M1.3 Performance Pack: Usage of Lab Install


Keywords: Lab Install, M1, Performance Pack

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
This solution record describes general usage of the Lab Install found on the M1.3 Performance Pack CD.

Topics covered include: executables included, licensing of applications and where to install.



Where to install:

The ntlab/setup.exe should only be run on a PC which DOES NOT already have Xilinx M1 installed. The reason for this is because some of the data files exist but are empty, thus not allowing the full version of Xilinx to run properly.

The Lab Install only installs the Hardware Debugger, Prom File Formatter and JTAG Programmer and the necessary files for those to run properly. There is no need to do the Lab Install on a PC that already has the Xilinx tools installed, there are no new features or patches that cannot be found in the patch

If you have done the Lab Install over original Xilinx, then you will need to re-install Xilinx. Also, you will need to re-install the speed files and patches from the Performance Pack. For additional info see (Xilinx Answer 3062):


Executables and Licensing

The executables included in the Lab Install are not licensed by Xilinx. Thus, no licensing setup is required for the PC running the Lab Tools.

The lab tools included in this installation are: Hardware Debugger (hwdebugr), JTAG Programmer (jtagpgmr) and Prom File Formatter (promfmtr). As well as the supporting data files.
