I have a SP60x embedded kit (Spartan 6). They gave me the board in the work and they have lost almost everything so I'm not sure which exact version.

I've downloaded the ISE Design Suite for Windows 10 - 14.7 soft.

I've launched the iMPACT software to check the board works correctly and all the drivers are installed and I get the following error message:

Error iMPACT - Bsdl reader is not available for device 1.

In the interface appears to have recognized the board correctly but strangely enough there's a second device marked as unknown and I would like to know whats happening.

So I posted the question on (Xilinx official forum)[https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Evaluation-Boards/Error-iMPACT-Bsdl-reader-is-not-available-for-device-unknown-0-8/m-p/910984/highlight/false#M19771].

I haven't tested it yet but it may be that the VM takes part of the JTAG chain making it a non-xilinx part.

If I test it I will confirm the result in both forums.
