4.1i Project Navigator -- Why does FPGA Express synthesis fail with a Constraint Editor GUID error on a network install?

Description

Description:

After doing a network install, following the Network Install instructions in the install guide, the customer cannot synthesize with FPGA Express from the client machine.

1. When inside ISE, synthesis fails with the following error:

---------------------------------------------------------------

Starting: 'expresscli hardctrl.epfx'

Unable to read Constraint Editor GUID

Done: failed with exit code: 0001

---------------------------------------------------------------

2. When you try to run FPGA Express Stand alone, the following error appears, and FPGA Express will not start:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

System registry is not initialized - please run FPGA Express setup.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solution

CR filed for Network install.

This is NOT an issue with local installs. If a customer is getting this error on a local install, make sure that they have correctly installed the Service Pack.

This means that they must install both the Xilinx Service Pack and the FPGA Express update.
