Thanks Attila, it works now. 

Please add a few words and clarity to the download pages, since it is not clear that Adept is required to be installed first for WF.  On the Adept Page, it only talks about Digital, FPGA, and Programming.  Simply stating on the Waveform download page the Adept is required to be installed first for WF and Analog Discovery/2 to the Adept download page would also be helpful.

Thanks

Hi @Imre

Thank you for the suggestion.

I have already asked the maintainer to add such note to the download form.

Currently it is mentioned on the reference page.

Yes, I saw that.  Clicking on it takes you to a page referencing Xylinx, FPGA, Digital programming, nothing about Waveforms or Analog Discovery.  Perhaps rewording the above reference would help a lot:   Linux:  Adept2 is required to be installed first.  Download from here ("here" has an HTML Link to the Adept2 download)

Thank you.
