4.1i Project Navigator - When I open a testbench waveform, an error reports "Unable to open HDL source file <design>.VHF or <design>.VF"

Description

Keywords: VHF, waveform, delete, implemenation, flow

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I attempt to open a testbench waveform (.tbw) after running "Delete Implementation Data" or "Switching Design Flows", the following error is reported:

"ERROR - Unable to open HDL source file <design>.VHF or <design>.VF"

Solution

This error occurs because the HDL model has been deleted.

You can force the HDL model to be regenerated as follows:

- Right-click on "View VHDL/Verilog Functional Model" under "Design Entry Utilities" in Project Navigator.
- Select "Rerun".

This issue was fixed in the 5.1i software release.
