2013.1 CSE Server - Cannot run vcse_server with UNC path

Description

Currently, an attempt to run the vcse_server.exe executable from command prompt fails if the supplied path follows UNC and does not include a letter-mapped drive.

For example, the following command will fail:

\\xxx\xxx\nt64\Vivado\2013.1\bin\vcse_server

In this situation, an error similar to the following appears when attempting to open a cable connection:

"ERROR: [Labtools 27-147] cse_server: Could not open plug-in of the type: xilinx_platformusb. Please check to make sure the correct plug-in for this type is properly installed."

Solution

Instead of the path format used above, use a path that includes a drive letter.

For example:
D:\xxx\xxx\nt64\Vivado\2013.1\bin\vcse_server
