Design Manager reports: xmake is inaccessable

Description

When running translate from design manager a message pops up saying:

xmake is inaccessable.

Xmake may work from a dos shell

Solution

Make sure that the xact directory is pointed to by both the path and the xact environment variable. Make sure this information is in the autoexec.bat file.

If using a network program called syscom to add mapped network locations to path statment, xmake or other xilinx tools will run from a dos shell without
problem, but when they were called from Design manager they will not be found.
Typing "set" from a dos shell will show the correct path and xact environment variables. Adding the xact directory to the path in the autoexec.bat solves the problem.
