When Schematic and Mentor Graphics (Schematic) is selected in Project Options, the following error message appears in the transcript window.

"ERROR: Selected Flow Vendor and Bus format are in conflict. Core <Selected Core> will not be elaborated."

Also, an Elaboration Error pop-up window displays "Not all output products were generated successfully. View Messages."

Solution

This error occurs if the Design Entry project options are set to Schematic and Mentor Graphics (Schematic). The bus format will automatically be set to B[I].

Select Project -> Project Options, and change the Design Entry Vendor from "Mentor Graphics (Schematic)" to "Other". This will allow a user to select any Netlist Bus Format.

Click OK to close the Project Options window and then generate the desired Core.
