10.1 ABEL - Compiling an ABEL module in Project Navigator fails with the following message: "pifg_xa...Done: failed with exit code: 0002"


When I compile an ABEL module in Project Navigator, the process fails and a message similar to the following appears:

In ISE 9.2i and earlier

"pifg_xa Property Intermediate Form Generator, Build J.30

ISE Release 9.1i Copyright (c) 2006 Xilinx, Inc. All rights reserved.

Reading Open-ABEL 2 file test.bl1...

Done: failed with exit code: 0002."

In ISE 10.1

Process "Process Design Constraints" failed


This error occurs if set notation is used in a Xilinx Property statement.

For example, if you change the line:

Xilinx property 'pwr_mode=low b4..b0';


Xilinx property 'pwr_mode=low b4 b3 b2 b1b0';

the code will compile without error.
