Project Navigator - Fatal Error while creating a new project in a ClearCase Dynamic View folder


I encountered the following errors while attempting to create a new ISE project in a ClearCase Dynamic View folder:

FATAL_ERROR: GuiUtilities:Gq_Application.c:573: - This application has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot recover. Procewss will terminate.



How can I resolve this error?


Note: Xilinx does not test or support the use of its software in conjunction with ClearCase. As such, Xilinx cannot guarantee correct software functionality with software installed in, or projects located in ClearCase folders.

Some ClearCase users have resolved this error by switching the ClearCase folder mode from Dynamic View to Snapshot View. The ISE project file must be also checked out since ISE software requires full write access to it.

When running Xilinx tools installed on ClearCase drives, some users have found that setting the XILINX variable to a mapped drive, rather than the master drive, enables the software to run correctly.
