*Obsolete* 4.1i iMPACT - "ERROR: iMPACT:376 - Error opening BSDL file..." appears when I open a 3.1 JTAG Programmer CDF file

Description

Keywords: iMPACT, chain, .cdf, CDF, program, download

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I attempt to load a CDF file created by JTAG Programmer 3.1 into iMPACT, an error similar to the following appears in the transcript window:

"ERROR:iMPACT:376 - Error opening BSDL file: C:\Xilinx\xc9500xl\data\xc95288xl_tq144.bsd.
ERROR:iMPACT:637 - Unable to locate the directory, please check file path!"

Solution

The CDF files generated by the 3.1 JTAG Programmer Software are not supported in the iMPACT Programmer Software. (There are formatting and instruction changes.)

To avoid these errors, create a 4.1i CDF file with iMPACT to describe the chain.
