Why does aocl install and aocl uninstall fail in Intel FPGA SDK for OpenCL17.1?

Description

In the Intel™ FPGA SDK for OpenCL® version 17.1, you may see following error message while running “aocl install <bsp_path>” and “aocl uninstall <bsp_path>”:

“aocl install failing with message: " is not an object at <OpenCL SDK installation path>/share/lib/perl/acl/Command.pm line 1241, <F> line 68."

This error may not cause a failure to the flow in most cases. You can run “aocl diagnose” and verify that the diagnose passes for the installed board.

Workaround

To avoid this error, apply following changes to the <OpenCL SDK Installation Path>/share/lib/perl/acl/Command.pm: lines 110 &111

Line 110: Replace isWindowsOS() ->acl::Env::is_windows()

Line 111: Replace mysystem_full({}, @cmd); -> system(@cmd);

This problem will be fixed in the future release of the Intel FPGA SDK for OpenCL software.
