Hello,
Advisor section "4.4 Program Target Device" will pick any device with xilinx or digilent interface and will cause programming error.
I do have multiple devices on usb ports which uses same kind of interface. HDL Workflow advisor tcl scripts can not identify correct one. I checked tcl script and line "current_hw_target [get_hw_targets *]" is trying to find any device. But problem is that there is two or three devices already present.
How to edit this tcl script permanently? It will be generated again in every time and modifications will be over written.
Best Regards Antti

Hi Antti,
This is a limitation of current HDL Workflow Advisor (R2015b). There is no option to configure the JTAG programming. The work-around is to open the Vivado project using the link in "Create Project" task, and program the FPGA through Vivado. Or you have to leave only one JTAG device connected.
We are working on improving the tool for the coming releases to provide more customization for programming methods.
Best Regards, Wang

I also get an error at Section 4.4 of Workflow Advisor (Matlab R2015b, Vivado 2015.3).
Matlab generates the 'vivado_download.tcl' script with the following command:
connect_hw_server -host localhost -port 60001
but these arguments are deprecated in the Vivado 2015.3
the current syntax would be, according to Vivado help:
connect_hw_server [-url < arg >]
