General Description:
Why do I get a Matlab Error when using the resource estimator to read in my Post-Map Area results?

When I tried to read in my *.mrp report I get the following error:

"Error in ==> Y:\XILINX\MATLAB6p5\toolbox\xilinx\sysgen\bin\xlCalculateResources.m
On line 227 ==>

Error in ==> Y:\XILINX\MATLAB6p5\toolbox\xilinx\sysgen\bin\xlEstimateResources.m
On line 12 ==>"

Solution

This problem is a result of the Matlab directory ( Y:\XILINX\MATLAB6p5\toolbox\xilinx\sysgen\bin\) directory being unwritable.
Sysgen writes temporary batch files out to the Sysgen "bin" directory. ( Y:\XILINX\MATLAB6p5\toolbox\xilinx\sysgen\bin\)
This is required by a number of scripts that run behind the scenes.

The resolution is to make the Sysgen directory writable. ( Y:\XILINX\MATLAB6p5\toolbox\xilinx\sysgen\bin\)
