8.1i iMPACT - MCS programming in iMPACT fails when Design Revisioning is enabled

Description

Programming a PROM file with Design Revisioning enabled fails with iMPACT 8.1 with the following error message:

ERROR:iMPACT - The operation did not complete successfully.

PROGRESS_END - End Operation.

Elapsed time = 127 sec.

Solution

The problem is because when iMPACT initially operates on the PROMs the default options must be used. When first using iMPACT to program a PROM, the software must be used without the Advanced Properties. Program the PROM with the default options first to initialize the software. After this first programing, the software will not be able to use the Advanced Properties on the PROMs.

This will be fixed in the 8.2i release of the Design Environment Tools.
