6.2i Install - On a PC, at the end of the installation, I receive the Error message: "Installation failed."

Description

Keywords: install, network, error, installation, failed, PC, Windows

On a PC, at the end of the installation, I receive the Error message: "Installation failed.". None of the Xilinx applications are available from the Program Group desktop shortcuts.

Solution

This occurs when installing to a mounted network drive without a subdirectory for Xilinx software. Xilinx software is designed to be installed in a directory under ROOT (typically C: \Xilinx). The installer presents this option normally when installing to a local driver, but when installing to a mounted network drive, a subdirectory might not be defined and it appears to the Installer as if it is installing to a ROOT directory.

To work around this issue, define your target installation directory as "\Xilinx" under the network mount point (e.g. "N:\Xilinx").
