9.2 ChipScope Pro Serial IO Toolkit - "ERROR: You must set the $CHIPSCOPE environment variable to point at the chipscope installation directory"

Description

When I open the Serial IO Toolkit on Solaris, the following error occurs: 

 

"ERROR: You must set the $CHIPSCOPE environment variable to point at the chipscope installation directory"

Solution

This error occurs when the $CHIPSCOPE environment variable is not set.  

 

To work around this issue, you can do one of two things: 

- Manually set the $CHIPSCOPE environment variable, or  

- Run the "settings.csh" script in the ChipScope install directory.
