This guide is for the new type Flash-Link cable (red label) only.

Step 1:  Open Internet Explorer and navigate to the Spartan-RC website and load the Flash-Link page, click on the link “Manual Install Driver for Windows XP” as shown in a red circle below.

 

Step 2: Click “Run” on the following dialog box.

 

Step 3: Click “Run” on the following dialog box.

 

Step 4: The following box will be displayed, press “Ok”.

 

Step 5: The following dialog box will be displayed, do not change any thing here, just press “Unzip”.

 

Step 6: The following dialog box will be displayed, press “Ok”.

 

Step 7: Click “Close” on the following dialog box.

 

Step 8: Now take the Spartan RC Flash Link (like the one shown below) and plug it into a spare USB port on the same computer you extracted the driver files to.

 

Step 9: The following will be displayed in the notification area of the Windows task bar.

Soon after the following dialog box will appear. Select “No, not at this time” and then click “Next”.

If the this dialog box is not displayed then either the Flash-Link has not been detected or the driver is already installed.

Step 11: Tick “Include this location in the search” and then press “Browse”.

(Note: your folder listing may look different).

 

Step 13: Unselect the "Search removable media..." option. Check that “C:\Spartan_Flash-Link_driver” is displayed in the search location and click "Next".

 

Step 14: If the following warning is displayed, press “Continue Anyway”.

 

 

Step 15: The following dialog will be displayed to indicate successful driver installation, click “Finish”.

 

Your Flash-Link is now working. If you have not already done so you will now need to download the configuration or firmware update tool for your Spartan product. This can be found on the web page of that product.  For example, the firmware loader tool for the AP-2000i is located on the AP-2000i web page. The ds760 configuration tool on the ds760's web page.
