PCIe Programmed I/O Example Design - Spartan-6 LX75T PCIe Development Kit



I've generated a PCIe Endpoint core using Core Generator and created a project under Xilinx ISE 14.7.  I have made the necessary changes to the code for the PCIe Programmed I/O Example Design, which I found under "Support Files and Downloads" at this link.


I've successfully built the project and burned the image.  I inserted the card into an empty PCIe x1 slot on my PC and rebooted.  The device shows as "Coproecessor" in Device Manager as expected.  Then, I try to update the device driver per the instructions, located in C:\Program Files\Avnet\PCIePIO_Demo, and continuously receive the error message "Windows could not find driver software for your device."


See the attached screenshots.


The software requirements for this reference design list Windows 7 as supported.  I'm running Windows 7 64-bit, and created the project under Xilinx ISE 14.7.


Can anyone help me solve this driver issue?
