Windows 8 not working with Papilio One

Recommended Posts

Am trying to get Papilio One working with WIndows 8.

The screen shows no change when I say write to FPGA. Looks like it is hanging. Under device drivers it shows dual RS232. But says it has not been installed correctly. There is a yellow exclamation mark next to it.

Can someone help ?

Hello KTL,

 

I'm on Windows 8 and it is working. There are two options, you can go with the FTDI drivers that Windows 8 installs by default. Those will work and they are the easiest way to get up and running.

 

Or you can take a look at this post for a solution that will allow the Papilio drivers to be installed:

If you are running 64 bit Windows 8 you may run into problems when you start to use ISE Webpack software, here is a fix for that:
