6.1i FloorPlanner - FloorPlanner crashes when I try to exit on PC

Description

Keywords: AREA_GROUP, crash, dump, PC, read, UCF

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I use 6.1.02i software (on PC only), Floorplanner crashes when I try to exit. I created an AREA_GROUP for my logic, had Floorplanner write out the UCF, and then exited Floorplanner. Then, when I reloaded the design in FloorPlanner and read in the UCF that FloorPlanner had recently written out, and then tried to exit the tools, they crashed.

Solution

This issue was caused by a bug in Service Pack 2 for 6.1i (6.1.02i) and occurs on PC only. This issue is fixed in a service pack for the 6.1i software. The service pack containing the fix is SP3 (6.1.03i).

This problem has been fixed in the latest 6.1i Service Pack available at:
