7.1i ISE - User batch files cannot be executed from Project Navigator when using relative path specification

Description

Keywords: batch file, bat, open, execute, relative, path, Project Navigator, ISE, user document

Batch (*.bat) files can be added to a Project Navigator project as user documents. If Project Navigator has been set to display source files using absolute paths, a user can execute the batch file by double-clicking the file in the Project Navigator Sources window. However, if Project Navigator has been set to display source files using relative paths, double-clicking a batch file will open the file for editing in a text editor window.

Solution

Batch files may be executed from Project Navigator by doing either of the following:

1. Set the Path display to Absolute. This is done by right-clicking in the Sources window and selecting "Toggle Paths."
2. Copy the batch file into the project directory. If the batch file is in the project directory, it can be executed from Project Navigator when using either a relative or an absolute path.
