XST - "ERROR:HDLParsers:3010 - .vhd Line xx. Entity %s does not exist."


The following error is reporred by XST. Why?

"ERROR:HDLParsers:3010 - <file>.vhd Line xx. Entity %s does not exist."


This error appears when the entity specified in the configuration statement is not found.

Some of the reason why this error might occur are listed below:

1. Incorrect entity name is specified (due to a typographical mistake).

2. Entity that is being configured is not yet compiled.

example :

configuration myconf of myentity is

-- rest of config stmt


end configuration;

Now, if "myentity" is either a typographical mistake or for some reason the file containing "myentity" is not yet compiled, you will receive this error.
