3.1 EDK SP2 - BSPGen: "Error: BSP file access: Cannot access template Path: ...."

Description

Keyword: EDK, EST, XPS, BSPGen, BSP, template, VxWorks

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I attempt to generate the BSP for VxWorks from XPS, a BSPGen error reports that a template in the following location cannot be opened:

C:\EDK\hw\coregen\ip\xilinx\drivers\bsp_tornado2_ppc405_v1_00_d\template

I am using EDK 3.1 with Service Pack 2, and "Generate BSP for VxWorks" will not run after I set the OS to "VxWorks" in the MSS.

Solution

This error occurs because XPS is incorrectly specifying the path when BSPGen is called up.

To work around this issue, run the following command in the project directory in an Xygwin shell:

bspgen.bat -h system.mhs -s system.mss -p . -e C:/EDK/hw

or

bspgen.bat -h system.mhs -s system.mss -p . -e C:\\EDK\\hw
