4.1i Install - "ERROR: Portability - The specified xilinx directory does not contain a 'data' subdirectory, current setting is 'xxx'."

Description

Keywords: 4.1i, 4.2i, WebPACK, Xilinx, environment, variable, portability, install, directory

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I attempt to launch any 4.1i application after an installation, the following message appears:

"ERROR:Portability - The specified xilinx directory does not contain a 'data' subdirectory, current setting is 'C:\xxx'."

Solution

1

You may also need to change the XILINX environment variable to the correct directory and/or drive.

2

This error may occur because the XILINX environment variable has been altered during the installation procedure and is now pointing to the wrong directory and/or drive.

To avoid this problem, be sure that the location in which the Xilinx software is installed does not contain spaces in the name, (e.g., c:\program files\Xilinx).
