If my device is shown in the chain, and I choose to apply a configuration file and select ".JED", Windows reports the following error:
"EXCEPTION:iMPACT:ConfigDataReader.c.85:1.24 - File access error.
ERROR:iMPACT:533 -deviceManagerProxy ->setDeviceAttriube( ) failed!
ERROR: The device must be either a JEDEC, BIT, RBC, Key, MCS or EXO file (name with a .jed, .bit, rbt, .mcs, .exo) or a BSDL file (a name with a .bsd extension)."
When iMPACT is used, a JEDEC file cannot be configured on the device if the extension is written out in upper-case characters (".JED"). Lower-case characters are required for the file extension:
To avoid these errors, change the name of the JEDEC file from ".JED" to ".jed", then load the file.
This limitation is fixed in 6.1i iMPACT.
