Running Mentor programs pld_* I see version M1.5.19 even though I just installed M1.5i (M1.5.25)

Description

Keywords: mentor, version, M1, pld_, M1.5.19, M1.5.25, update, patch

Urgency: Standard

General Description:

I just installed Xilinx version M1.5i (M1.5.25), but when I run any of the
following programs it shows that it is running version M1.5.19:

pld_da M1_5.19
pld_dmgr M1_5.19
pld_quicksim M1_5.19
pld_edif2tim M1_5.19
pld_dsgnmgr M1_5.19
pld_dve M1_5.19
pld_edif2sim M1_5.19
pld_men2edif M1_5.19
pld_xnf2sim M1_5.19
pld_sg M1_5.19

Did the update not get installed or did I intall the wrong update?

Solution

No. After installing M1.5i this versioning for pld_* is correct. Other Xilinx
programs will show M1.5.25 (ie MAP, PAR), while the following will show M1.5.19:

pld_da
pld_dmgr
pld_quicksim
pld_edif2tim
pld_dsgnmgr
pld_dve
pld_edif2sim
pld_men2edif
pld_xnf2sim
pld_sg

This is correct and normal, and has occured since these above script files
did not need updating.
