5.1sp3 iMPACT - An error reports: "Exception iMPACT:PFFChain.c.175:1:8:1 - ACD entry not found."


General Description: 

When I create a PROM file for a Virtex-II device, iMPACT reports the following Fatal errors: 


"Exception iMPACT:PFFChain.c.175:1:8:1 - ACD entry not found." 


"WARNING:Portability:111 - Message file "GuiUtilities.msg" wasn't found" 


"Fatal_Error:GuiUtilities:Winapp --..."


This problem is fixed in the latest 5.2i Service Pack, available at: 

The first service pack containing the fix is 5.2i Service Pack 1. 


The PROM file is still created regardless of these errors, and this PROM file may be used. 


This problem is only seen when the "Auto-select PROM" option is used. If you manually specify a PROM, iMPACT will not report these errors.
