SDK 2017.4 during debugging greys out and target board freezes


I am trying to debug a linux application on a proprietry board using the tcf agent.

When I hot debug it seems to download and connect but when it goes into run mode the SDK freezes and goes grey and the target board also freezes.

There is no error in the log and nothing comes out into the console.

If anybody knows what is happening with the SDK when it goes grey would appreciate it.

Thanks very much

Re: SDK 2017.4 during debugging greys out and target board freezes

Just to give a bit more information...

The board has a 7 series FPGA running a microblaze processor with a petalinux linux build.

The SDK / Petalinux used is 2017.4.

If anybody could tell me what it means when the SDK goes dark grey this would help.

It looks like the board just stops communicating - but I don't know why. I have to shutdown the SDK and restart the board to get everything running again.

Any information on this would help - or if someone could point me to documentation.
