8.2i ISE - Project Navigator Implement Design process gives ERROR: Unable to open Xplorer report


Keywords: xplorer, open, log, renaming, permission denied, EDIF, edf, edn

Running Implementation in Xplorer mode results in the following error:

"Xplorer run completed successfully. Promoting best results...
ERROR: Unable to open Xplorer report
Error processing Xplorer results
Project updated with Xplorer best results."

Looking at the project directory, I find that neither "xplorer_results" nor "xplorer_backup" folders exists.


This problem shows up only in the edif flow. Project Navigator names the generated files using the top design unit as the basename while the xplorer script uses the actual filename.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 8.2i Service Pack available at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 8.2i Service Pack 1
