Hi,
I started working on Atlys Spartan6(XC6SLX45) board with the Matlab 2015.4b . I started with LED Blinking example . I have a problem in setting target interface .
This is the error I got :
_Error using downstream.DownstreamIntegrationDriver/setBoardName Target platform "Xilinx Spartan-6 SP605 development board" requires synthesis tool Xilinx ISE. You can use the hdlsetuptoolpath function to add the appropriate synthesis tool path to your system path for the current MATLAB session. For more information, see "help hdlsetuptoolpath".
If you use an external command to add the synthesis tool path to your system path, use the 'Refresh' button in task 1.1 to import the new tool list.
Error in downstream.DownstreamIntegrationDriver/setOptionValue

I went through existing answers and searched using Advanced search I couldn't not find any answer to it .
Whenever I try to open setboardName.P this is what I get .
Any suggestions on how to proceed ?

Hi RAJASHEKAR, as the error message sugguested: "Target platform "Xilinx Spartan-6 SP605 development board" requires synthesis tool Xilinx ISE. You can use the hdlsetuptoolpath function to add the appropriate synthesis tool path to your system path for the current MATLAB session. For more information, see "help hdlsetuptoolpath"."
Please install a Xilinx ISE and use hdlsetuptoolpath to regsiter the ISE installation path in MATLAB, for example: >>hdlsetuptoolpath('ToolName', 'Xilinx ISE', 'ToolPath', 'C:\Xilinx\14.7\ISE_DS\ISE\bin\nt64\ise.exe')

Hi RAJASHEKAR, the 1st figure shows the SP605 board, but the Chip family shows as Virtex7. It still looks like something wrong with tool setup. Can you first make sure your ISE is available, and then try start a new project in a clean folder?
