I am just trying Creator 3.1 for the first time  (3.1 (3.1.0.1570))  ( and a later version as well) and I cannot build any project that uses any part of the gcc toolchain on a computer running windows vista.

   

The error messages are

   

'arm-none-eabi-gcc.exe: error: CreateProcess: No such file or directory'

   

'arm-none-eabi-gcc.exe' failed with exit code '1'

   

 

   

The same two versions of creator installed on  a windows7 virtual machine  running on linux work perfectly ok with no changes to the default installation and they also work fine on a native win7 install on another machine.

   

 

   

Is there a problem running the software on a windows vista machine?

I had a sililiar problem and searched HDD for gcc.exe and

   

placed its path into the build settings, compiler, additional

   

paths entry.

I added every directory underneath 'gnu_cs\arm\4.8.4' and it did not make any difference.

   

I can call arm-none-eabi-gcc.exe from the command line without problems, it just won't work from within creator.

   

<winge mode>  I am not a windows user and nothing I ever see of it convinces me that is a bad choice

   

This stuff would be so much better if it wasn't tied to windows</winge mode> 🙂

Creator runs under win vista without any troubles on one of my machines.

   

If you haven't tried yet: de-install Creator and re-install it with admin rights.

   

If all fails, create a "MyCase" to get help from a Cypress engineer: At top of this page under Support & Community -> Technical Support -> Create a MyCase.

Thanks, I managed to temporarily scrounge another laptop running XP from a colleague and Creator is working fine. That is all I need for the moment.

For anybody that may have a similar problem and read this in the future.

   

I  changed the path env variable in Windows to include the path to cc1.exe included with PSoC Creator and now the software is working 100%.

Thank you very much for sharing your experiences with us. I was thinking about if it might be the case that the installation was not run completely with admin rights.
