I did get past the problem, but with no resolution on the the error codes. I have control lines from several analog multiplexers connected to the free port I/O pins. For some reason during programing, power must be applied to these devices. Apparently they are holding I/O lines on the FPGA in a state that causes the issue. Thanks for checking.
I'm new to the Papilio world. I've created a new .bit file to change some basic functionality within a design. I now get 0x19 or 0x11 as an error code. (failed to configure). Where can I find a detailed description of these error codes? Thanks in advance for any help.
