7.1i ISE - Project Navigator reports, "Unable to find myself in the CWD or the path, and I was not invoked with the full path C:\Xilinx\bin\nt\ise.exe"

Description

Keywords: CAD, variables, Windows, windows, X, ise.exe, _pn

When I attempt to invoke ISE on a Windows OS, I receive the following message:

"Unable to find myself in the CWD or the path, and I was not invoked with the full path C:\Xilinx\bin\nt\ise.exe."

Solution

Ensure that the environment variables are set properly.

For example:
set XILINX=C:\xilinx
set PATH=%XILINX%;%PATH%;

or

setenv XILINX /tools/FPGA/xilinx7
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH $XILINX/bin/sol
setenv XKEYSYMDB $XILINX/bin/sol/XKeysymDB
setenv PATH $XILINX/bin/sol:${PATH}

One common mistake is to separate environment variables with two semicolons (;;) or a semicolon and a space. Deleting the extra semicolon or space will solve this problem.
