4.2i Install - Design Manager does not start on my client machine after a network installation

Description

Keyword: ISE, 4.2, network, installation, PAR, setXenv, M1, Design, Manager

Urgency: Standard.

General Description:
After completing an ISE FOUNDATION installation process successfully on my network server, I ran the SetXenv.bat on the client machine to set up the registry variable.

However, when I attempt to implement my design, Design Manager will not start. (In another attempt, the implementation process proceeded until the Place and Route step, then stopped.) How do I avoid this problem?

Solution

In some cases, when SetXenv.bat is run from the client machine, the registry update will not complete. As a result, the back-end tool will not start up when it is needed.

To solve this problem, run the revengine.exe file that is located on the server:

- From the client machine, navigate to the XILINX install directory. The "revengine" executable should be located in the following directory:
$Xilinx_install_directory$\bin\nt

- Once this file has been executed, reboot the client machine.
