer

I used Psoc creator 4.3 for a log time with out getting such a issue. Since some days the creator freezes when trying to start debug. I updated to version 4.4 but the issue still exists. Psoc creator freezes for about 120 sec and  then continue, windows give a sound. Today each debug start suffer from this delay.

WIN 10, MINIProg4, only 20GB free SSD space left.

What can I do to get rid of this pause?

RuGl,

I'm not aware of a debugger log file.

You said you were using a MiniProg4.  The next step is to determine if the slowness issue is linked to the MiniProg4 or in general with the Creator 4.3 or higher.

I'm using Creator 4.3 and have no debugging slowness issue except for those I know will slow the debugger response like large memory monitor windows.

Experiment #1 - Try a different programmer debugger

Do you have one of the Cypress kits/eval boards?  If so, it has a KitProgx programmer debugger.  If the debugging slowness is still present, we'd have to look at possibly reinstalling Creator or installing an earlier version of Creator.  If debugging is much faster, it is a problem with the MiniProg4 HW or it's configuration in Creator.

Experiment #2 - Use a known working example program

The example programs for Infineon use minimal debugger settings.  This will help to determine if something went 'wonky' with the project's settings.

RuGl,

When you are debugging, are you displaying a Memory window or a watch array variable with many elements?

Displaying either of these listed above, the SWD interface is trying to update this information but it takes time.   I receive similar delays.

RuGl,

Occasionally when I change the project code and rebuild and launch to the Debugger, acquiring the PSoC fails.  A "Debugging without Programming" usually allows me to reacquire the Debugger SWD in the PSoC successfully.

Since you said "I used Psoc creator 4.3 for a log time with out getting such a issue." I'm assuming something changed on your system.

Can you launch into previously working program without issue?  If you don't have a previous project handy, you can load an example project and try debugging it.

The goal is to determine if the issue is in the project configuration or if it is a problem with the Creator module not installed properly.

No chance... no previous working program... the problem just come with V4.3 and after update to V4.4 is does not vanish. Even when I press reset in the debugger view this 120s pause will take place... It is really bad.. I can hardly work on my code.
