The document you linked has the same steps once in the SDK, given a certain bitfile. My issue is when I actually try to program the FPGA, which is on page 19 of the document you linked.
It also only mentions downloading the Cypress driver (which I believe is just the USB-UART port) which I already have. I can see the UART COM port when I connect a micro USB cable to it, just not when I connect to the USB-JTAG port (J17).
The ZedBoard USB-JTAG cable drivers are supposed to be installed with Vivado, as long as you selected the checkbox to "Install Cable Drivers." You can install them manually and try again.

Thank you! Re-installing the driver manually w/ the 64-bit (in my case) version worked, using the following command, after cd'ing into the directory of the installer:
C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2019.1\data\xicom\cable_drivers\nt64>install_drivers_wrapper.bat C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2019.1\data\xicom\cable_drivers\nt64 CC:\Xilinx\Vivado\2019.1\install.log C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2019.1\

Thanks for letting us know, and good luck with your design!
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'.
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)".
