iMPACT 14.3/4/5 - Carrying out indirect Flash Programming on a Virtex-7 XC7VH580T will cause tool to crash


Programming flash on a a Virtex-7 XC7VH580T device using the 14.3 or later version of the ChipScope or iMPACT tools causes a crash. How do I work around this issue?


This issue is related to (Xilinx Answer 52364). The design files used for Indirect programming are generated in Bitgen 14.2 and will exibit the same behavior as Bit file loaded by iMPACT as described in  (Xilinx Answer 55955). This issue will be resolved in iMPACT 14.6. To work around the issue, revert to a LabTools installation of iMPACT 14.2.
