XACT Timing Analyzer: Cannot open file C:\\con<num>.<num> (Win95 only)

Description

When running Timing Analyzer (TA) in Win95, the following messages are reported:

"Cannot open file C:\\con960.960" <OK>

"Unable to initialize console.

Close other applications and restart Timing Analyser." <OK>

These messages will pop up with various numbers in the filename con<num>.<num>.

CAUSE:

TA is looking for a temporary file in the C:\\ directory. It looks in

C:\\ because TEMP=C:\ in the AUTOEXEC.BAT. TA will work properly in

Win3.11 even when TEMP=C:\, but Win95 is more particular.

Solution

Create a temporary directory and set the temp variable in the

AUTOEXEC.BAT to point to that directory.

TEMP=C:\TEMP
