11.3/11.4 iMPACT - Virtex-6 - Programming encrypted bit file fails with "Programming Failed" message

Description

When I attempt to program my Virtex-6 device in iMPACT, I receive a "Programming Failed" message. I have programmed the encryption key in the ".nky" file, and I can program an unencrypted bit file.

What can be the problem?

Solution

Thisoccurs after power on if no other operations are attempted first. It does not happen after some other operations; for example, if you do a "Read Device Status" before attempting to program.
