7A50T board UART problem

I am trying to follow the quickstart guide for the 7A50T board. I installed the UART driver from the link on the quickstart guide. It says it was sucessful and shows up under device manager. When I configure realterm to use this port with the 115200 8 bits 1 stop bit no parity settings mentioned in the quickstart guide I am unable to see any sucessful transmission when pushing switch 8. Also realterm is indicating that there is a "break" condition.


Any suggestions on how to get the UART to USB working for the demo on 7A50T eval board would be much appreicated

Simple question but perhaps very inportant.  What bit file is loaded into the FPGA?  You need to insure that you have a design loaded that has a UART in it.
