Foundation F1.x, XABEL: DIOEDA errors involving abl2edif
Keywords: ABEL, abl2edif, DIOEDA, hkey, F1 Urgency: Standard
When trying to synthesize ABEL code, Foundation will sometimes give an error of the form:
HDE: XABEL - XABEL is not installed (registry key DIOEDA/Products/XABELM1/paths/Bin does not point to abl2edif.exe)
This particular error is a result of incorrect registry. The path to abl2edif.exe must be corrected.
1) Make sure that abl2edif is installed in the Xilinx\bin\nt directory.
2) Go to Start -> Run and type regedit in the box. Click OK.
3) Under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT follow this path: DIOEDA/Products/XABELM1/paths/Bin
4) Edit the registry entry to match the path to where abl2edif can be found on your system. By default, it is under C:\Xilinx\bin\nt. Make sure that this information is correct. Exit the registry editor.
