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


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?


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.
