Proflow : DOS error #53 : Can't open file.

Description

Upon entering ProFlow you may receive the following error :

DOS error #53 : Can't open file.

Solution

1

One possible cause of this error is a corrupted or incorrect project.lst
file. Open the <proser>\standard\vf\project.lst with a text editor and
examine the directory paths to be sure they exist. The project.lst file
should look like the following :

2
c:\designs\mydesign <---- Verify all directories exist
c:\others\urdesign <---- and not on a network.
c:\demos\pci <----

2

Verify that the WDIR variable in the c:\autoexec.bat file is set correctly. It should point to the <proser>/standard directory.
***Also be sure there are no spaces after the path.***
This is also known to cause this error.

For Example :

SET WDIR=C:\PROSER\STANDARD
