SDK 2014.1: Error while running ps7_init method

When I start the debugger in SDK, I get the above error message (see attachment). All SDK info do not show any problem.

Please can anyone tell me where to start searching for the problem?

Program FPGA works fine and restarting SDK does not help.

 

It is the same with the same 'Export' on another windows 7 computer.

 

Thank you, Bahne

Re: SDK 2014.1: Error while running ps7_init method

Hi,

 

Would that be possible to try using System Debugger?

Can you attach the SDK trace log?

 

Window  > Preferences > Xilinx SDK > Log information Level > Log Level >  Trace

 

    <Workspace  dir>/SDK.log

    <Workspace  dir>/.metadata/.log

Hi sampatd,

In the mean time we try to solve the problem on 4 computer.

On the computer Axalis and Porrima the SDK shows the same behavior as described.

On the Danielpc computer, it is possible to debug the application, but the program hangs.

I will attach the logs from all three computer with an old (Berlin) and a new design.

 

Thank you, Bahne

Re: SDK 2014.1: Error while running ps7_init method

Hi Hem,

I bought my ZedBoards early, so I have no license for ChipScope or System Debugger.

On a third computer, the SDK 2014.1 will start debugging but than hangs at differnt program lines

for different Designs (2013.4 and 2014.1).

So if we get into the debugging environment, what shall we check?

I have posted the logfiles from all three computer (sampatd)

 

Thank you, Bahne

install old cable driver from 2013.4

On the third windows 7 computer (Danielpc) we installed the old cable driver (2007). This helped to get the old reference design (Berlin) running.

The new design still hangs as before.

Re: SDK 2014.1: Error while running ps7_init method

The initial Error message is no longer there. It might be because I used the ZedBoard clone without Linux SD-Card inserted. Inserting the SD-Card again will not reproduce the error.

An attempt to install SDK on a Linux computer (Centos 5) offered frustrating results. The udef rules are old and one has to be very lucky to install the USB cable driver.

Finally the "Program FPGA" with a proofed design does not run correctly - a connected motor starts running.

I would appreciate all hints, how to setup the SDK correctly.

 

Thanks, Bahne
