4.2i Foundation - What is the character hard limit on design names and project directory paths?

Description

Keywords: limit, design, path, name

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
What is the hard limit for characters in design names and project directory paths in Foundation Project Manager?

Solution

The hard limit for design names is 8 characters with a 3-character extension.

For example:
abcdefgh.exe

No spaces or special characters may be used, and all characters must be A through Z.

Currently, errors caused by long project directory paths are treated on a case-by-case basis. Xilinx recommends moving the design directory closer to a root-level directory. The general limit is not set by our tools and is dependent upon the operating system that is supporting the Xilinx software.
