4.1i ISE - Project Navigator attempts to checkout a Synplify Pro license when synthesizing with Synplfy.


Keywords: Project Navigator, license, Synplify, check-out, synplifypro

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I synthesize with Synplify, Project Navigator attempts to also check out a Synplify Pro license.

As a result, the following errors appear in the ISE Auto-Make Log File:

This occurs because of a problem with what the script keyed off. The script has been updated to handle this condition, and the problem is fixed in the latest 4.1i Service Pack, which is available at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 4.1i Service Pack 3
