AR# 8159: 3.1i ISE and Foundation Install - If the README file is closed after the Synopsys installation, the ISE Install is aborted.
3.1i ISE and Foundation Install - If the README file is closed after the Synopsys installation, the ISE Install is aborted.
Keywords: 3.1i, install, installation, ISE, Synopsys, Readme, abort, exit
General Description: At the end of the Foundation/Foundation ISE 3.1i Synopsys installation, the user is prompted with the option of viewing the Synopsys README file. If this file is viewed, and the user dismisses the Synopsys InstallShield Installation using the "X" in the corner of the box, a dialog box asking "Do you want to exit Install?" appears.
If the user does exit, the installation will not complete successfully.
Although this dialog box seems to indicate that the installation is complete and the installer can be safely exited, this is not the case. If the installation is exited at this point, the post-processing steps are not complete, and Synopsys will not work within the ISE tools.
Therefore, if the user selects "Yes," the remainder or the Foundation install will not complete successfully, and will need to be re-run.
