4.1i CORE Generator - The E_IP1 Updates Installer will not install files created by IP Capture Tool


Keywords: IP, capture, tool, CORE Generator, COREGen, installer,

Urgency: Hot

General Description:
Updates Installer will not install cores that were zipped up by the IP Capture Tool. (This problem is seen on PC platforms only.) When the Updates Installer is run, the installer promptly issues a dialog box with following message:

"CORE Generator will now exit and begin installing your files. This may take a few moments
Please wait for a confirmation message before starting other programs."

CORE Generator exits, no confirmation message is issued, and none of the files are installed.


This problem occurs because the IP Capture Tool is not compressing the MANIFEST file with the appropriate path separator. Updates Installer needs the MANIFEST file in order to install the files in appropriate directories.

One way to install the files created by the IP Capture Tool is to use the WinZip utility to extract the files. (Be sure to extract the files using the folder names.)

This problem is fixed in 4.21 IP Update #2, which is scheduled to be released in March, 2002.
