When using the FlashPRO5 programmer, you can download and install the latest release of FlashPro or FlashPro Express from the Microsemi website.
There is no other configuration or firmware required. If the power LED is on and you are able to select the device in the FlashPro software, it should be ready to use.
If you encounter a problem starting the device, please study the Software/Hardware Installation Guideline.
You may also need to be aware that errors can occur because there is something interfering with the power rail on the target board, so it could help to measure and double-check the voltage on the Vjtag pin.
