***** Do not install this patch if you are using 1.5i. It will corrupt your install. *****
(As a precautionary measure, always make a back-up of the files that you are going to replace.)
First, two files in your existing Foundation install area must be modified. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the FNDTN\SYNTH\LIB directory. Select "XC9500.pts," right-click, and select "Properties". Uncheck the "Read-only" box. Do the same for the XC9500XL.pts file.
Copy the file "cpld_nt3_f15.zip" into a temporary directory. Unzip the file into the $XILINX directory (usually 'C:\FNDTN') with the "Use Folder Names" box checked if using WinZip; if using PKUNZIP, use the "-d" switch.
Included Files: The following files are included, with appropriate directory information.
