Can't program Atlys Spartan6 using Xilinx impact (Warning 923)

 Hi all,
I'm trying to program my Atlys Spartan 6 board using ISE iMPACT 11.5. However, this is the message I got:

I have try many methods to resolve this problem but it didn't work, including those solutions from here:
From the Digilent website, it states the board can be programmed by Digilent Adept Software or Xilinx's iMPACT using the Digilent Plugin for Xilinx Tools. I downloaded and copied the plugins to appopriate folder and still received the same warning. I also test the board with Adept Software from Digilent and it works without a hitch. If anyone can offer a solution, I greatly appreciate it.

Did you to to the following menu in iMPACT: Output - Cable Setup, and then select the "Cable Plug-in" box and find the Digilent Cable first?

 

This needs to occur before iMAPCT can be expected to find the cable. 

 

Also, make sure you are working with Digilent, they can help make sure the drivers are properly setup.

From the poster above:

 

I'm running Window XP 32bit through Boot Camp from my Macbook Pro. I'm not sure that is an issue since I use the same Xilinx iMPACT 11.5  to program Spartan 3E board and it works without a hitch.

You will need to use 12.1 or higher in order for the Digilent plug-in to work with iMPACT and ChipScope. 

 

This is noted on the Digilent webpage "Supported by Xilinx iMPACT (12.x only)"

Thanks for the quick reply. Do you know if MATLAB R2009a is compatible with Xilinx 12.1 or 12.3 ? If I download the Design Suite from Xilinx website http://www.xilinx.com/support/download/index.htm, do I have a trial period to use the Design Suite or I need the license key right away?

Sorry, I'm not DSP savvy so I'm not sure on the Matlab compatibility.

 

Digilent also has a program called Adept that can be used with their cables to program the devices instead of using impact.

 I downloaded the plugin from Digilent website and install according to their PDF guide to Xilinx Design Suite 12.1. I run iMPACT 12.1 again and type in "digilent_plugin" in Open Plug In box (according to the guide) and this is the message I got:
