XACT Workstation install: How to find a particular file on the Sun/HP 5.2.1 CD
Unlike the 5.2.1/6.0.1 XACT CD for the PC, the Workstation CD's files are compressed (.zip). If you require a single file or set of files, and do not wish to re-install, there is a simple way to determine which .zip file contains the desired file.
Among the several directories under the root is a HP7/install (for HP machines) and a SN2/install (for Sun Machines). In the /install directory of the desired platform, you will find several files with extension "da". There exists a .da file for each product:
This indicates the file 3030a.die exists in an archive called 3030aa_0.zip (append a _0.zip to the last name on the line). Most of the .zip archives exist in the /XACT directory, with the exception of DS391 (Viewlogic Interface), which is in /POWERVIE. If you cannot locate the filename you need in the .da file, then try "grep" on all the .da files.
If your workstation cannot handle .zip files, then the utility "unzip" is located in the /install directory.
