After creating a new design in the M1 Design Manager and selecting Implement->Run, a message box may appear with the following error message:
"illegal command line for invoking the Flow Engine"
Beginning with the 1.5 release, this msg has been made obsolete and replaced with a more comprehensible one.
This error is produced if the input design file is located in a directory that has spaces in the directory path name. The M1 software will accept long file names (greater than 8 characters), but will not accept spaces in directory names, as the software interprets the single path to be multiple arguments.
Remove any spaces in the directory structure. Using underscores is one alternative.
should be changed to
NOTE: Starting with the M1.5 release, the Design Manager will automatically prompt the user with a notification if and when spaces are detected in the path. The following message will appear when opening an existing project as well when a new project is created:
"The entry D:\path\to\intro lab\introlab.xpj contains spaces. Currently spaces are not supported."
