Documentation Navigator - Shared Downloads directory adds a directory

Description

The shared downloads directory in Documentation Navigator is being set incorrectly.
 
In settings I have set the directory to G:\XilinxDocs
 
However, when I then download, the directory is set to G:\XilinxDocs\<username>

Solution

This is expected behavior for DocNav.
 
This is to keep track of which user downloaded the documents as this is a shared location.

In the Shared Download Directory, separate XML files are created for each user who downloads documents.
 
  1. These XML files record the download data for a single user and point to files located in a user-specific directory in the Shared Download Directory.
     
  2. Other users read this data to determine what downloaded documents are available.

For more information please refer to page 15 of the Xilinx Documentation Navigator User Guide.
