10.1 ISE - Unable to launch iMPACT in batch mode after using Project Navigator to configure device

Description

I can typically run iMPACT in batch mode from a DOS window using the following syntax:

impact -batch my_impact_commands.cmd

where "my_impact_commands.cmd" contains the commands I want executed.

However, if I use "Configure Target Device" within Project Navigator, any subsequent uses of iMPACT via batch mode from a DOS window results in the DOS window closing automatically.

How can I continue using iMPACT in batch mode?

Solution

This is a known issue which will be resolved in the next major version of ISE.

To resolve this issue, either

1. Delete the ISE-generated "impact.cmd" file from the project directory, or

2. Invoke iMPACT from a location different from the ISE project directory.
