7.1i COMPXLIB - An error occurs when an older version of COMPXLIB is run after the ISE 7.1i COMPXLIB is run within the same directory

Description

Keywords: 6.3i, .cfg

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
An error occurs when an older version of COMPXLIB is run after the ISE 7.1i COMPXLIB is run in the same directory. Why does this occur?

Solution

The ISE 7.1i COMPXLIB has a completely new "compxlib.cfg" file. COMPXLIB has the ability to read the "compxlib.cfg" file if it exists in the current directory; and when an older version of COMPXLIB is run, it is not be able to understand the information in the "compxlib.cfg" file.

To work around this problem, ensure that the new "compxlib.cfg" file has been deleted or renamed prior to running the older version of COMPXLIB.
