*Obsolete* 3.1i JTAG Programmer - Reconfiguration of Virtex\-E\Spartan-II failures


Keywords: JTAG Programmer, reconfigure, fail, failure

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When trying to reconfigure a Virtex\E or Spartan-II device with the JTAG Programmer, the tool does not report an error, but the device does not get re-programmed.


Make sure that the "security" option was set to "none" when the bitstream was generated. To do this, check the BitGen report file (<design>.bgn) for the "-g Security:NONE option.

If this option is set to LEVEL2, reconfiguration via the JTAG Programmer will not be allowed.

To change this in the Design Options dialog box, click "Edit Options" next to Configuration,
go to the Readback tab and select "Enable Readback and Reconfiguration."
