General Description: When I install update files using the Install Cores Tool, the installer takes several hours or appears to hang.
For a 50 MB zip file, the installer should take less than ten minutes to complete on a Solaris machine. The installer should take the same amount of time to complete on a PC (hard drive). However, it takes a much longer time for a PC installation to a network location. The installation eventually finishes, but it takes several hours to unzip all of the files.
If certain virus scan applications are running on your PC, the installer can take an unreasonably long time. Disabling the virus scan on your system should allow the installer to run at normal speed.
The Updates Installer has been disabled for the remainder of the 5.x release. A problem found late in the 5.2i release allowed the installation of IP updates that were incompatible with the installed Xilinx software version.
