6.2 EDK RevUp - "Error: Expecting a 6.1 MSS file. system.mss is a not a 6.1 MSS file"


Keywords: XPS, RevUp, EDK, MSS, XMP

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I attempt to run RevUp on a 6.1 EDK design to update it to 6.2 EDK, the following errors occur:

"Expecting a 6.1 MSS file. system.mss is a not a 6.1 MSS file.
ERROR: Please revup your system.mss to a 6.1 MSS file (PSF version 2.1) using the appropriate revup path. For example, a 3.2 MSS file has to be rev'ed up to a 6.1 MSS file using the revup tool in 6.1 installation.
Revup from 6.1 to 6.2 failed
ERROR:MDT - Unrecoverable error(s) were encountered while updating your project."


These errors occur for the following reasons:
- RevUp has already been run on the MSS file; nothing else is required.
- The MSS file contains 3.2 syntax.

Run RevUp on the 3.2 project to update it to version 6.1 before opening the project in the 6.2 software.

The "revup32to61" executable is located in the EDK installation tree:


NOTE: If you are attempting to run RevUp on the ML300_Design_2 design found on the EDK Examples page, use the following instructions to update each of the XMP files for that design.
1. Open one of the projects in EDK 6.2. This will convert the project to the 6.2 software.
2. Copy the "system_mss.61" to "system.mss".
3. Open another project in EDK 6.2.

Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for each project.
