I have the Cmod A7 35T, downloaded Vivado 2016.4, and I am on Windows 7 OS. When I go into the hardware manager I can connect to the localhost (connect_hw_server) but when I attempt open_hw_target I get the following error in the Tcl Console: Error: [Labtoolstcl 44-469] There is no hw_target.
I've checked to make sure that my device drivers are up to date. I'm just using a standard micro-usb cable that I had in my house. According to Digilent, I don't need a special USB cable.
Any help or advice you could provide would be extremely appreciated.
Edit: I've tried a few more things and want to provide some more information.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled Vivado. When I reinstalled it I made sure that "Install Cable Drivers" was selected.
I went into Device Manager and made sure my drivers were up to date. There was even an iteration where I uninstalled the drivers and manually installed them from the command line.
When I plug in my Cmod A7, the out of box demo is already loaded on the board. I can click button 0 and the LEDs "count" as expected. I have Tera Term and I can click button 2. Tera Term then displays the Memory Test Application as expected.
