Spartan 3A Evaluation Kit - USB Cable Driver Problems

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

 

I am trying to get the USB-Cable running, but up to now I failed. I am using vista x64 business edition. I have installed the ISE 9.1i Foundation. When I plug in the Board via USB cable Windows can't find an appropriate USB-driver.

 

In the device manager is the device "Avnet_Sp3A_Demo" but with the yellow exclamation mark, indicating, that something is not properly installed. In a XP-virtual machineI got it running, but always starting a virtual machine to program the FPGA is a bit annoying, as you can imagine.

 

Do you have any suggestions, where to get the correct driver for the board? 

 

Thank you very much for your answers!

Hi,

 

I solved the problem by installing  AVProg which is containing the required drivers.

Hello,

 

Unfortunattely "AvProg_v405_setup" does not support drivers, first thing I did was to read the documention but no luck. If you have any other solution please let me now.
