11.2 CORE Generator - Error occurs when I try to generate some IP on Windows Chinese, Japanese, and Korean


Keyword: CORE Generator, Coregen, Clocking Wizard, IBERT, Virtex-6 GTX, Virtex6 GTX, Video, Timing, Controller, Serial Rapid IO, SRIO, Chinese, Japanese, Korean

Error: Failed to generate file: <IP wrapper name>

This issue is caused by a mishandling of a warning message.

JAVA reports a warning message in relation to the unsupported character set (e.g., "WARNING: Default charset MS932 not supported, using ISO-8859-1 instead") to stderr on startup. However, CORE Generator detects this warning as an error and exits generation.

To work around this issue, please set the following environment variable.


For information on how to set Environment variables, see (Xilinx Answer 11630).

This is resolved in the ISE 11.3 release.
