    ZedBoard Xilinx SDK Program FPGA Failed (USB-JTAG)


      I am trying to program a hello world design to the ZedBoard using the J17 USB-JTAG port. I am following this tutorial: https://reference.digilentinc.com/learn/programmable-logic/tutorials/zybo-getting-started-with-zynq/start


      I am on step 11 where I have already setup the SDK project and am trying to program the FPGA. I get the following error after about 30 seconds:


      Program FPGA failed



      Could not find FPGA device on the board for connection 'Local'.


      Troubleshooting hints:

      1. Check whether board is connected to system properly.

      1. In case of zynq board, check whether Digilent/Xilinx cable switch settings are correct.

      1. If you are using Xilinx Platform Cable USB, ensure that status LED is green.


      I have tried uninstalling the "USB Receiver" driver that shows up in Device Manager when I plug and unplug the USB cable and restarting my computer but I get the same results.


      The only thing that shows up in the hardware manager of Vivado is "localhost(0)".


      Any suggestions?
