*Obsolete* 4.2i/5.1i/5.2i iMPACT - "ERROR:Portability:90 - Command line error: unexpected argument[5] "and" found"

Description

Keywords: iMPACT, portability, 90, readback, space, 514

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When attempting to execute the READBACK command in iMPACT, the following errors are reported:

"ERROR:Portability:90 - Command line error: unexpected argument[5] "and" found."

followed by:

"ERROR:iMPACT:514 - One of the options for this operation is invalid, please choose different options."

What are these errors occurring?

Solution

These errors occur when a readback file is saved to a location that has spaces in the directory path (for example: "documents and settings\...\desktop"). The Xilinx software does not allow spaces in the file path.

To work around this error, please save the readback file to a path location without any spaces.
