Could not set the path for installing Xilinx ISE Design Suite

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I'm trying to install Xilinx ISE Design Suite on my computer running Ubuntu 16.04, but I cannot go farther than the "Select Destination Directory". Indeed, I would like to set this path to /opt/Xilinx, but the wizard tells me that I "

have entered one of the following characters in the program group folder name:
\/:*?"<>|
These characters are invalid for folder names. Please re-enter a valid folder name."

 

I really don't understand this error. I deleted the folder and redownloaded the TAR archive but it led to the same error. I downloaded the archive from here, extracted it, and ran

 

sudo ./xsetup

in the extracted folder.

 

 

Could anybody help me with this please ?

 

Kind regards,

 

Ava

 

PS: I really need Xilinx ISE rather than Vivado since I'd like to code on a Spartan 3 FPGA.

Hi @avazula

 

The issue here is the OS which you are using is officially not supported by ISE. 

 

Use supported OS based on the ISE versions which are mentioned in this Answer Record. 

https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/18419.html

 

In this way, you will overcome the unwanted and unknown errors.

Hi @hemangd,

 

Thanks for your answer. I had a look on your link, and as far as I understand, I can't install it on Windows 10 either? Unfortunately, these are the 2 OSs I have.

 

Kind regards,

Hi @avazula,

 

Still you can try workaround for installing ISE 14.7 with windows 10 professional addition based in below mentioned link. (Note: windows 10 should not upgraded with creators update.)

Hi @hemangd,

 

Thanks for the details. I installed a Red Hat system in a VM, I hope it'll be enough to run Xilinx on it. Otherwise, I'll try to install it on Win10 anyway.

 

Thanks again for your help,

 

Kind regards
