SDSoC - Cannot debug application when targeting a custom platform


I have created a custom platform, and I can build my application. 

However, if I try to debug it in the SDSoC tool, I get an error on the SDSOC log console and a disconnect command is issued:

13:36:45 INFO : Disconnected from the channel tcfchan#1.
13:36:45 ERROR : Invalid target. Use "connect" command to connect to hw_server/TCF agent

How can this be resolved?


This is a known issue in the 2016.1 and 2016.2 releases. 

To resolve this issue follow the steps below:

Steps to patch:

  1. Navigate to C:\Xilinx\SDSoC\2016.x\SDK\2016.x\eclipse\win64.o\plugins
    • (if your installation is in C:\Xilinx and the version is 2016.1 or 2016.2)
  2. Delete the plugin com.xilinx.sdsoc.debug_*.jar
  3. Unzip the attached file and place the .jar file contained within it here
  4. Restart SDSoC
