Since Windows 10 was updated to the fall creators update, the Platform USB cable stopped working. In device manager it is listed as "Xilinx Platform Cable USB Firmware Loader", so it seems to me that the USB device is recognized correctly, but the driver does not load the firmware to the cable's chip.
I can reproduce the problem on multiple computers, while the cable works correctly on Windows 7. Development boards with Digilent cable works.
Is there any solution?

This is not an ISE related problem, I use Vivado. But anyhow, it is not related to the design SW, it seems to be a driver issue, if I plug in the cable, the LED is not turned on.
As I wrote, the platform cable did work before Fall creators update, but it fails to do so since then. Digilent driver works ok.

Please try updating the Jungo Drivers of your system:
Also follow below steps:
1) Delete windrvr6.sys from C:\Windows\drivers
2) Run install_drivers.exe from <Path to ISE folder>\bin\nt64
3) Reboot computer
Please disable the antivirus and firewall once and check if it works after that.
Also what is the status of the LED on platform cable ?
Please try reinstalling the drivers as well.
Let us know if all this above checks help setup the cable with windows 10.

As I wrote I do not use ISE, I use Vivado. And I did not find any end-user driver at Jungo.
Anyway I tried to remove all Xilinx related drivers, so the cable was identified as an Unknown device. Then I installed the driver through device manager, but I afterwards I still see it as the following:
The driver details:
And the status LED is not turned on.
During normal operation the cable is identified as a "Xilinx USB Cable" in device manager, this is why I think that there may be a problem loading the cable's firmware into the cable itself.

Did you solved the driver problem eventually ?
I'm having the same issue on new Windows 10 version, stuck at Xilinx Platform Cable USB Firmware Loader.
Normally the "Xilinx Platform Cable USB Firmware Loader"(VID_03FD&PID_000F) load the Cypress CY7C68013 chip on the cable with a xilinx firmware and renumerate as "Xilinx USB Cable"(VID_03FD&PID_0008), which is not the case on Windows 10.
Installed Vivado 2018.3 Lab, googled a lot, still no clue why it doesn't load or renumerate on WIN10.
