VC709 Connectivity TRD, 2013.2 - Programming the board with VC709program.bat will not find MCS file


The tools are unable to find the .MCS file when following the instructions on page 33, "Program the VC709 Board," of the Virtex-7 FPGA XT Connectivity Targeted Reference Design for the VC709 Board (Vivado Design Suite 2013.2) User Guide v1.0 (UG962).


There is an error in the VC709program.cmd file associated with the VC709program.bat file. Without this change, the .bat file will not be able to find the .MCS file.

Line 6 needs to be changed from:

assignfiletoattachedflash -position 1 -file "../project_1/xt_connectivity_trd.runs/impl_1/VC709.mcs"


assignfiletoattachedflash -position 1 -file "./VC709.mcs"

This will be corrected in a later version of the Targeted Reference Design.
