Project Navigator - MAP process fails - "...not recognized as an internal or external command..."


When implementing a design, Translate completes successfully, but the MAP process fails. An error message is issued stating that MAP is not a recognized Command.


Process "Translate" completed successfully
'c:\MSVSN2-1\Vc7\include\map' is not a recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Process "MAP" failed


The Microsoft C++ Compiler program contains a "map" application. If this "map" application is found before the "map" executable in the "$XILINX\bin\nt" directory, this error will occur.

The PATH variable should be altered to place the "$XILINX\bin\nt" directory ahead of the compiler.

Alternately, a user may temporarily rename the MS application's "map" to another name while implementing an ISE design.
