AR# 1181: Proflow : DOS error #53 : Can't open file.
Proflow : DOS error #53 : Can't open file.
Upon entering ProFlow you may receive the following error :
DOS error #53 : Can't open file.
One possible cause of this error is a corrupted or incorrect project.lst file. Open the <proser>\standard\vf\project.lst with a text editor and examine the directory paths to be sure they exist. The project.lst file should look like the following :
2 c:\designs\mydesign <---- Verify all directories exist c:\others\urdesign <---- and not on a network. c:\demos\pci <----
Verify that the WDIR variable in the c:\autoexec.bat file is set correctly. It should point to the <proser>/standard directory. ***Also be sure there are no spaces after the path.*** This is also known to cause this error.
