When is the .Xilinx directory created?

Description

During installation, the .Xilinx directory is not created for licenses.

Is this an indication that the installation failed?

Is this expected behavior?

Solution

This is expected behavior.

The .Xilinx folder is created in the %HOMEDRIVE% or $HOME directory.

This folder is not created at the time of installation, it is only created when using the "Copy License" function of XLCM, or when the tool uses a license.

When the tool requests a license, a cache is created in the .Xilinx folder.
