**Obsolete** ChipScope - ChipScope Core Inserter hangs after "Delete Implementation Data" is selected in ISE

Description

Keywords: ChipScope, Core Inserter, hang

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
A feature in ISE called "Delete Implementation Data" clears out all files that ISE has created when compiling designs. Among other things, this process removes all .ngo files, as NGDBuild should be the only program creating these files.

However, it removes "<design>_signalbrowser.ngo", which is created by the ChipScope Core Inserter. When I reopen the Core Inserter project (after synthesis has regenerated the EDIF file) and go to the ILA tab, Core Inserter hangs because it cannot find the "signalbrowser.ngo" file.

Solution

To avoid this problem, rerun the translate step in ISE before you open the Core Inserter project again.
