4.1i Foundation Install - "Error: XIE32.exe is unable to locate libbasxi.dll." (Windows NT/2000)


Keywords: install, 3.1i, NT, XIE32, libbasxi, dll, Windows, 2000

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I install the Xilinx Foundation software, the following error is reported near the end of the installation:

"Error: XIE32.exe is unable to locate libbasxi.dll:"


The original installation contained a conflict that did not allow it to complete properly. To work around this issue, follow these steps:

1. Uninstall the software and delete the Xilinx directories.
2. If you have the FLEXlm License Server on your machine, stop it and reboot the system. To stop the server, enter the following in a command prompt:

lmutil lmdown -c <location to the license.dat> (For example: lmutil lmdown -c c:\flexlm\license.dat)

3. Perform a fresh installation; this should prevent the error from occurring.
