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

Description

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".

Solution

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:
http://support.xilinx.com/xlnx/xil_sw_updates_home.jsp
The first service pack containing the fix is 7.1i Service Pack 2.
