10.1 ISE - Project Navigator starts Xplorer script when Place and Route process is executed

Description

When Xplorer mode is set to Timing Closure under the implement Design properties, selecting Translate or MAP runs only the individual process (including previous processes needed for completion). However, running the Place and Route process starts the Xplorer script.

Should the sub-process under Implement Design start Xplorer or run a single iteration of the selected process?

[CR marked Obsolete in 11.1 - Not sure when it was actually fixed]]

Solution

With Xplorer mode set to Timing Closure, either the Implement Design Process or Place and Route Process (since it is analogous to running the entire Implement Design Process in this situation) should start the Xplorer script. However, in this mode it does not make sense for the Translate and MAP processes to run, and they should not be a selectable option.

The Translate MAP and Place and Route processes will be disabled in a future revision of the design tools.
