4.1i Foundation ISE - "ERROR: This design does not contain an entity named xxx...Done: failed with exit code: 0001."

Description

Keywords: Done, 0001, Foundation, ISE, exit, code

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I try to create a schematic symbol from a VHDL module in Foundation ISE, the following error appears in the auto-make log file:

"ERROR: This design does not contain an entity named xxx...
vhdtdtfi completed with errors...
Done: failed with exit code: 0001."

However, I find the entity in the design, and it has no syntax errors.

Solution

This error generally occurs when a VHDL file from an older project is used.

Create a new, blank VHDL source from the ISE Project Navigator, then copy and paste the source from the old VHDL file. The error should not occur when you create a schematic symbol from this new VHDL file.
