*Obsolete* 3.1i JTAG Programmer - "Reset Cable" followed by "Initialize Chain" using Xchecker cable causes Dr. Watson crash


Keywords: JTAG Programmer, Dr. Watson, core dump, crash, initialize, jtag, xchecker, nt

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When using 3.1i JTAG Programmer software with the Xchecker cable, the software might crash when the following sequence is executed on Windows NT.

Chain Initialize -> Reset Cable -> Chain Initialize


When using the xchecker cable and you have modified the composition of your boundary-scan chain it is recommended that you restart JTAG Programmer
rather than using the Reset Cable operation to re-initialize the application.
