4.1i ISE - Setting a custom .do file using "browse" results in a ModelSim error

Description

Keywords: browse, DO, ModelSim, forward slash, cannot open macro file

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I set a custom .do file using "browse" (giving the full path with backslashes), the following ModelSim error is reported:

"# ERROR: Cannot open macro file: I:\worksolns irtexprojnavddr_vhd_200modelsim.do. Paths should use forward slash or surrounded by {} so will not be processed as string."

Solution

This problem is fixed in the latest 4.1i Service Pack, available at:

The first service pack containing the fix is 4.1i Service Pack 1.
