LogiCORE SPI-4.2 (POS-PHY L4) v5.2 - MAP reports: "Fatal_Error: Pack: pktbafirewall.c: 138:1.1- Failed to create device helper..."

Description

General Description

When I run a design with a PL4 core on my PC in ISE 5.1i Service Pack 3 MAP, the following error is reported:

"FATAL_ERROR: Pack:pktbafirewall.c:138:1.1 - Failed to create device helper Process will terminate. To resolve this error, please consult the Answers Database and other online resources at http://support.xilinx.com. If you need further assistance, please open a WebCase by clicking on the "WebCase" link at http://support.xilinx.com."

This error does not occur on UNIX machines.

Solution

If you are using the "-timing" switch in MAP, try running MAP without using this switch.

If you are running "imlement.bat" (which is provided with the PL4 design example), please remove the "-timing" switch.

If your design cannot meet timing after the "-timing" switch is removed, please contact Xilinx Customer Support at:
