Driver Installation Instructions
The SmartLynq Data Cable is designed to work with Vivado® HLx Edition version 2017.2 and beyond. Install the latest version of Vivado from Downloads.
If using Windows with Vivado version 2017.2 and a USB connection for SmartLynq, you will need to complete these additional steps:
- Install the Vivado 2017.2.1 update from Downloads
- Run the following commands in an administrator command prompt:
cd %VIVADO_INSTALL_DIR%\data\xicom\cable_drivers\nt64 install_drivers_wrapper.bat
- Set or replace %VIVADO_INSTALL_DIR% with the location of your install directory. A file named install_drivers_wrapper.log will be placed under %VIVADO_INSTALL_DIR% when this command is run.
Note: With the Vivado 2017.3 release and beyond, these steps will no longer be necessary.
