Error could not locate C:\Xilinx\xic\bin\xic.bat.

Jump to solution

I've already tried reinstalling it twice. And I still receive the same error. How can I fix this issue? Someone please help!

I have not seen this behavior, but it does spark a couple of thoughts...

Since the path exists (and I suppose other files are present in that directory)... I would conclude one of two things...

The install did not put it there OR it was removed.... For the latter, it has been reported from time to time, that the xic.exe has been mistaken as a virus by some versions of some virus detectors... I 'suppose' the xic.bat 'theorectically' could also be errantly could be quarantined (thus removed).

If you could check you virus log, and see if that has mistaken it as a virus, that would be a good first step.

It has been suggested by others to update your virus scanner, then reinstall. (I would suggest, to be very sure, you could disable the virus scanner temporarily during the install, then confirm the xic.bat exists OR doesn't, before reenabling).

If 'none' of the other files are in that path, it may suggest something else, such as a bad install package or insufficient privilege.

Hope that helps

If so, mark as solution accepted. Kudos also welcomed. :-)

A couple of questions...

1) Does that path it says it cannot find actually exist?

2) During the install, did you install into default location or somewhere else?

I look in the actual directory it says and I don't see a xic.bat file anywhere. I've install this same program on another computer and don't have this issue. What could be wrong?

 

I installed in the default location, yes.

Hello :) I will try disabling the anti-virus and trying again.

Will let you know the results! And will be sure to give you kudos.

It worked! Disabling anti-virus was the solution. The xic.bat file is there and isn't disappearing and I am no longer receiving the error even after restart. :)

 

Thanks so much!
