Looks like data2mem cannot find the elf file. Can you verify that the path is correct in the program FPGA?
is the elf file on a network drive. Can you make it local and try again?

thanks for your help.
but same programe in sdk 13.3 is correct.
i tried in win7 with sp1 x64 and x86 , the error is still,
i config Hardware in xps 13.3 and expoet to sdk 13.3 , build and programe fpga correct.
and then , open workspace in sdk 13.4, error.
and then i config hardware in xps 13.4 and export to sdk 13.4 , in build porgress , show error,
i checked the file system.bit , is not locked
Use sdk 13.4 open sdk 13.3 workpace
this is the error.
but in sdk 13.3
download bitstream is completed.

I had the same problem with SDK 13.4 in that I got it to always fail the Data2MEM for loading the FPGA. I am using windows 7 OS.
It does it on any .bit file I try. I tried a lot of things including reloading ISE 13.4 but it still errors out. I can use SDK 13.3 to download to FPGA or IMPACT on any of these .bit files and they work with no error.
This has been submitted to Xilinx CASE:906545> SDK13.4 DATA2MEM file locked error last week
They ask several questions so far, yet have not responded with any fix.
Just to note: I am also finding other issues with 13.4, such as new Microblaze core in EDK causes a Plan Ahead fitting error if run on a post route design from ISE. Or my special EDK IO core to AXI bus does not appear to function the same for reads cycles when looking at it with chipscope tool.
I don’t have the time to send Xilinx a case or write the forum on all the issues I find, but in terms of problems 13.4 seems to have many. I guess they did not do a very good formal verification to see that the tools all work together and do not generate errors.

I have same problem.
And I found workaround.
- Launch SDK via Project Navigator by the process "Export Hardware Design To SDK with/without Bitstream".
- Project Navigator launches SDK with command line option "-hwspec (exported hardware spec xml file) ".
- I can program FPGA successfully.

I had the same problem. I don't know how to solve it correctly, but replacing of \Xilinx\13.4\ISE_DS\ISE\bin\nt64\ [or \nt\ for 32bit version] data2mem.exe file by its old version (from 13.3) seems to work fine. :)
