7.1 ISE - "The .snp file you are attempting to open does not have write permission "

Description

Keywords: .Snp, Rev Up , snapshot, project Nav, Update, migrate

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In Project Navigator 7.1i, a customer opens a snapshot which was created in an earlier software revision and they see the following error:

"Error: The .snp file you are attempting to open does not have write permission and therefore cannot be open in project Navigator"

Solution

When updating a design to a higher version, the permission of the Snapshot is changed to read only.

To work around this issue:
1. Browse to your project directory.
2. Select the ".snp" file.
3. Right-click, Select Properties and uncheck the Read Only mode.
