11.2 ISE Design Suite Common Utilities - The file does not have write permissions for fileset.txt


Keywords: broken, doesn't, work, read, only

When updating the ISE Design Suite Common Utilities from 11.1 to 11.2, I see the following error:
The file does not have write permissions:


At this time, the file will be ignored and updating will continue


This is a known issue with the 11.x update.

To work around the issue, edit the permissions of the file to make it writeable. Copy the version line and edit the version number to 11.x (where x is the current version you have updated to).

Your fileset.txt should look similar to:

<Date>:: version=11.1
<Date>:: version=11.x

Once you make this edit, XilinxUpdate will be able to correctly modify this file for future updates.
