General Description
There is a problem installing Foundation Design Entry update files from
F1.5i Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 on to F1.5J (Japaneser version of F1.5)

F1.5i (English version) and F1.5J (Japanese version) are equivalent softwares,
and F1.5i Service Pack 1 or 2 can be used with F1.5J.
However, there will be a problem installing design_entry_upd.exe
on to F1.5J. You may get a message " Cannot Find Program Location "
and installer will terminate.

There shouldn't be any problem installing CPLD, Coregen, or Design
Implementation updates from this service pack.

Solution

Workaround is to download following file:

http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/M1.5i_updates/japan_sp1_regupd.zip

Unzip this file in a temp directory on your local drive.
Then double click on the executable called J_sp1_regupd.exe.

This will update your Window's registry and now you should not have
any problem installing Service Pack on to your F1.5J (Japanese Version.).
