Cable drivers with Vivado under windows 10


I've had some trouble with Vivado Cable drivers under Windows 10 - Hardware Manager fails to detect hardware and the log says "warning: cannot find symbol ftdimgr_lock in library dpcomm.dll, frequently used Digilent JTAG cables cannot be supported"

To fix this open a windows command problem, but use "Run as Administrator".

Then reinstall the cable drivers with the following commands.

cd \Xilinx\Vivado\2016.4\data\xicom\cable_drivers\nt64

install_drivers_wrapper.bat \Xilinx\Vivado\2016.4\data\xicom\cable_drivers\nt64 c:\Xilinx\Vivado\2016.4\install.log c:\Xilinx\Vivado\2016.4\

Oh, I've just used Vivado on a freshly re-installed Win10 laptop and had to use this fix again.

Just remember to either reboot once the drivers have correctly installed, or kill off the "hw_server" process.
