PROcapture: Plotting to PostScript file doesn't work, possible cause (SHARE.EXE)


After you have selected Plot Device=PS in the Print Setup window, selected
Print to File in the File Print window and hit OK, file <design>.01p should
be created in the project directory. In some cases, no file will be created
and no message or warning will be displayed. This has been traced to the use
of the DOS program SHARE.


Comment out the share in the autoexec.bat, and install vshare.386.
This is available on the Xilinx BBS and FTP sites as WW1000.EXE.
On the BBS it is within the Software Help -> XACT-PC directory, and on the
FTP site, it is at http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/xact-pc.

To install this, place the vshare.386 file in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM and add one
line to the [386Enh] section of the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.INI file:
