ISE Install 11.1 - When I use multiple versions of ISE, uninstalling one version removes the XILINX environment variable


I have two versions of Xilinx ISE installed on my Windows machine. When I uninstalled one of the versions, my "%XILINX%" environment variable was removed and the "%XILINX%\bin\nt" portion of my PATH environment variable was removed.


This is a known issue with the Xilinx uninstaller which will be resolved in the next major release. To work around this issue, you will need to manually reset your "%XILINX%" environment variable and add "%XILINX%\bin\nt" to the beginning of your "%PATH%" environment variable.
