Re: Chipscope

Do you have chipscope installed on the machine?  Even though the cores are available you need to install Chipscope onto the machine.
If you do have chipscope installed, try adding the chipscope to your path in the environment variables.

Re: Chipscope

I ran into this problem. ChipScope was installed on the machine and in fact worked fine with a non-EDK project. It wasn't necessary to add the ChipScope binaries directory to the path though I did that anyway. That part of the error message is a red herring (typical Xilinx).

The real hint is here: Please verify that the MHS Parameters for "chipscope_opb_iba_1" core are valid and the generated Chipscope Core Generator arg file : "implementation/cs_coregen_chipscope_opb_iba_1.arg" is valid

Check to make sure that the connection between ChipScope and the OPB are correct.

Re: Chipscope

I had this same problem and it seemed to get fixed when I downloaded the latest service pack for Chipscope.

Re: Chipscope

If you have chipscope installed then you can try adding these environment variables:

CHIPSCOPE = C:\Xilinx\Chipscope  -- Folder where Chipscope has been installed  
PATH = %CHIPSCOPE%\bin\nt;%PATH%

Hope this helps...
