Install - Command prompt create shortcuts using UNC path

Description

I ran the installer on my Windows 7 machine, but when I try to run the command prompt from the Xilinx's Start Menu, I get an error stating "CMD does not support UNC paths as current directories."

How do I workaround this issue?

Solution

Follow these steps to fix your Start Menu shortcuts:

1. Set a drive letter for your user by right clicking on My Computer -> Map Network Drive...
2. Launch the command windows with administrative account (right click Command Prompt and Run as Adminstrator).
3. Map the drive in the command shell with the same drive letter as you set before (net use <DRIVE_LETTER> <DRIVE_UNC_PATH>)
4. Launch the shortcustSetup.bat in ISE_DS\common\bin\nt in the same Command Prompt shell.
