2.1i Install: How do I install 2.1i without corrupting my registry settings for 1.5i install?

Description

Keywords: 2.1i, 1.5i, registry, settings, install, both, version

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Users may want to have both 1.5i installed with 2.1i as they prepare for design
migrations, etc.

Solution

Solution:

Run through the installation of 2.1i. When you get to the window 'Select
Environment Settings' deselect the following settings:

Set/Update XILINX in the Registry
Set/Update PATH in the Registry
Initialize OLE Registry settings
Install driver for Parallel Cable III (you will have to choose on this one)
Install driver for MultiLinx cable (you will have to choose on this one)

This type of install will create a 'settings.bat' file that you will run in an
'MS-DOS' window. The settings will only be valid in that 'MS-DOS' window. You
can now call up any of the GUIs or command lines for 2.1i.
