4.2i Virtex-II MAP - "FATAL ERROR: Map:Portability/export/ Port_Main.h: 116:1.17 - This application has discovered an exceptional condition..."


Keywords: Windows NT, FATAL ERROR, Map, Portability, Port_Main.h

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
MAP fails on a particular design and reports the following error:

"FATAL_ERROR:Map:Portability/export/Port_Main.h:116:1.17 - This application has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot recover. Process will terminate. To resolve this error, please consult the Answers Database and other online resources at http://support.xilinx.com"

The error occurs immediately after MAP prints the message:

"Using target part '2v6000bf957-4'."


This problem will be fixed in the version 5.1i software.

Meanwhile, in software version 4.2i, you may work around the problem by using the following command to modify the stack size of the MAP executable:

editbin /STACK:10000000 %XILINX%\bin\nt\map.exe

The "editbin" command is available in the Microsoft VC++ development environment in devstudio6.0/VC98/editbin.exe.

A modified version of the 4.2i SP3 MAP executable is also available at:
