11.1 ISE - SmartXplorer run from Project Navigator results in "Error:ProjectMgmt:387 - TOE: ITclInterp::ExecuteCmd gave Tcl result 'error deleting "smartxplorer_results": permission denied'"


When I run SmartXplorer a second time from Project Navigato, the following error occurs:

"Process "Translate" completed successfully

Launching SmartXplorer ...

Error:ProjectMgmt:387 - TOE: ITclInterp::ExecuteCmd gave Tcl result 'error deleting "smartxplorer_results": permission denied'.

Tcl_errnoId: unknown error

_cmd: ::xilinx;;Dpm::dpm_chtransformExecuteForSmartXporer $piThisInterface

errorInfo: error deleting smartxplorer_results": permission denied

while executing

"file delete -force $aSmartXplorerSettings(resultsDir)""


This error occurs in ISE 11.1 if SmartXplorer is run from Project Navigator and the results from a previous run of SmartXplorer are open in Design Summary; a report file is opened in a text editor, or technically, any file from the results directory is open in any application which prevents the directory from being deleted.

Project Navigator is not able to remove these directories and results in an error message in the console window.

In ISE 11.2, the error message will better explain why the process fails.
