8.2i EDK - ERROR: Could not find BestRun in system_xplorer.rpt

Description

In XPS when I select Project > Project Options... > Hierarchy and Flow tab > Xplorer Scripts, I get the following error message: 

 

child killed: SIGABRT 

Initial ngdbuild failed. 

 

ERROR: Could not find BestRun in system_xplorer.rpt 

make: *** [implementation/my_proj.bit] Error 22

Solution

There is an error in the PERL script that controls Xplorer. 

 

1 - Open up C:\EDK\data\fpga_impl\edk_xplorer.pl in a text editor 

2 - Find and change the following lines 

 

from: 

for (my $i = 0; $i < $#ARGV; $i++ )  

 

my @ngcfile = split('.', $ARGV[$i]); 

 

to: 

for (my $i = 0; $i <= $#ARGV; $i++ )  

 

@ngcfile = split(/\./, $ARGV[$i]); 

 

3 - Save and close the file 

 

This problem is fixed in the upcoming 9.1i release of EDK.
