6.1i Project Navigator - "Error Portability: 41 - The specified Xilinx directory does not contain a data directory as required..."

Description


General Description:

When I attempt to invoke an ISE application, the following error occurs:



"Error Portability:41 - The specified Xilinx directory does not contain a data directory as required. Error:C:/ Xilinx:/"



Device programming works, but WebPACK and Project Navigator do not.

Solution


This error generally occurs when white spaces exist in the bin/nt path.



For example:



C:/program files/Webpack/bin/nt.



The space between "program" and "files" causes the above portability error. To avoid this problem, install ISE in a directory that does not contain any spaces between the characters.
