11.3/11.4 iMPACT - Virtex-6 - Programming encrypted bit file fails with "Programming Failed" message


When I attempt to program my Virtex-6 device in iMPACT, I receive a "Programming Failed" message. I have programmed the encryption key in the ".nky" file, and I can program an unencrypted bit file.

What can be the problem?


Thisoccurs after power on if no other operations are attempted first. It does not happen after some other operations; for example, if you do a "Read Device Status" before attempting to program.
