Flow Engine 6.0.1: Message "Could not find 2018.spd" during compilation of XC4000 design

Description

Key Workds: 2018, find, spd

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When running Implementation in Flow Engine, the following
message is issued in the scroll-by status window:

"Could not find 2018.spd."

However, the XC2018 device is not selected.

Solution

This message is harmless, but quite annoying. Design Manager/
Flow Engine will always check for the presence of the XC2018
data files before Translate or Implementation stages are run.
(PARTLIST.XCT is the file containing part information that is
read in by Design Manager/Flow Engine during Translate and
Implementation.)

If the user chose not to install the XC2018 data files during
the XACTstep installation procedure, they will see this message
scroll by each time they compile their designs.

To avoid seeing this error message, copy all XC2018 related
data files in the XACT\DATA directory on the XACTstep 5.2.x/
6.0.x CD-ROM to the XACT\DATA directory on your local hard
drive.
