6.2i ChipsScope Pro - LPT2 port not found

Description

General Description: 

ChipScope 6.2i fails to find LPT2, and I receive the following messages: 

 

"ERROR: Open (or Close) Cable Failed. Check your host connection to the cable and try again." 

"ERROR: Failed to open Xilinx Parallel Cable"

Solution

For LPT2, ChipScope uses the same variable environment as iMPACT. 

 

To ensure that ChipScope detects the cable on LPT2, set XIL_IMPACT_ENV_LPT2_BASE_ADDRESS=xxxx (xxxx will be the address of your LPT2, for example C400). 

 

To select the LPT2 in ChipScope Analyzer: 

 

ChipScope's menu -> "JTAG Chain" -> Xilinx Parallel cable -> Port -> LPT2.
