ISE on Windows 10, (using VirtualBox) iMPACT fails

I installed Xilinx_ISE_S6_Win10_14.7_ISE_VMs_0206_1 on Windows 10 because other ISE version dont work on it.

 

 This ISE is limited to Spartn 6. I have an Atlys board which has Spartan 6.

I  set the FPGA directly in the Project settings in the ISE

 

I connect the Atlys to a USB on the PC,

 

I managed to do Presynthesis, generated UCF file, did Synthesis, but when I run iMPACT to program the FPGA on the Atlys

 

I get the following error:

Re: ISE on Windows 10, (using VirtualBox) iMPACT fails

first can you confirm if the cable and the board works fine in another setup with windows7 machine or any other known working setup?
