3.1i Install - Can Microsoft's SMS software be used to automatically deploy Xilinx software?


Keywords: Install, SMS, Microsoft, deploy

Urgency: Standard

General Description: Microsoft's SMS software allows users to set up
packages that can be automatically deployed to users over a network.
Can Xilinx software be included in an SMS packet?


The SMS packager currently has a limit in the number files it can handle.
The 3.1i Xilinx software exceeds this limit; therefore, SMS will have
problems in delivering this software.

NOTE: Although this is not a tested flow by Xilinx, the Xilinx installer should
not have any problems with this type of deployment. If this is done, SMS will
crash at the end of the Xilinx installation. This is a problem with the SMS tool,
not with the Xilinx installer.
