PSoC™ Creator & Designer

Upon entering debug mode in PSoC Creator, it crashes, giving the general and not-very-helpful error message "psoc_creator.exe" has stopped working.

   

The project I am trying to debug compiles/builds fine. I have restarted the computer and get the same error.

   

Using Visual Studio to investigate further, the actual exception thrown is "ArgumentException" and the info is "Illegal characters in path". I could probably get more information (like the path string which caused the exception) from Visual Studio but I don't know what to look for.

   

My project is in a folder with spaces in the path name, but that hasn't been an issue before. Does anyone have any ideas?

In one of the older versions of Creator I had a similar problem. Spaces within the path or file-name could cause an errormessage like that and - as in my case- language-specific characters did the job. Accepted by windows, but not within creator, but seemes to be fixed with 2.2

 I am using PSoC Creator v2.2. Weird, I have used spaces in the path in the past and they have worked fine?
