5.1i ISE - "Errors were encountered while reading this file. It cannot be opened" is reported when I open an ECS schematic


Keywords: ECS, relative, schematic, path, open, error, ISE, Project Navigator

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I open a schematic by double-clicking on it in the "Sources in Project" Project Navigator window and relative path information is used, ECS is unable to open the file and issues the following error message:

"Errors were encountered while reading this file. It cannot be opened."


To work around this problem, change the path information from "relative" to "absolute":

1. Right-click on the source file in the "Sources in Project" window.
2. Select the "Toggle Paths" option.

You can now open the file by double-clicking on the source.
