HDL Bencher - The testbench waveform (.tbw) cannot be saved without Administrator privileges on Windows 2000/NT


Keywords: Windows, 2000, 2K, NT, admin, .tbw, TBW, save, waveform

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When trying to save a .tbw source in ISE without Administrator or Power User privileges, an error message reports that I cannot run multiple instances of HDL Bencher.


This happens because HDL Bencher tries to write the path of the .tbw to the HDLBencher.ini file stored in the C:\WinNT directory. Users must have Administrator privileges to write to this directory in Windows 2000 and Windows NT.

Therefore, to avoid this problem, you need to have Administrator or Power User privileges to the Windows NT directory.
