FPGA program and EEPROM ID fails with ADS7-V2EBZ and AD6679

Now with the newest version of SPI-Controller and VisualAnalog, the device config files are available,

but I still can't get neither of the programs to work.


SPI-Controller fails with the error "The FPGA needs to be programmed on ADS7V2 platform for SPI operations.",

however, there is no hint in the documations on how this should be done on the ADS7V2 platform (JTAG, USB, ...)


VisualAnalog outputs a message the the FPGA is not programmed and will be programmed next,

but it fails with the Error

"SDPERROR 100026: A Daughter Board was found, but had no FMC EEPROM records. EEPROM is invalid!"


This seems to point to a problem with the AD6679 FMC card, no?


Also, the FPGA_DONE LED is not lit and there was no message "FPGA programming done" or similar.


Am I missing something ?


The ADS7V2 board appears in the Device Manager under "ADI Development Tools", so the drivers seem to be installed fine.
