10.1 ChipScope Pro - "ERROR:ChipScope:No Xilinx Environment Found!"


When attempting to open ChipScope Pro Core Inserter, the following error occurs:

"ERROR:ChipScope:No Xilinx Environment Found!"


This error occurs when you are using a 32-bit ISE install with a 64-bit ChipScope install. You cannot mix 32-bit and 64-bit installs of ISE and ChipScope since they are not compatible. To work around this issue, make sure that both the ChipScope and ISE installs are either 32-bit or 64-bit.

Alternatively, adding multiple entries in the $Xilinx environment variable causes the Core Inserter to error out with the same message. To work around this issue, verify that your $Xilinx environment variable exists and is part of the $PATH.
