Too long pathways on Windows - Implementing Example Design

Jump to solution

Dear all,

Our customer has a problem:

"

We can not implement the example design of display port subsystem for the long-standing problem of too long pathways on windows ....
I am attaching the error (below).

We also looked at AR suggested but there was nothing particularly useful or that we had not already tried ...
The only thing not proven is the sw on Linux ...
Do you chance to try this example on linux?
if it works we try to equip ourselves to find a linux machine and install everything.

This is the example associated with DP RX Subsystem 2.1.

Obviously if you have any other proof to be taken to overcome the problem .... we are grateful.

 

[Common 17-680] Path length exceeds 260-Byte maximum allowed by Windows:

f:/y/dp_rx_subsystem_0_ex/dp_rx_subsystem_0_ex.srcs/sources_1/bd/dp_rx_subsystem_0_design_synth/ip/dp_rx_subsystem_0_design_synth_vid_phy_controller_0_0/ip_0/dp_rx_subsystem_0_design_synth_vid_phy_controller_0_0_gtwrapper/example_design/dp_rx_subsystem_0_design_synth_vid_phy_controller_0_0_gtwrapper_tx_startup_fsm.vhd
Please consider using the OS subst command to shorten the path length by mapping part of the path to a virtual drive letter. See Answer Record AR52787 for more information.
Resolution: In Windows 7 or later, the mklink command can also be used to create a symbolic link and shorten the path.

Can you help me about this issue ?

Hello @andreac_avnet,

 

As watari mentioned, Plan B is a solution on windows OS.

 

Here is a procedure.

- Generate an example design on windows, but the error happens.

- “imports” folder is created and there is tcl.

- Get the Tcl corresponding to the design you want to build and modify it to shorten the name of the BD

- Create a new project on a short path.

- Source the Tcl script

Hi @andreac_avnet

 

Here are solution about your question.

 

Plan A)

Change OS from Windows OS to Linux OS

 

Plan B)

Modify BD name to too short.

 

Plan C)

Unlock path length limitation by changing registry value by registry editor.

However, it is a little dangerous if you are not expert.

 

BTW, doe to this issue, some example design don't support Windows OS.
