10.1 ISE - The Project Navigator Create Schematic Symbol process fails for ABEL files


The Create Schematic Symbol process fails for ABEL source files.

When I run the Create Schematic Symbol process on any ABEL source, the following error occurs:

"ERROR: ProjectMgmt - TOE: ITclInterp::ExecuteCmd gave Tcl result 'wrong # args: should be "dpm_abelCreateSpl _iDUInst

_iSourceDUNode iv_ModuleName iv_InputFile"'.

Tcl_ErrnoId: unknown error

Tcl_ErrnoMsg: No error

_cmd: ::xilinx::Dpm::dpm_chDUSourceOperExecute dpm_ecsCreateSchematicSymbol $piThisInterface

errorInfo: wrong # args: should be "dpm_abelCreateSpl _iDUInst _iSourceDUNode iv_ModuleName iv_InputFile"

while executing

"dpm_abelCreateSpl $_iDUInst $_iSourceDUNode $iv_ModuleName $_ProjectFile $_inputFile

("abl" arm line 2)

invoked from within

"switch -regexp -- $_InputFileExtension {

sch {

set _Exe "sch2sym"

set _IsSch 1

set _IsSpl 0


(procedure "dpm_ecsCreateSchematicSymbol" line 43)

invoked from within

"$_flowProc $_iTranInst $_iDUInst $_iSourceNode"

(procedure "::xilinx::Dpm::dpm_chDUSourceOperExecute" line 27)

invoked from within

"::xilinx::Dpm::dpm_chDUSourceOperExecute dpm_ecsCreateSchematicSymbol $piThisInterface" "


The problem is that procedure "dpm_abelCreateSpl" accepts only 4 arguments but is being passed 5 arguments from "dpm_ecsCreateSchematicSymbol".

To resolve this issue, remove "$_ProjectFile" from the "arg" list in "dpm_ecsCreateSchematicSymbol", or add a dummy "arg" in the parameters of "dpm_abelCreateSpl".

To work around this issue, you can do one of two things:

- Create the symbol by hand.


- Edit the Tcl file.

This issue exists in both ISE 9.1i and ISE 10.1.

The issue is fixed in ISE 9.2i and ISE 10.1.03i.
