Problems after installing Xact 6.0.1 (Win32s v1.30a) - OE20.EXE, unexpected DOS error 21


Win32s 1.30a, which is installed with the Xilinx XACTstep 6.0.1 software,
has compatibility problems with some Windows configurations.

Symptoms of an incompatible Windows configuration include:

1. In the Foundation Schematic Editor, you cannot push into an HDL-based
2. The XACTstep Design Manager reports an error regarding OE20.EXE.
3. Any win32s program (such as Freecell) reports "Unexpected DOS error 21"
or "Insufficient memory to run program".


Install win32s v1.30c. This version of win32s is available on
the anonymous FTP at:
http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/foundation, file is called: w32s13c.zip

The file W32S13C.ZIP is a 3MB file and contains
the floppy disk structure. Unzip this file using PKUNZIP -D.

First, remove win32s v1.30 from the PC. Xilinx provides a
batch file on the XACTstep 5.2.1/6.0.1 CD to do this (\XBBS\UTILS\RMWIN32S.BAT).

Exit Windows and run the batch file. Follow the instructions
on the screen to remove win32s from your system.

Start Windows. Select File->Run and run <path to unzipped files>\DISK1\SETUP.
