We recently purchased ML605 kit. We are having 64-bit HP workstation. The PCItree software doesn't work on 64-bit machines:
Can someone suggest some software which works for 64-bit machines. Is there any other way of sending and receiving data from the ML605 through PCIe.
thanks in advance,

I`m facing the same problem on a Windows 7 64bit machine.
I tried "HWDirect" from Eprotek (www.eprotek.com) but it`s shows nearly the same text "Error! Load driver failed!"
Did you got a solution in the meantime?

I have now switched to a Windows 32-bit machine. PCI Tree is running fine here, and I am able to see ML605 here.
I had raised a case, and it seems that there is not free software for scanning PCIe devices on 64-bit machines.

in the meantime I tried to different software packages on Win7 64bit.
HWDirect (www.eprotek.com/) and PCIScope (www.tssc.de).
PCIScope has a 15day trial.
HWDirect needs you to press F8 at system boot and then deactivate driver enforcement. After windows start you have to run HWDirect as administrator!
You can scan your PCI devices and write manually values into the memory of XILINX chip ("ML605 PCIe x8 Gen1 Design Creation").
Hope that helps.

Ran into the same issue when working on XTP197 (KC705 PCIe Design)
RWEverything works well on win7-64 and is free.
It allows, among other things, to access PCI config and read/write PCI registers.
con: does not display a nice PCI Tree.
pro: batch file and command line mode. It should be possible to control PCI registers from any programming language via command lines.
