We have developed utilities with the libcsejtag.dll using a library supplied by Xilinx for use with the Platform Cable USB II.
They do not work with windows 10. Is there an update which will allow us to build for Windows 10 or some other path which continues to give us use of the Platform Cable USB II ? (Installing Vivado does not appear to be useful in resolving). Is there an updated library or API which will work?

Could you please take a look at this tread? Customer are reporting a procedure that was able to get the Platform Cable USB II to work with Windows 10.
Basically, the user @alexmoya reports the following steps:
1- Connect DLC10 to computer; in windows device manager it appears as "Xilinx Platform Cable USB" or something similar
2- Uninstall the cable driver ( with erase driver selected )
3- Uninstall Jungo driver ( with erase driver selected )
4- Disconnect DLC10
5- Delete c:\Windows\System32\drivers\windrvr6.sys; maybe you'll have to reboot in safe mode and erase the windrvr6.sys file manualy
6- Restart computer and open a command line with in admin mode
7- Go to <Xilinx install>\bin\ [nt|nt64] or <Xilinx install>[nt|nt64] with the command line and run
8- Connect DLC10 again and now, you'll see cable driver in Devide Manager as "Xilinx USB Cable"; programmer's LED should turn on yellow.

Thank you for the suggestion. All steps followed, but it did not help. There were no .inf files in the vivado labtools installation so given the path structure provided (nt64 etc), I assumed it meant to run wdreg from my ISE 14.7 labtools. I did not see a nt64 directory on vivado nor the inf files to install.
Typically I know everything is working if Impact can run. If Impact can run (64 bits) then I know if there is an issue it is my issue. Impact cannot run however.
My other concern is that we are building with a library (13.2) from some years ago. It's worked well though through win8.1.
Is there an update to the library available such that perhaps we can build with that and it would allow us to run the libcsejtag.dll API?

The only way we could get libcsetag applications to run successfuly with Windows 10 was to use the server version (libcsetagclient.dll)
What exactly is the status of the Csetag API? We developed several applications using it. It was always included with ISE -- it it included in Vivado? I didn't see it when I looked.
If csejtag is not included with Vivado, then how do new customers who have no history with ISE use our Csetag API based products?
Is there any update available of the Csejtag?

I guess I would echo the sentiment, what is the path for csejtag api? At the moment we're dead, no method available. IT wants to force use of Windows 10, we can't run CSEJTAG api on windows 10 due to drive issue.
While there was some alleged work-around regarding deleting this and that, it doesn't work with Impact or the csejtag api. And I'll further note that such steps are not easy to deploy in any scale or on a manufacturing floor.
It would have been good to know there was a future cut-off before we invested in using the API provided.
Thanks for any help. I would suggest a new release of CSEJTAG API to work on Windows 10.
