    55Most projects which use the WARP hardware will be assembled and generated in Xilinx Platform Studio (XPS), part of the Embedded Developer's Kit. We provide a number of files which make it easy to create projects for the WARP hardware. These files must be installed in the directories:
    66{{{
    7 C:\EDK_user_repository\WARP\boards\
    8 C:\EDK_user_repository\WARP\pcores\
    9 C:\EDK_user_repository\WARP\drivers\
     7C:\WARP_Repository\WARP\boards\
     8C:\WARP_Repository\WARP\pcores\
     9C:\WARP_Repository\WARP\drivers\
    1010}}}

    1212The best way to get these files is to use a Subversion client. See [wiki:repositoryAccess WARP Repository Access] for more information on getting & using Subversion.
