10.1 iMPACT - Programming file is not reloaded after modification outside of iMPACT


When I make some design changes and regenerate my bit file, iMPACT prompts me as follows: 


"This file has been modified outside of Impact. Do you want to reload it?" 


After selecting "Yes," the design does not seem to have been updated after reconfiguration. What is the problem?


iMPACT is not updating the file and is using a cached version. 


To work around this problem, delete the device from the JTAG chain and add it again; this will force a reload to the file.  


This issue is resolved in iMPACT 10.1 Service Pack 3.
