2. Make sure the PATH and the XACT variables are specified properly in the autoexec.bat file. Example: SET PATH=<path_to_xabel_cpld>;<any_other_paths>.... SET XACT=<path_to_xabel_cpld>;<any_other_paths>.. where <path_to_xabel_cpld> is the location of the XABEL-CPLD software. By default, this will be c:\xabel6\xact9k
Verify that this is true by typing 'set' from DOS prompt.
3. Look at the the log files in the project directory to find out what went wrong. These log files are: automake.log, design_name.log and tsprep.log
