7.1i ChipScope Pro - When running EDIF flow in Project Navigator, the incorrect input netlist is passed to ChipScope inserter


Keywords: NGCBuild, .edn

Urgency: Standard

General Description :
The 7.1i Project Navigator tool passes the incorrect input netlist to the ChipScope Core Inserter tool when in EDIF flow. Instead of passing the input netlist "<design_edif_path>/my_design.edn", it passes "./my_design.ngc".


The NGCBuild program that is called by the ChipScope Core Inserter tool cannot find the ".edn" extension after it fails to find the ".ngc" extension because it is located in a different directory than the ProjNav files called <design_edif_path>.

To work around this issue, copy the "<design_edif_path>/my_design.edn" file to "./my_design.edn".

This problem has been fixed in the latest 7.1i Service Pack available at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 7.1i Service Pack 2.
