9.1i EDK - Error occurs during synthesis: " Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator"


During netlist generation in EDK 9.1i, an error message occurs:

"Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator"

The same error occurs when I try to import the embedded processor system in ISE 9.1i during synthesis. How can I resolve this issue?


Make sure that you have administrator privileges. You can verify this in the "Installing EDK" section of the EDK Getting Started document. Xilinx also recommends using the "Administrator" login when running EDK on Windows.
