Selecting the Browse button within the "Open Project" or "New Project" dialog on a Workstation results in the Design Manger hanging (or taking an extremely long time to refresh itself)
Possible workarounds are described in the resolutions below:
The reason the tool hangs is still under investigation.
1. Shut down (kill - 9 <process_id>) the Design Manger 2. Set the following environment variable:
setenv XIL_GUI_USEMOTIFFILEDLG 1
This variable instructs DM to invoke a Motif-style browse dialog box instead of the standard Windows-style dialog. This is an issue with the Bristol Tools (used to port GUI's onto the Workstation Platforms).
Other Workarounds: -------------------------------
1) If the automounter is running for /home (i.e., on Solaris if there's an auto.home map) and if the map for /home contains a wild card entry, then this problem can arise.
Check out your auto.home map file. If a "*" appears at the end of this file, get rid of it. Save, then reattempt the steps above.
2) Create a dummy "desktop.ini" file in your home directory (i.e. - home/john/desktop.ini). Reopen DM and attempt the above steps once again.
