2014.1 Vivado - tclstore does not properly get git's http.proxy global variable on Windows


When I try to update the catalog through Tclstore, errors similar to the following are displayed and echoed to the vivado.log file:
C:/Xilinx/Vivado/2014.1/tps/win64/git-1.8.3/bin/git.exe remote -v add -f -t master -m master origin http://github.com/Xilinx/XilinxTclStore.git
Updating origin
fatal: unable to access 'http://github.com/Xilinx/XilinxTclStore.git/': Failed connect to github.com:80; No error
error: Could not fetch origin
fatal: remote origin already exists.
ERROR: [Common 17-665] Failed to execute 'C:/Xilinx/Vivado/2014.1/tps/win64/git-1.8.3/bin/git.exe remote -v add -f -t master -m master origin http://github.com/Xilinx/XilinxTclStore.git'.


In Vivado 2014.1, the workaround is to manually set http.proxy using git config.

For example:

git config -global http.proxy 

Note: The IP address and proxy number will be specific for each company.

This issue will be fixed in Vivado release 2014.2.
