Vivado can not connect cables

Hello,

I have installed vivado 2016.3. After bit generating, it can not connect the USB cable which said

'there is no current hw_target'.

I reinstalled the vivado 2016.3, installed the vivado 2016.2. But it is still not working.

I am sure I activated the checkbox of 'install cable drivers' and disconnected all the USB cables when installtion.

My OS is win7 64bits.

Could anybody give me some advices, thanks a lot.

Hi @adrian7

Did you tried using another cable?

How about connecting with 2016.2?

Thanks,Vijay

Hi,

Is your BIT file vivado version and tool for hardware debugging is same? For example bit file generated with 2016.1 but configuring using 2016.3 may cause problem sometimes. Please do check.

Thanks,
Yash

Hi Vijay
1.I usually use a High-Speed Programming Cable. And I have another Platform Cable USB. The platform cable works even worse, whose LED indicator wasn't on.
2.It did not work with vivado 2016.2 either.
3.The iMPACT(previously installed with ISE 14.7) can not connect the cable either now.

Hi Yash
This problem is 'can not connect', not 'can not program'. Programing the device is a next step while I stopped at the beginning....

Hi @adrian7

Can you please check which version of Jungo drivers that your machine has?

Can you please try installing the Jungo drivers (10.2.1.0) from ISE database and see if that helps.

 Please reinstall & install the drivers by following the below procedure:

    Right click on My computer and select Manage
    In Computer Management window, select Device Manager in left pane
    Expand Jungo and right click on WinDriver
    Select Uninstall
    Restart the machine and make sure no USB cables are connected.
    Open Command Prompt (with administrator rights) and navigate to C:\Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\ISE\bin\nt64
    Run the command: wdreg -compat -inf windrvr6.inf install
    Now try connecting the cable.

Thanks,Vijay
