*Obsolete* M1.3 JTAG Programmer: Communications with the cable could not be established

Description

Keywords: cable setup, autoconnect, parallel cable, xchecker, jtag cable

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
If you upon invoking the JTAG Programmer try to connect to the cable through the Output -> Cable Setup menu, you will get a popup with an error message saying " Communications with the cable could not be established."

Solution

Exit the JTAG Programmer. Re-invoke it and do Output -> Cable Autoconnect. It is the only known way to connect to the cable with the M1.3 software.

If you try to change the cable type during a session, the JTAG Programmer will not be able to connect to the cable. In fact it will break the already existing connection.
