2013.10 PetaLinux - Error:Could not open plug-in of the type: digilent_​plugin. Please check to make sure the correct plug-in for this type is properly installed.

Description

I am trying to boot a project built from ZC702 pre-built BSP. 

When issuing the command below:
$ petalinux-boot --jtag --prebuilt 3

I see the following messages:
Error:Could not open plug-in of the type: digilent_plugin. Please check to make sure the correct plug-in for this type is properly installed.
The following targetNames are available:
  xilinx_svffile (libCseSvfFilePlugin)
  xilinx_tcf (libCseTcfPlugin)
  auto (libCseXilCommPlugin)
  xilinx_parallel (libCseXilCommPlugin)
  xilinx_platformusb (libCseXilCommPlugin)
  xilinx_file (libCseXilCommPlugin)
  xilinx_xvc (libCseXvcPlugin)
ERROR: Unable to download the image

What is the cause of the error?

Solution

Sourcing either the ISE or Vivado tools after sourcing the PetaLinux setup script results in this error. 

The PetaLinux setup script should be sourced last.
 
For best results, source the ISE/Vivado script first and then the PetaLinux script.
