14.2 iMPACT - Assigning the S25FL512S flash to a 7 series device will cause iMPACT to crash


Using the Indirect Programming flow with a 7 series device and S25FL512S flash, I see that the tool will crash with the following message:

_impact.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.

This crash occurs when I add the flash. How do I work around this issue?


This issue is resolved in iMPACT 14.3. For help to work around this issue in iMPACT 14.2, contact Xilinx Technical Support:
