I'm trying to program my xilinx xc95144XL-tqg100 with a jedec file but in "impact" (lab tools 14.7) the programmer and also the chip is beeing recogniced but after opening my config file (.jed) in the program config option window there are no options and there does not appear the PROGRAM button at the top line so I'm unable to program the chip.
Thanx for help!

Can you share a image of what impact is showing you? Are there any messages in the Console?

What troubleshooting have you done? Tested another identical board? Tested any other board to verify that the JTAG setup is all happy? Tried on a different PC with a different JTAG adaptor?

... have used another identical board with the same result, have tried another pc with windows 7 ... same result....
I Don't have another programmer available to test with but for me it's strange that the cpld will be recognized but after applying the .jed file there are NO options in programming options window available.

When you add the device / jedec in iMPACT there should be some info messages in the Console window. We might get some hints about the issue from the info messages.

What happens when you identify the chain? In iMPACT you can select the Identify Chain Icon highlighted here
If you add the device directly the chain and connection is not open and you don't have the option to program.
If the chain has problems identifing the chain I would suggest investigating the cable set up.
In impact select Output -> Cable -> Setup
Then ensure that the Cable is setup correctly according to the HW you are using.
