4.1i CORE Generator Reed Solomon - After installing an IP Update I only see the Evaluation version

Description

Keywords: Encoder, Decoder, RS, R/S, FEC, Forward Error Correction

Urgency: Standard

General Description:

I just downloaded and installed the Reed Solomon Encoder and Decoder.
I then installed an IP Update to update my Xilinx Core Generator software,
and to get the latest cores. I now only see the Evaluation versions of the
Reed Solomon Encoder and Decoder. What happened?

Solution

You must install the downloaded Reed Solomon Encoder and Decoder
(As well as any "pay for" core) after installing the IP Update, as the IP Update
will install evaulation version over the existing files that are there, which
in this scenario is the full versions.
