8.1i CORE Generator - "ERROR:coreutil:4 - Couldn't open "<Project Navigator project Directory>\_cg\xil_####_##.in" for writing"


Keywords: core spaces, IP, Projnav, _cg, CORE, COREGen, regenerate, customize, Proj Nav

When I try to generate a core, an error similar to the following occurs:

"ERROR:coreutil:4 - Couldn't open "C:\path with spaces\test\_cg\xil_2488_12.in" for writing.
Finished Customizing.
Generating IP...
ERROR:coreutil:4 - Couldn't open "C:\path with spaces\test\_cg\xil_2488_13.in" for writing.
Finished Generating."

Any of the following procedures will cause this error to occur:
- Running Regenerate Core from CORE Generator
- Customizing a new core from CORE Generator
- Creating a new IP source from Project Navigator (Project -> New Source -> IP (COREGen and Architecture Wizard))


In the ISE 8.1i release, CORE Generator does not properly handle paths with spaces.

This issue will be fixed in the first IP update for CORE Generator 8.1i.
IP update 1 for CORE Generator 8.1i should be installed after ISE service pack 2 (SP2) or service pack 3 (SP3).
