System Generator for DSP - I run the System Generator token "generate" a second time, but CORE Generator will not overwrite existing files


General Description: 

I am running "Generate" for the second time from the System Generator token. When CORE Generator runs, errors report that existing files will not be overwritten. How can I fix this?


By default, CORE Generator will not overwrite existing core files. If you wish to re-generate core files from System Generator, change the default option in the CORE Generator preferences through the following steps: 


1. Start the CORE Generator. 

2. Go to Project->Preferences. 

3. Select the option to "Automatically overwrite output files." 


NOTE: This option will cause the stand-alone CORE Generator tool (as well as the CORE Generator invoked from System Generator) to automatically overwrite output files.
