9.1i EDK - "ERROR:PersonalityModule:7 - Unable to open Xilinx data file for Vendor/Device Module "qrvirtex2""


I am using ISE WebPACK 9.1i with EDK 9.1i. When I try to create a new project or try to open a new project in EDK 9.1i, I receive the following error:

"ERROR:PersonalityModule:7 - Unable to open Xilinx data file for Vendor/Device

Module "qrvirtex2". Please make sure that it has been correctly

installed before continuing."

This error occurs because WebPACK of ISE does not support Virtex-2 QPro device.


To work around this problem, copy $XILINX\qrvirtex2\data\qvirtex2.acd and $XILINX\qrvirtex2\data\qvirtex.acd from a full ISE install into your WebPACK install. If you do not have access to a full ISE install, contact Xilinx Technical Support and they can provide you with these two files:


This problem has been fixed in the latest EDK 9.1i Service Pack, available at:

The first service pack containing the fix is EDK 9.1i Service Pack 1.
