AR# 890: In Windows 95, Prom File Formatter menus do not function correctly
In Windows 95, Prom File Formatter menus do not function correctly
The Prom File Formatter (PFF) has a Directories box on the right hand side of the window. This is where the user can select which directory he wishes to be in. In Win '95, this selection fails to work correctly in two ways.
1. Only the .bit files found upon entering PFF are displayed, regardless of the where in the directory structure you try to go. For example, if you change directories to go up a level, the same .bit files will continue to be displayed.
2. If you attempt to move from the directory that the PFF found the .bit files in, then you won't be able to use those files that it found originally.
If you are using PFF in Win '95, make sure that any .bit files you need are in the selected REV (revision) directory before you enter PFF from Design Manager.
If you need multiple different bit files, you will have to copy the required .bit files to this directory.
