3.1i Install - Project Navigator fails to start; Windows ME fails to update environment variables.


Keywords: 3.1i, install, WinME, Windows ME, windows, ME, Millennium, Project Navigator

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
My installation was successful; however, programs such as Project Navigator are
failing to start.


On some Windows 98 and Windows ME systems, the installation is unable to properly set
the Xilinx environment variables; therefore, the user must manually edit the autoexec.bat
file to set the appropriate variables.

Select Start -> Run, and run 'sysedit'. This will bring up the System Configuration Editor.
Add these lines to your autoexec.bat file:

set XILINX = [path to xilinx directory]; e.g. set XILINX = C:\fndtn;
set PATH = %PATH%;%XILINX%\bin\nt;

The computer must then be rebooted for these changes to take effect.
