I have got the same problem as Andisa-8's. Moreover, i got a message said
‘impact’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
hope someone knows what happened here. (Andisa-8: did you get this as well?)
Any info would be appreciated.

It's good to hear that you've got it working.
Could you tell me what did you do before double clicking the burn_intel_s33.bat file as mine is still not working. As you seen below, those are what I did before programming the flash.
- power off
- put jumper on JP7
- make sure only the jumper for M1 is on JP9
- leave JP8 empty
- power on
Did you ever use iMPACT through the progress? In XAPP1053, it says that
'A batch file is provided to simplify the burning of the Intel S33 serial flash using the XIP and iMPACT programs. iMPACT is used in batch mode to convert the bitstream to an MCS file compatible with SPI configuration. XIP is then used to burn this MCS to the Intel S33 flash.'
Please let me know you comment.

I posted in the wrong thread earlier.
I have not managed to get the direct programming of the Intel S33 SPI flash memory to work. I only got the direct JTAG programming working.
About your error message Derek. I’m far from being an expert when it comes to operating systems on desktop computers but to me it sounds like impact isn’t found by your batch file. I.e. the path to impact isn’t registered in the environmental variables. My best guess is that the batch file uses impact to create the mcs file.

Thanks for your information and it is helpful.
I tried to change the environmental variables and it did not work. Probably I did it in the wrong way or something else, but I will try again as you said.

I have found the reason. I should have added the impact path into system variabls instead of user variables. (don't know why i put it in there.) Now it is working.
Thanks for your advice. Appreciate.

I got the same problem of 'impact' please tell me the environment variable to be set.
Thanks in advance.

In the software install there is "ISE Design Suite Command Prompt" under "Accessories" when you go to START - Programs - ISE 12.4..."
From this command line you can type "imapct" and batch mode will be started from any folder you are in. This command prompt sets all of the enviroment varriables. This allow allows multiple versions of the software to be installed and then either version can be called by opening up that command line box.
