Before a design tool can communicate with any Xilinx cable (e.g., Platform Cable USB, Parallel Cable IV, etc.), Xilinx cable drivers must be recompiled for the host system's Linux kernel version and then installed. Otherwise, the cable will not connect and the design tool will generate one or more of the following error messages:
"Module windrvr6 is not loaded. Please reinstall the cable drivers. See Xilinx Answer Record 22648."
"Please update to WinDriver version 8.02 or later. See Xilinx Answer Record 22648."
