5.1i iMPACT - "ERROR:iMPACT:602 - Invalid file type. Please specify a .svf or .stapl file" when trying to load a .cdf file

Description

General Description: 

When I attempt to load a .cdf file with a device that is in either SelectMAP or slave serial mode, the following error is reported: 

 

"ERROR:iMPACT:602 - Invalid file type. Please specify a .svf or .stapl file."

Solution

This error message may be safely ignored, and operations can still be performed in 5.1i iMPACT. 

 

This problem is fixed in the latest 5.1i Service Pack, available at:  

http://support.xilinx.com/support/techsup/sw_updates  

The first service pack containing the fix is 5.1i Service Pack 1.
