XABEL-CPLD - Installing XABEL-CPLD Software Over A Network

Description

Keywords: XABEL-CPLD, network, CPLD, software

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In order to install and run the XABEL-CPLD V6.0.0 software onto a network
drive, you need to perform the following steps:

Solution

The following assumptions will be made:

C: is the local hard drive where C:\Windows resides
D: is the CDROM mounted Drive with the XABEL-CPLD V6.0.0 CD.
N: is the Network Drive where the Software is to be installed.

Step 1:
From a PC that has write permissions to the network drive, run D:\setup. In the
XABEL-CPLD setup program, change the destination directory to point to a
directory on the network drive (e.g., N:\XABEL6). Then, finish running the setup
program on this PC.

(At this time you should be able to run the XABEL-CPLD software on the PC from
which you executed the setup program.)

In order to enable remote PCs to run the XABEL-CPLD software from the N:\XABEL6
directory, follow the instructions below.

Step 2:
Install Win32s by executing the setup program

D:\win32s\disk1\setup

Step 3:
If the following directories don't exist on the remote PC, create them:

mkdir C:\windows\asym
mkdir C:\windows\asym\runtime


Step 4:
Copy the following files from the setup PC (i.e., the PC that was used to
install to the network) to the respective directories on other remote PCs.

C:\windows\asym.ini
C:\windows\system\ctl3d.dll
C:\windows\system\diohelp.dll
C:\windows\system\hyprview.dll
C:\windows\system\ctl3dv2.dll
C:\windows\system\hyprfind.dll
C:\windows\system\hyprview.hlp
C:\windows\asym\runtime\*.* (Copy all files in this directory)

Step 5:
Next, you need to modify the user registration for the XABEL6 software. Bring
the file N:\XABEL6\INSTALL\XABEL.REG up in Notepad, and verify that the
paths in this file are correct. If the Fitter is installed on a different drive, such as
C:\XACT, modify the paths below that state

N:\XACT\ to C:\XACT\.

Sample: xabel.reg file:

REGEDIT
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DIOEDA\Products\XABEL6 = Xilinx ABEL
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DIOEDA\Products\XABEL6\strings\ProductTitle = XABEL-CPLD
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DIOEDA\Products\XABEL6\strings\ProductPrefix = ABL
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DIOEDA\Products\XABEL6\strings\ProductVersion = 6.10
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DIOEDA\Products\XABEL6\strings\ProductName = XABEL-CPLD
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DIOEDA\Products\XABEL6\paths\Bin = N:\xabel6
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DIOEDA\Products\XABEL6\paths\XKEY = N:\xabel6\License
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DIOEDA\Products\XABEL6\paths\XACT = N:\XACT\
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DIOEDA\Products\XABEL6\paths\XACTpath = N:\XACT\
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DIOEDA\Products\XABEL6\paths\Tutorial = N:\xabel6\Tutorial

Step 6:
After verifying the xabel.reg file, go to Program Manager and select File->Run for the
xabel.reg file in order to update registration information.

Step 7:
You have now fully installed the software so that it can run on the remote PC from the
network drive. Now, create the program group and program icons:

From the program manager, select "Create A New Program Group"

Example group name: XABEL-CPLD NETWORK

Create The Following Program Items (Icons)

1. Description: XABEL-CPLD
Command Line: N:\XABEL6\XABEL.EXE
Working Directory: N:\XABEL6
Shortcut Key: None

2.Description: ReadMe
Command Line: Write.exe N:\xabel6\readme.wri
Working Directory: N:\XABEL6
Shortcut Key: None
