8.2i XST - "ERROR:Xst:2587 - Port %s of instance %s has different type in definition %s"

Description

Keywords: Boolean, enum

When I run XST, the following error occurs:

"ERROR:Xst:2587 - Port %s of instance %s has different type in definition %s.
entity %s with generics:
ERROR:Xst - Unexpected error found while building hierarchy. "

Solution

This error occurs when XST incorrectly rejects if the port type is a record and if the record has an element that is Boolean, enum, or character type.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 8.2i Service Pack 3 available at:
