14.6 SDK - XMD hits segmentation fault when trying to connect to device specifying "-cable type digilent_plugin"


Is the Digilent Plug-in Supported in SDK? If I try to connect to a device in XMD specifying "-cable type digilent_plugin", I get a segmentation fault.

How can I address this?


Support for the Digilent Plug-in has deprecated in XMD. Users are recommended to use the xilinx_tcf Plug-in.

The hw_server gets started automatically, if not started already, whenever the user runs a connect command in XMD and the xilinx_tcf is selected by default.

Users do not need to specify the cable type, doing so will result in the segmentation fault.
