4.2i Foundation - "Error: <filename>.vhd line xxx. No selected element named <package name> is defined for this prefix. (VSS-573)"

Description

Keywords: Foundation, Aldec, FPGA, Express, no selected element, package, VHDL

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Foundation Project Manager reports the following error message after I add a package to a design:

"Error: <filename>.vhd line xxx. No selected element named <package name> is defined for this prefix. (VSS-573)"

Solution

To avoid this error, open FPGA Express in stand-alone mode, add the package above the files that are including the package, and re-synthesize.

You can now open the project in Foundation Aldec and synthesize it.
