Chipscope - Inserter will not launch

Description

When launching ChipScope Core inserter I see the following errors and the tool does not launch. Also there are no log files created.

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/xilinx/chipscope/inserter/InserterApp
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.xilinx.chipscope.inserter.InserterApp

Could not find the main class: com.xilinx.chipscope.inserter.InserterApp. Program will exit.


What causes this and how can I work around it?

Solution

This may be resolved with an uninstall and fresh reinstall in a separate directory. The issue is that the install is corrupted and hence the linker script cannot find the ChipScope executables. This is highlighted with this message -
