8.1i CORE Generator - Core generation fails with "WARNING:coreutil:266 - Could not remove outfile" and "ERROR:sim:57 - Error found during generation"


Keywords: install, space, java, IP, core

Core generation fails with a generic error message saying JAVA failed followed by: "WARNING:coreutil:266 - Could not remove outfile" and "ERROR:sim:57 - Error found during generation"

ERROR:coreutil - An error occurred while running Java. Please examine the console or coregen log file for a specific IP related error.
If there is no specific error the problem may be due to memory limitations. For more information please consult solution record 21955 available from:
WARNING:coreutil:266 - Could not remove outfile.
Finished Generating.
ERROR:sim:57 - Error found during generation


Core generation will fail if there is a space in the ISE install directory path.

If Coregen is run with debug and Java verbose messaging, the log file will show that a path to the jar directory is cut off at the location of the space.

For example, if the install path for ISE is C:\xilinx 81
The path listed in the java call right before the error shows a cut off path: 81\coregen\lib\coreutil/jar;c:/xilinx in thread "main"
