5.1i ISE - The "Back-annotate Pin Locations" process fails, with the status marker displaying an orange "?"


Keywords: ISE, Project Navigator, status, back annotate, pin locs, out of date, question mark

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
My project design has been successfully implemented; however, when I run the "Back-annotate Pin Locations" process, an orange "?" status marker appears next to all implementation processes, indicating that they are out of date.

Green checkmarks momentarily appear next to the processes, but these change to orange question marks when the "Back-annotate Pin Locations" process completes. The "Back-annotate Pin Locations" report indicates that the process ran successfully.


This occurs if the UCF file has been added as a source file in the design project. Because the UCF file changes (back-annotated pin locations are written to it), all processes that depend on the UCF file are given the "out of date" status. The implementation does not need to be rerun.
