Windows 7 is not officially supported by XILINX till now. Probably ISE13.X supports Windows-7 fully.
But ISE12.3 may work with limited support. You may try.

The following AR http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/35072.htm talks about ISE12.X known issues with respect to Windows-7 O/S
FYI: Till now Xilinx officially does not support Windows-7. By fixing all the issues ISE13.X tools officially supports Windows-7

I also have the coolrunner-ii starter kit, windows 7 for x64, ISE13.1, and I downaloaded the run-time systems from Digilent v2.7 and application 2.4.2. The drivers are loaded and the device enumerates. Cr2s2 is found in the Digilent Adept application, but it could not find specific board information. The CoolRunner-II utility Windows 1.0 cannot connect to the device.

I'm having the exact same problem as davehu. I'm also running win7 64 bit. I have downloaded the latest runtime 2.8.1 and application 2.6.4. ISE13.2.
Has anyone got this starter kit working??.

I am afraid that the only environment where I have had success is native XP, and even there using the old CR-II Utility package only. I did not try programming yet, but the Coolrunner utility finds the sensors and Export utility identified the CPLD, so I am optimistic. Only native XP works, XP in Virtualbox did not (card is recognised and can be enumerated but no further communication works).
The new Adept software from Digilent did not work even in XP. I get the same behaviour in XP, W7-64, and Linux as well as XP in Vbox on Linux: enumeration works and limited info can read, e.g. using dadutil but that's all.
'dadutil showinfo' terminates with error code 3075. The Adept SDK has definitions of error codes in dpcdecl.h, and 3075 means "Control transfer failed", whatever that means. Any ideas how to fix it?

Here are the answer from Digilent:
The software has not been updated to run on 64-bit machines. Adept won't be able to connect to the board due to the firmware on the USB controller. The firmware was designed inbetween a change in Adept and is not easy to update so the firmware only works with the utility window. You will need to use it on a 32-bit windows system with the Coolrunner-II utility window. I would also suggest NOT installing Adept onto that machine.
In other words - find another J-TAG programmer. The onboard Atmel one would not work on a up to date ISE software and updated Adept drivers. You will only be able to upload CPLD code through the Coolrunner-II utility window on an outdated 32 bit OS :smileymad:
