*Obsolete* 4.2i iMPACT - Attempting to perform an erase operation in File Generation Mode causes "FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:WinApp.c:570"

Description

Keywords: iMPACT, BSDL, BSD erase, FATAL_ERROR, GuiUtilities, Dr.Watson, crash

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
I am attempting to create an SVF or STAPL file in 4.2i iMPACT in the File Generation Mode. If I add a device with a BSDL file assigned (rather than a JEDEC file), the following fatal error is reported if I attempt to perform an erase operation:

"FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:WinApp.c:570: This application has discovered an exception condition from which it cannot recover. Process will terminate."

Solution

To work around this problem, assign a JEDEC file to the device.

The software should not permit erase operations on devices that are only assigned a BSDL file. This will be corrected in the next major software release.
