2019-01-06: PSoC Creator - I verified that I can open examples and create new projects. Good.
2019-01-06: I ran the installer for PSoC Creator 4.2 and selected C:\diverse\utils\Cypress as installation directory. I had to download and install vcredist_x86_2013.exe version 12.0.30501, back to PSoC I selected "typical", and the installation started - it took a while. After the installation, I can start PSoC Creator - it appears to work. So I copied the c:\diverse\utils\Cypress folder to a usb stick (about 1.1 GB).

2018-07-22: I installed XSTOOLs 5.1.4, connected up the XuLa-200, the drivers installed ok. gxstest did the same as on Linux / FreeBSD (I assume, it just crashed after a while with "..stopped working"), so I looked into the XuLA/Firmware folder, there I found
PS C:\diverse\utils\XSTOOLs\XuLA\Firmware> ls Directory: C:\diverse\utils\XSTOOLs\XuLA\Firmware Mode LastWriteTime Length Name ---- ------------- ------ ---- -a--- 04.08.2012 15:55 634880 xsusbprg.exe -a--- 15.08.2011 04:54 34 XuLAFmwUpdate.cmd -a--- 25.04.2012 20:02 35485 XuLA_jtag.hex
and when I ran
.\XuLAFmwUpdate.cmd it update the firmware on the XuLA-200 board. Afterwards, gxstest reports "Your XuLA-200 passed the test!". Nice.
PS C:\diverse\utils\XSTOOLs> xstest -b xula-200 -usb 0 Your XULA-200 passed the test! Press any key to continue...
good to know.

2015-04-05: booted into win7 to check a few things: i have EasyBCD 2.0.2 installed. As usual, I got an Avast! update as well (including reboot). Upgraded EasyBCD to version 2.2. I also created a new entry for Xubuntu in EasyBCD, and it works.
2015-03-15: booted into Win7 to upgrade firmware on the TellStick Duo. As usual Avast! updates was needed.
2014-05-21: I needed to run a Windows program (MetaWatch firmware update), so I booted into win7, got a lot of updates, and the Avast license has expired. So I registered Avast again (using the mail account on the Jolla phone), and updated the program and the antivirus definitions. Reboot required.
2011-05-20: while I was restarting the machine, I stepped into Win7 and updated the machine with win update + Avast updates. Nothing more.
2010-09-26: I used EasyBCD to add an entry in the Win7 bootloader for FreeBSD. The win7 bootloader (or EasyBCD?) can directly boot the FreeBSD partition. No need to copy /boot/boot1 anymore. Yay!
