System Generator for DSP - Why does my "Multiple Subsystem Generator" design fail with error message "An exception was raised: Could not copy to ?


During HDL Netlist generation for a design with the Multiple Subsystem Generator, I get an error stating "Could not copy <core netlist patch such as C:\core.edn> to <C:\very long path name\netlist>"?


This can occur if your target directory is extremely long. The Windows OS limits these paths to 256 characters, and while your target directory may not be exceeding this, some of the subdirectories created during generation may be. 


To correct this, select a target directory with a shorter path such as "C:\sysgen_netlist."
