The following error message is displayed on the console if the Digilent SDK Cable is used while attempting to launch XMD from within SDK:
"Error: Program FPGA Reason: Failed to connect to Xilinx hw_server."
How can I resolve this problem?
The recommended flow is to use the hw_server (Xilinx Tools -> Launch Hardware Server).
If for legacy reasons the Digilent Cable is used, you will need to manually set the cable type from"Auto Detect" to "Digilent USB Cable" in SDK: Xilinx Tools -> Configure JTAG Settings.
