spartan 6 (xc6slx9 model) cable installation

Hi guys,

I have a spartan 6 (xc6slx9 model) and my problem is in cable installation stage.

When I run "install_xusb" (not as an admin!) then it works, but warns me that "the device is not plugged-in", then the installation continued... But my windows 7 still can't find or recognize the device , please guide me that when did I make mistakes?!

...

I'm new user and couldn't post in a new thread or create a new thread, then I explained my issue in this subject. I search the topics before and the result is not satisfactory then I decide to create a new post ... 

Excuse me before any thing

Hi there kkn, and thanks for your response.

It didn't work and in step 2 the command prompt said:

"'wdreg' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

Also doing step 3 says this response too.

...

I should say that I installed xilinx 13.2 (ISE tool) before and instal xilinx 14.7 Impact now and I think the problem may be in conflicting these versions because it didn't recognize "wdreg" installation ... Any way it's just an assumption ...

Any help will be acknowledged!

Thanks

Re: spartan 6 (xc6slx9 model) cable installation

Yeah, I ran the cmd as an admin now, but at first for installing "install_xusb" automatically, the command didn't proceed with admin access (I do not know the reason!), but after running normally I saw firstly that windows stopped working(!!) and I canceled that prompt but then ask me "do you want to install xilinx device?!" I clicked yes! then it wrote that installation completed! (or successfully!). But as I said at the first question the command warned me that the device is not plugged in!!

...

Now, when I try to do your opinion, I open the cmd as an ADMIN and in step 2 have some problems as I mentioned before in my last response.

Re: spartan 6 (xc6slx9 model) cable installation

Yeah, dear kkn, we returned to the first step I think!!
When I told you that I trapped at "install_xusb" installation step, it means I read whole of this guidance.
...
Ok, now you can see step 5 in page 17 of your pdf file format, my problem is in "install_xusb" step, what can I do?
Should I remove my xilinx ISE software and setup it again or remove whole my windows 7 ?! Please solve it because I need implement my project on my board as much faster as I can ...

Re: spartan 6 (xc6slx9 model) cable installation

can you provide the Xilinx System Information (xinfo).  you can run the xinfo command in the command line

if possible then re-install the windows7 OS and then go with the ISE/impact installation

Dear kkn! Thanks for all your help!
But still I can't understand what xinfo commands do ...?!
Can you explain them in one sentence?
