3.1i Install Windows NT - "ERROR: Unable to run remote setup from a local installation."


Keywords: install, remote, local, network, Windows NT, Windows 2000

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
While running a client install on a server using Windows NT, the installer displays
the following error:

ERROR: Unable to run remote setup from a local installation.


This error occurs if a $XILINX environment variable was already defined by an earlier
version of the software.

To see if the $XILINX variable is already defined on the client machine, go to a DOS
prompt and run the command "echo XILINX".

If the XILINX variable exists, delete it by going to My Computer -> System -> User
