4.2i CORE Generator - A "Synthesis Exception" error occurs during synthesis when I attempt to generate a core (CAM, 8b10b Encoder and Decoder)


Keywords: COREGen, core, XST, synthesis, failed, contents, addressable, memory, 8b10b, Encoder, Decoder, root, project, directory

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
I am using 4.2i CORE Generator with IP Update #2, and the following error is reported when I attempt to generate a core:

"*** Synthesis Exception ***
The CORE Generator cannot generate the Content Addressable Memory core, CAM, as an error occurred during synthesis.
Synthesis failed."


This error occurs on PCs when CORE Generator is started up from the root directory of a drive (e.g., "c:\").

To avoid this error, start CORE Generator up from any other directory except the root directory of the drive being used (e.g., "c:\my_project").
