AR# 8237: 4.1i Install - CAE Libraries installation completes very slowly or hangs.
4.1i Install - CAE Libraries installation completes very slowly or hangs.
Keywords: install, installation, CAE, 3.1i, Mentor, slow, hang
General Description: The CAE installation seems to hang or completes very slowly.
The CAE installation delivers an extremely large number of files, depending upon the installation options. Specifically, the Mentor and Cadence interfaces require in excess of 50,000 files to be delivered to the user's disk. Because of this, the installation can take a long time (several hours). We suggest that you close all background tasks before beginning the installation, and start the installation at the end of the day so that it may run overnight.
The installation requires some final post-processing to restore the file permissions. In the terminal that was used to launch the installation, you will see the following:
Please wait while the Install restores permissions to files... [This may take a few minutes...]
Please wait until this operation is complete. Depending upon the number of files that were installed, and on the machine and/or network, changing all permissions can take several hours.
The CAE Installer can also hang while installing the Mentor or Cadence Libraries. If you are experiencing this, please see (Xilinx Answer 12565).
