ERROR: Chipscope Inserter (Setup Mode) launch failed

Jump to solution

I added a CDC file into a ISE project(ISE14.7 on WIN 7 x64, vivado 2018 is also in my computer), this project is from a ex-colleague and generated by a TCL script, I just want to debug on this project with chipscope tool.

After I clicked the CDC file for selecting debug signals, there was a strange error showed on the report window——"ERROR: Chipscope Inserter (Setup Mode) launch failed" , then openning CDC file failed, this error showed without any detail message, it seemed to tell you "you just can not open the CDC file", is any possilbe error existing in this project setting ? anybody know this error and help me to fix it ?

BTW, after that, I built a new ISE project on my computer and added the CDC file, then opened it, everything was ok, it can prove that my computer environment is ok.

the error message picture is attached below.

Hi @glace12123 ,

 

I found a few other forum posts that might help you solve this issue.

Summarizling, please check:

  • The lenght of file path (try reducing the length).
  • Make a new project in a different location.
  • Check if the OS you are using is supported for ISE.

thanks for answering! I think the problem maybe the length of file name or path, but it dosen`t bother me now, I used the ILA and ICON core instead of CDC file to avoid that problem.
