*Obsolete* 4.2i iMPACT - "Programming Failed" message is displayed when I generate an SVF file for Virtex-II Pro

Description

Keywords: SVF, program

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I target a Virtex-II Pro device in the ".svf" file generation mode, a "Programming Failed" message is displayed after programming.

Solution

iMPACT is erroneously checking the DONE status when it should not be in SVF mode.

The SVF file is still generated, and is valid.

This problem is fixed in the latest 4.2i Service Pack, available at:
http://support.xilinx.com/support/techsup/sw_updates
The first service pack containing the fix is 4.2i Service Pack 1.
