A1.4 NGD2EDIF -v Mentor on a PC gives "FATAL_ERROR:baspm:baspmdlm.c:99:1.18 dll library <mtrne> does not exist..."

Description

Keywords: NGD2EDIF, Mentor, libmtrne, DLL, mtrne

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When running "NGD2EDIF -v Mentor" on a PC that uses Windows 95 or Windows NT4.0, I encounter the following error:

ngd2edif: version M1.4.12
Copyright (c) 1995-1997 Xilinx, Inc. All rights reserved.
FATAL_ERROR:baspm:baspmdlm.c:99:1.18 - dll library <mtrne> does not exist.
Process will terminate. Please call Xilinx support.

Solution

The PC version of A1.4 is missing the libmtrne.dll, as Mentor is a UNIX Workstation tool; however, the libmtrne.dll can be found at:
http://www.xilinx.com/support/troubleshoot/htm_index/sw_mentor.htm

Click on "libmtrne.zip" to download the file.

The file must be placed in the $XILINX/mentor/bin/nt/directory. (If this directory does not exist, it must be created.)

A1.5 will have this capability without patches.
