9.2 System Generator for DSP - How can I move the System Generator cache directory from the Application Data folder to a new location?

Description

System Generator caches information for netlisting as well as simulation for various blocks in the following directory: 

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Xilinx\Sysgen\cache3  

 

How can I move this cache directory to a new location?

Solution

Create a text file called sgdcache.conf and add the following lines: 

 

rootdir c:/cache 

maxsize 2048 

maxentries 100000 

 

Where c:/cache is the desired location for the System Generator cache. 

 

Save this file to the following location in the System Generator install tree: 

<SysGen install directory>\xilinx\sysgen\bin 

 

This resolution applies through System Generator 9.2.
