*Obsolete* 4.1is1 iMPACT - "FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:WinApp.c:570:$Revision..." error is reported when I load an MCS


Keywords: Boundary Scan, load, MCS, fatal error

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I load an MCS file in Boundary Scan mode, the following error is reported:

FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:WinApp.c:570:$Revision - This process has discovered an exceptional condition from which it can not recover. Process will terminate.


Check to see if the .mcs file is larger than a Xilinx PROM can accommodate. If so, the bit file must be used to program the device.

NOTE: iMPACT will be updated to give a more detailed error message in the 4.2i software version.
