F1.5, Install: How to add support for additional devices or families.
Keywords: Install, update, devices, families
After installing the F1.5 software, the user may wish to add additional devices or families to the current software install. What is the easiest way to do this without reinstalling the entire product?
It is possible to install just the device libraries for additional families or devices. Since the program executables have already been installed, it is not necessary to reinstall those.
* Invoke the SETUP program from the F1.5 Design Environment CD. * On the Select Software Components to Install page, deselect everything except "Design Entry Tools" and "Implementation Tools." * Click on Design Entry Tools, and hit Change. Select ONLY "Device Libraries." * Repeat the previous step for "Implementation Tools."
You must install Device Libraries for BOTH Design Entry Tools and Implementation Tools. This will give you both the front-end libraries for schematic and simulation, as well as the back-end personality modules for implementation.
* Continue with the install as usual, selecting the families and devices you desire.
