2.1i Install: Install is unable to create the destination directory.


Keywords: Install, destination, directory, create

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When running the 2.1i install program you are asked to select a destination directory.
The installer is only able to create 1 level of hierarchy when creating the destination directory.
So if the user's directory structure looks like:
And they select this destination directory:
In this case a simple mistake in xilinx != xlnx is really asking the installer to create both xlnx and

Create any necessary directories prior to running the install.

Only require the installer to create 1 level of hierarchy.
