    drivers needed for BASYS3

    Hi Kaitlyn, It turned out to be just as you suspected,, a case of a shady USB cable I found one of a higher quality, i.e. thicker, more strain relief, etc and with it, the BASYS3 board was immediately recognized by Windows and Vivado. Thank you again for the help.

    drivers needed for BASYS3

    Hi Kaitlyn, Thank you for the pointer. Per your recommendation I went back to the Vivado install and made sure cable drivers was selected. The install ran into an issue where it reported: There is currently 1 open application using WinDriver. Please close all applications and press Retry. Unfortunately, I don't know what WinDriver is nor which application would be using it. In any case, I closed every application down and did the install again and it completed successfully without this warning message. i then rebooted. Unfortunately, even after the updated install for the cable drivers, I'm still getting the same warning in Vivado that no hardware targets exist. This is consistent with Device Manager that doesn't show any Digilent devices. I also don't get the familiar bell sound when I plug and unplug the USB cable to my BASYS3 board. Is there a check I can do somewhere on the machine in a particular directory to see if the driver file itself is there? Thank you.

    drivers needed for BASYS3

    Are there any special drivers one needs to download/install to get the BASYS3 board recognized by Windows7 64 bit? The board powers up and can run the shipping demos but my Windows 7 machine doesn't find the board anywhere in device manager and Vivado 14.4 cannot connect to the board. I can go so far as generating the bitstream but when I try to AutoConnect to target it gives this warning (which seems like it should be an error). I have checked all of the usual suspects that I could think of: multiple USB ports, reboot Windoze, open and close Vivado, verify jumpers are set correctly, using a known good microUSB cable, but still Vivado does not find my BASYS3. WARNING: [Labtoolstcl 44-26] No hardware targets exist on the server [localhost]Check to make sure the cable targets connected to this machine are properly connectedand powered up, then use the disconnect_hw_server and connect_hw_server commandsto re-register the hardware targets. Thank you.
