LX9 Board / ISE suite 13.3

Hello,

I'm using a LX9 microboard. When I run Impact to download my bitstream, it says that the usb cable is not connected (but it is). I have tried different cable setup without success

 

I have downloaded the Adept software to do the job and it works. so it's not a problem with cable or the board I guess.

 

What can be the reason Impact doesn't see the cable since it is works with adept ?

 

many thanks

Hi Rodolphe,

 

I think this may be something that may have been covered in another forum post.  Hopefully this also works for your problem:

According to this post:

 

...

To fix this, after installing the 13.3 Xilinx tools, you must manually run the Digilent Installer(install_digilent.exe) found in: C:\Xilinx\13.3\ISE_DS\ISE\bin\nt\digilent.

Additionally, you must check to install Adept Runtime and Digilent CsePlugin components.
