10.1 ISE - The Device Settings in the ISE project do not match those in the XPS project


In the ISE 10.1 Project Navigator tools, I am unable to open my < project >.xmp file or add a new XPS file to my ISE design. I receive the message:

"The Device Settings (device family, device, package, or speed grade) in the ISE project do not match those in the XPS project. Do you want to change the XPS device settings to match the ISE settings?"

However, if I select "yes", I receive the message, "Process 'Updating XPS project device settings' failed," and the XPS project does not open.

How can I fix this issue?


For Windows, add %XILINX_EDK%\lib\nt to your PATH variable under the system variables.

For Linux, add $XILINX_EDK\lib\lin to your PATH variable using setenv.

For more information on setting your environment variables, see (Xilinx Answer 11630).
