    I/O Designer will not update


      I'm running into a problem with I/O designer, where it will not update the FPGA libraries via the Internet. I've had this issue since the last time I used IOD back in February, and I ended up with errors on some pin labels, because I chose to ignore the fact the IOD was not updating from the internet, so I don't want to make that mistake again. Here is the error log of the updater:


      Current version of I/O Designer IOD9.5

      Current version of library 095_000_001_010

      Using server http://supportnet.mentor.com/productupdates/

      Downloading manifest file http://supportnet.mentor.com/productupdates/public/iod/libraries/IOD9.5/update.xml

      Manifest file : http://supportnet.mentor.com/productupdates/public/iod/libraries/IOD9.5/update.xml was downloaded successfully to path C:\Users\TDesmit\iod_updates\update.xml

      This is an older version of IOD, but I don't have a choice on that; since IOD is now bundled with Expedition Enterprise, and we cannot move to vX because it breaks all our automation, I'm stuck with this version. If I can't get this version to update, I guess I will not be able to use it, because after getting burned in February, I won't let that happen again.


      I'm trying to use IOD in "librarian" mode, to generate some generic symbols for a 896-pin Altera part.


      Anyone have any ideas on why this is refusing to update?
