12.1 ISE Design Suite Install - Install via UNC path does not work in command prompt

Description


I installed 12.1 to a network drive via a UNC path (\\SERVER1\FOLDER). When I launch a command prompt via the Start Menu -> Xilinx -> Accessories folder, the following error occurs:
" '\\SERVER1\FOLDER\ISE_DS' CMD.EXE was started with the above path as the current directory. UNC paths are not supported. Defaulting to Windows directory "

Solution


Microsoft Windows command prompt cannot change directories to a UNC path.
To work around this issue, map the network drive to a drive letter (see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308582). After setting the driver letter, navigate to your XILINX installation directory/common/bin/<platform> and launch the setupShortcut.bat script to fix your shortcuts.
