14.5 EDK/SDK - Tools crash when launching bootgen from command line with SDK standalone install


When trying to call the bootgen tool (zynq_flash) from the command line, an error pops up with the message below:

This application has failed to start because the libCseFlash.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem

How can I address this issue?


To fix this issue, open the .settings32.bat in the SDK install directory, and append the path to include the library where this DLL can be found.

set PATH=%XIL_SCRIPT_LOC%\bin\nt;%XIL_SCRIPT_LOC\lin\nt;.....

Once this is done, re-run the .settings32.bat and then test by running the zynq_flash -help command to see if the error is gone.
