- The driver signature can be got around by downloading the USB driver development tools from WinDriver(after installation C:\WinDriver\redist\windrvr6.*) and installing using the 64bit wdreg.exe from Xilinx ug344_windows.zip\install_xusb\nt64\wdreg.e
- Make sure you have installed 64bit firmware uploader driver from Xilinx(ug344_windows.zip\install_xusb\install_xusb
This will resolve the driver problem for the programming cable. I got this in Win7_ultimate_64bit.
But if you are using the WebPack installation, you(like me) are still out of luck; because Webpack installation has 32bit iMPACT, which cannot connect to device using 64bit drivers.
This above fix will be helpful for people who are installing ISE Foundation 64bit edition may be. But with ISE Foundation i guess the drivers should come handy onboard itself though.

I know this thread is old but...
This thread helped me install Xilinx Webpack 10.1 SP3 on my new Win7 Pro 64-bit laptop today, so I just wanted to say thanks to you guys for finding a work around!
Have there been any developments with getting the hardware to work with 64-bit Windows and the Webpack version of Xilinx? I'd hate to have my laptop sitting around because I can't use it to program the Xilinx board.
Sorry to revive an old thread, I just thought it was worth trying to see if there were any new developments. Thanks again!

After installing WebPACK 10.1 per the above sequence, and letting it autoupdate to 10.1.03, then I...
1) Downloaded and unpacked the TAR file for 13.3 Lab Tools.
2) Ran its main installer (xsetup.exe in the base dir), without any special treatment (no compatibility settings or Run as Admin, etc.). I mostly followed the installer's default selections, with the following exceptions:
2a) At the 3-checkbox selection, I unchecked the first two and only kept "Install Cable Drivers".
2b) Shortly thereafter, I unchecked "Import tool preferences from previous version and change project file association to ISE Design Suite 13.3".
[Just for clarity: At the end, I accepted/agreed to install all three drivers; Jungo, Xilinx, and Digilent.]
I haven't had time to really try it out yet, but on a quick test, ISE WebPACK 10.1.03 seems to work fine, and iMPACT 13.3 looks like it can talk to a Platform Cable USB II; together, that's a workable end-to-end solution for anything but direct SPI programming (since they dropped that capability at version 12.1 or so).
