Bad command or file name
"vllink done"

Solution

The error message is referring to the file, libvwlne.dll,
located in the <xilinx>/viewlog/bin/nt directory.

Ther problem is seen if you have not installed the Xilinx
Implementation tools from the Alliance pacakge (libvwlne.dll
is automatically installed during this process).

There may have been a problem in the M1.4 Alliance install
in which this dynamic link library did not get installed.
If you do not already have this file installed in the
specified location, you will need to copy it from the
viewlog/bin/nt directory on the Alliance CD to your
Xilinx directory.

If you continue to have problems, copy the entire "viewlog"
folder from the Alliance CD to your Xilinx directory,
overwriting the existing files.
