6.1i Install - During WebUpdate, the error "Windows cannot find 'c:\Program dir" appears

Description

Keywords: install, Windows, 6.1i, Japanese, shortcut, link, uninstall

During WebUpdate, the following error message is reported:

"Windows cannot find 'c:\Program dir"

This occurs when a space exists in the directory name.

Solution

Even though spaces in directory names are supported by Windows, they are not supported by Xilinx applications. WebUpdate does not correctly pass directory names with spaces.

To work around this issue, use directory names without spaces, or use an underscore character instead of spaces.
