Virtex-II Pro Developer's Kit - Error: "Unable To Locate DLL The dynamic link library cygwin1.dll could not be found..."

Description

Keywords: Cygwin, path, V2P, path, Virtex-II Pro, cygnus

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I try to run "make" or "powerpc-eabi-gcc" from the Virtex-II Pro shell, an error reports:

"Unable To Locate DLL. The dynamic link library cygwin1.dll could not be found in the specified path."

Solution

This error message is due to the fact that the "set cygwinpath=" is not set in the v2pro_setup.bat file.

In the directory where you installed the Developer's Kit (default: C:\XILINX\V2PDK), open the v2pro_setup.bat file in a text editor (such as Wordpad) and search for the line "set cygwinpath". Add the path to where you installed Cygwin (e.g.,"set cygwinpath=C:\cygwin\bin"). Save the file and quit the text editor.

You can now open the v2pro_shell and run "make" or "powerpc-eabi-gcc".
