8.1i ISE / CORE Generator - Manage Cores, View Resource Utilization (Under Current Project Settings) fails with the following: "ERROR:coreutil - NgdBuild:41 - Cannot write NGDBUILD log file"


Keywords: tmp, log, bld, core, integration, Project Navigator, CORE Generator, CORE Generator, Proj Nav

CORE Generator is opened with the Project Navigator Manage Cores process. Then, View Resource Utilization is selected within CORE Generator (Under Current Project Settings) for one of the Generated IP; the Resource Utilization process starts, but fails with an NGDBUILD: 41 error.

Example of console output:

"Welcome to Xilinx CORE Generator.
Gathering Resource Utilization information...
ERROR:coreutil - NgdBuild:41 - Cannot write NGDBUILD log file /project/tmp/_cg/test_core.bld". Please make sure that you adequate disk space and that you have write permission to the output
This message may also occur if you are currently having network problems."


The problem is that the tmp directory (under the current project directory) does not exist and CORE Generator fails to create it.

To work around this issue, manually create a directory named "tmp" in the Project Navigator project directory. Re-run View Resource Utilization (Under Current Project Settings), and the IP core utilization data should display properly.

Fixed in ISE 8.1i IP update 1
