SDK 2015.3: Program Flash Issue on Non-Zynq 7 Series Devices

Description

When I select bitstream (*.bit) in the "Image file" field of Program Flash in SDK 2015.3, I am unable to program the flash on a non-Zynq 7 series device. 

However, I can successfully program the flash with an MCS or an ELF or a BIN file. 

Is this is a known issue?

Solution

This issue occurs in BootGen, which converts the bitstream to binary in the background before programming it.

A patch to resolve the issue is attached to this answer record.

Please apply the patch using the MYVIVADO environment variable and then launch SDK.

For example:

setenv MYVIVADO /path/to/bootgen_lin64
