I have downloaded and installed the UG344_windows.zip design file in accordance with UG344.pdf on two different Win Xp machines
Using the same BDM one PC shows the debugger in device manager as driver version 126.96.36.199. and on the other PC the same debugger shows as driver version 188.8.131.52
What version should be used running Xilinx 9.2.04i?

Are you encountering any issues with the version differences when connecting the board using DLC9G cable?

Please refer https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/user_guides/ug344.pdf to know more details about drive installation issues. Also refer https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/20429.html
FYI: Platform DLC9G USB cables are not tested with usb3.0.

I have been trying to remotely debug an offshore facility. They informed me that the DLC9G debuggers are ‘unreliable’. A common failure they see when trying to program a Bit file is; Xilinx responds with an ID-CODE mismatch. When I perform a looping check of the IDCode in iMPACT, frequently there are only 3-7 iterations before a failure is encountered.
Testing on the same PCB in my facility, passes 100%.
A different facility running the same software informed me that when this happens to them, they reinstall BDM drivers and ‘eventually’ it will start working again.
Researching deeper into drivers I discovered that 2 different machines with the same versions of Xilinx, show different Rev of DLL. I don’t know if this is some indication of what is happening, but at the least I would expect them to be the same.
