*Obsolete* 4.1i iMPACT - "ERROR:Portability:90 - Command line error: Argument[2]...'/dev/ttya'"

Description

Keywords: impact, ttya, Project navigator, ISE, UNIX

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
After I set properties for the cable setup (e.g., the speed [19200] and the port [/dev/ttya]) in ISE (iMPACT properties), iMPACT does not start correctly. Instead, the following errors are reported:

"ERROR:iMPACT - Command line Error: unknown switch "!"

"ERROR:Portability:90 - Command line error: Argument[2] "/dev/ttya" needs to match one of these keywords:
"auto|lpt1|lpt2|lpt3|com1|com2|com3|com4|usb0|usb1|usb2|ttya|ttyb|tty00|tty01"."

However, from the ISE GUI, I can only select from a list and cannot type the option "ttya".

Solution

This problem is fixed in the latest 4.2i Service Pack, available at:

The first service pack containing this fix is 4.2i Service Pack 2.
