4.2i FPGA Editor - "ERROR:FPGAEditor:509 - File "D:\temp\F.pga\PL4_Top_par" of -bd option has incorrect extension..."

Description

Keywords: FPGA Editor, 509, -bd

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I open design files (.ncd and .pcf) in 4.2 FPGA Editor, the following error is reported:

"ERROR:FPGAEditor:509 - File "D:\temp\F.pga\PL4_Top_par" of -bd option has incorrect extension. A Block RAM data file must have either ".mem" or ".elf" extension."

Solution

1

FPGA Editor reports this error if the directory name contains a "." (period).

To avoid the error, change the directory name so that there is no period in the path to the .ncd file.

2

This will be fixed in version 5.1i of the software (scheduled to be released in mid-2002).
