Project archiving fails with non-ASCII character in user name

Jump to solution

hi,

dear forum members,

 

I wanted to bring your attention to a longtime bug, that still has not been resolved.

Info:

- Vivado version 2015.4.1

- Operating System Windows 7 x64

- My name has an accented character in it, so my user files are at C:\Users\<My Name>.<My Domain>

- Xilinx is installed at D:\Xilinx

 

When trying to archive the project, Vivado treats this character as <CR> <LF>, so I have to save the archive outside of my user account.

 

Workaround: none

 

I wonder whether you even test your software...  Why don't you have a repository for bug reports, with feedback from your developers? A user's forum is way too unstructured for proper softwaste development. (that wasn't a typo)

Thanks Geoff, that could work. I will experiment with adding SUBST and un-SUBST to the Vivado batch file.

Had a similar issue with another tool.   I used the DOS "SUBST" command to create an alias. 

 

SUBST Z:\  C:\blah\blah\blah\............................\project

 

The tool didn't deal with spaces,characters in path names, so we aliased the long and complicated path to Z:.

 

From what I could tell, it operated reliably ike a normal drive, and showed in window explorer normally, etc...
