Why will Chipscope analyser not work without an iMPACT or ISE install in the 8.x versions when installed on Windows 2000?
This is a cable driver issue. For the 8.1 and 8.2 Chipscope releases, you must have an ISE or iMPACT install, along with Chipscope, to have the cable drivers installed. Chipscope 8.1 and 8.2 will work standalone on Windows XP. This issue will not be fixed as Windows 2000 will no longer be supported after 9.1.
