General Decription : During the installation of the V2 CD,
I receive the following error :
Xilinx 3.2.03i Setup
Error: Your fileset.txt contains an invalid Registration ID.
What can I do to fix this problem?
This typically happens because users installed the tools
in a different order. Typically, this order is:
Implementation Tools -> Documentation
Howver, if you install
Documentation -> Implementation Tools
There is a problem with the installer in that it will not correctly write
the Regisrtation ID into the fileset.txt (this is a log of install
To correct this option, simply open up the fileset.txt with a
text editor. It is located inthe root of the XILINX directory.
Add the line
where xxxxxxxxxxxx = your 12 digit Registration ID.
Be sure to remove any spaces before or after the "=".
If after reboot the changes made above are not reflected
in the fileset.txt, then the text editor was prevented from saving
the file. Be sure to exit the install program and any other open
windows to be sure fileset.txt is not in use. You can also

select "Properties". If it is listed as "read only", un-check that
If the Registration ID is already there and correct, check to see if there is 2.1i or
previous version information inside the file (at the top). If there is, delete all entries
except the 3.1i ones, and try the install again.
If the fileset.txt has no mention of the 2.1i tools, then it could be possible that your
XILINX environment variable is set incorrectly. Please verify it is set to a location
that does contain a fileset.txt that has a valid Registration ID in it.
