I'm new to these forums, so please let me know if I'm posting this question in the wrong place.
I just received my Basys3 board in the mail today. Since I'm fairly new to FPGAs, I decided to start off by simply programming the device with the Abacus Demo. While I've been able to program the device with the demo, I can only do so when I move the bitstream file out of my project directory. The project is located at C:/Users/Chris/Desktop/GraduateProject/Basys_3_Intro. When I attempt to program the Basys3 with the bitstream file that is located within a subdirectory of the project, I get the following error:
ERROR: [Labtools 27-2149] File C:/Users/Chris/Desktop/GraduateProject/Basys_3_Intro/Basys_3_Intro.runs/impl_1/Basys3_Abacus_Top.bit not found. Check file name and file permissions.
However, if I copy the bitstream file to my desktop, so that it's located at C:/Users/Chris/Desktop/Basys3_Abacus_Top.bit, then the file can be accessed and the Basys3 is programmed without any errors. Any idea what's happening here or what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!
