Hi - I have recently upgraded to Win 10 and can no longer use Impact to programme CPLD's (Impact not supported > win 7 as far as I know). Is there any alternative software we can use in Win 10 and a USB Xilinix programmer?
Myself and the team work in CARE and we are very light users programming "older" families of CPLD's only.

Yes, we have not officially tested programming CPLD devices using iMPACT on windows-10.
while we will recommend you to stick to windows-7 for using iMPACT.
while you can try re-installing the cable drivers.
Also refer other forum posts more help on this.

Unfortunately answer is no.
Both iMPACT and CPLD are legacy products of Xilinx. Because of that we have no solution for them to work on windows-10.
Meanwhile we have workaround mentioned in following answer record to properly install the tool.
