FPGA Express v2.x (Foundation & Alliance) - How do I install FPGA Express v2.x for use on a PC network?


Keywords: FPGA Express, Alliance Express, Foundation Express, 2.0, 2.0.1, 2.0.2, 2.0.3, network, PC, install

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Is it possible to install FPGA Express (Foundation or Alliance) for use on a PC network?


Yes -- To install FPGA Express for PC network operation, the FPGA Express software must be installed on each PC that will use it. FPGA Express is a Windows 95/NT program that uses the Windows 95/NT registry; each PC that uses FPGA Express on a PC network must have the same registry settings.

To do this:

1. Run the FPGA Express installation software on a PC that will use FPGA Express from the network.

2. When the FPGA Express install software asks for the installation path, the path specified must be a network drive.

3. Repeat steps (1) and (2) for every PC that will use FPGA Express from the network. Be sure to install to the same network drive location each and every time.

NOTE: Since this is a network installation, the LM_LICENSE_FILE variable must be set to a port@hostname, rather than a path.
