V1.4 COREGEN, VIEWLOGIC: "The VLLINK.BAT file has a line that is longer than 254 characters."
Keywords: coregen, vllink.bat, path, 254
General Description: CORE Generator issues a warning: "The VLLINK.BAT file has a line that is longer than 254 characters. It may not execute properly on your machine."
This message applies only to Viewlogic users:
The VLLINK.BAT file is used to generate a Viewlogic Symbol and Simulation file for a CORE, and will not run properly if one of the command lines in this batch file is longer than 254 characters. Usually the problem is caused by long path names in the VLLINK.BAT batch file associated with a long path to the COREGen installation.
If you are designing with Viewlogic, you must re-install the CORE Generator in a directory "closer" to the root directory (embedded less deeply in your directory tree), and/or use shorter directory names to stay within the 254 character limit. (Note that the main command line in the VLLINK.BAT batch file references your install directory three times in one of its command lines.)
You can usually stay within this command line length limitation if the path to the COREGen install directory consists of no more than 28 characters, including '\' characters.
