Mini-USB(JTAG) to USB(PC) programming on Spartan-6 SP605

Hello.

Please understand I am new to FPGA and Xilinx. 

I have a Spartan-6 FPGA SP605 and I have a trouble using the Mini-USB(JTAG) to USB(PC) connection through iMPACT.

 

I tried every sources I could find to program the board. 

 

I did try to use install_drivers.exe in Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\ISE\bin\nt to get the "32-bit" driver to be installed but it doesn't work.

 

I also tried using command prompt(admin) to install the driver. And I am getting following messages below.

 

Please help me out. Thank you.

Hi john.jlee007@gmail.com,

 

Please share the OS details.

Please go through this AR#18419 for ISE 14.7 supported OS.

Re: Mini-USB(JTAG) to USB(PC) programming on Spartan-6 SP605

I am using Windows 10 with ISE 14.7.

 

I managed to work around applications to bypass to 32-bit mode, including opening iMPACT.

 

But I am having trouble programming the board like shown above.

 

Thank you.

Re: Mini-USB(JTAG) to USB(PC) programming on Spartan-6 SP605

Hi Guys,

 

To use ISE on Windows 10, you need the Virtual box as we don't support this on Win10:

https://www.xilinx.com/support/download/index.html/content/xilinx/en/downloadNav/design-tools.html 

Otherwise, make sure you are using a supported OS:

Windows XP Pro/Windows 7 Pro 32/64-bit/Windows Server 2008
