5.1i Project Navigator - "Sources have the same file prefix" message occurs when a .tbw and source file have the same name

Description

Keywords: sources, prefix, TBW

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When a source file and a testbench waveform have the same file prefix name, the following message occurs:

"Sources have the same file prefix."

This message is reported after I create the .tbw and exit HDL Bencher, and appears again each time the project is loaded.

Solution

This occurs because the hierarchy may be corrupted by a corruption to the project.jhd file. To avoid this, create the testbench with a name different than the source.
