7.1i SP2 EDK - XMD "ERROR:Portability:3" occurs when I attempt to connect to a PowerPC or MicroBlaze Processor


When I attempt to connect from XMD to a MicroBlaze or PowerPC Processor, Windows error reports: 


"The instruction at "0x0040d7a4" referenced memory at "0x65726178". The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program".  


If I launch XMD from a Cygwin Shell, the following error message appears: 


"ERROR:Portability:3 -...As it is likely that this may be an unforeseen problem, please be prepared to submit relevant design files if necessary."


This problem occurs if EDK 7.1 Service Pack 2 is installed without EDK 7.1 Service Pack 1 having been installed. 


To resolve the problem: 


- Uninstall EDK 7.1 Service Pack 2  

- Install EDK 7.1 Service Pack 1 

- Install EDK 7.1 Service Pack 2
