4.1i Design Manager - Revengine: Failed to update the system registry. Please try using REGEDIT
Keywords: Design Manager, revengine, windows 2000, win2k, 2k, regedit
When the Flow Engine is invoked, the following message may appear:
Revengine: Failed to update the system registry. Please try using REGEDIT. [ OK ]
If the Revengine was installed correctly, then this error can be safely ignored. Click OK on this message. The Flow Engine should come up as normal.
If the FlowEngine doesn't come up normally, that means that the revengine wasn't installed correctly. It needs to write to the registry in order to register the OLE client. In this case, someone with registry access needs to register the revengine.
How to register the Revengine: Find revengine.exe withing your Xilinx installation. Once found, double click on it to register the executable.
Now reinvoke the Flow Engine to continue running the tools.
