3.1i Install - Error:"Setup.exe is linked to missing export KERNEL32.dll: getdiskfreeSpaceExA" (Windows 95)


Keywords: 3.1i, install, Windows 95, Win95, setup, linked, missing, export, kernel32.dll,

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When installing version 3.1i of the Xilinx tools (Foundation or Alliance) onto a Windows 95
machine, users may encounter this error message:

"Setup.exe is linked to missing export KERNEL32.dll: getdiskfreeSpaceExA"


Foundation 3.1i is not tested or supported on Windows 95, but this solution is provided to assist
existing users who are still using this operating system.

The problem is that the specific function called "GetDiskFreeSpaceEx", used by the Xilinx 3.1i
Installer, was not supported on Windows 95 until version OSR2 (Operating System Release 2).
You must upgrade to this version in order to use Xilinx Foundation 3.1i tools.

Installation onto a Windows 95 OSR2 machine will most likely be successful; however, please
note that no versions of Windows 95 are supported. To get optimum performance, we recommend
that users upgrade to Windows 98, NT, or 2000.
