iMPACT crashes after creating ROM file

iMPACT keeps crashing, preventing me from saving a config file,

which means lots of mouse clicks every time I use it.

Process to make it crash, using ISP Project Navigator 14.5, part is xc7a100t-3fgg676

Double-click Configure Target Device

OK (no project file)

Double-click Create PROM file

Click SPI Flash/Configure Single FPGA

Click arrow

128M

Add Storage Device

Click arrow

Output File Name: top_rom

OK

Yes (file already exists)

OK

top.bit

Open

No (Not another file)

OK

Double-click Generate File

At this point, iMPACT crashes (after creating the file)

Re: iMPACT crashes after creating ROM file

The same is happening to me... trying to download an image to a m25p16 spi flash using 14.5 impact.

Re: iMPACT crashes after creating ROM file

I have never tried iMPACT before, but I wonder whether there are some image processors which can help with it? I am not very sure about it. But I hope you success. Good luck.

Re: iMPACT crashes after creating ROM file

There is a known issue while launching IMPACT from ISE tool by assign IMPACT project file.

Please use standalone IMPACT as a workaround

Re: iMPACT crashes after creating ROM file

If you mention more details (the tool version , O/S etc) then it is easy to narrow down the issue

 

The following AR http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/36813.htm address the ise issue in ISE13.2 tools
