Cable connection failed...W​ARNING:iMP​ACT:923 - Can not find cable, check cable setup !

Hi again

I'm using ISE 10.1 License version & XC3S4000(Opal Kelly XEM3050 USB Board) & Window7 32bit

I did generate bit file but I got a cable connection failed error like below

case 1. Cable Auto Connect

case 2. Initialize Chain

 

How can I fix it?

Thanks in advance

There are two likely conditions that are causing your problem.

   1) The ISE 10.1 software does not support Windows 7, you will need to upgrade to 12.3 for support

   2) You have connected directly to the USB port on the XEM3050 and this can not configure the PROM or FPGA. 

          - You need a Xilinx JTAG cable either the PC-IV or USB.

 

 

Also, this should be in the "3rd Party/Other Boards and Kits" as the XEM3050 is not produced by Xilinx.

Windows 7 isn’t officially supported until ISE tools version 13.1. You can find more details in http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/35072.htm

However, I believe most core functions should work with Windows 7 in case of ISE12.3 tools

I also use Xilinx 10. The cable works in ISE but not in EDK (though I installed EDK with drivers)!

For EDK cables, I downloaded the Virtual Machine and ran WinXP. Though, it is slow and does not support SDRAM anyway (despite of tha claims that EDK 10.1 sp3 must do it).
