11.x CORE Generator - "ERROR:sim - HierarchicalDesignC:46 - Can't open client storage area "HDProject" in project file "xlnx_auto_0.ise""

Description


When I attempt to generate a core using the CORE Generator software, the following error occurs:



"ERROR:sim - HierarchicalDesignC:46 - Can't open client storage area "HDProject" in project file "xlnx_auto_0.ise"."



How can I resolve this error?

Solution


This error occurs if the user's working (start in) directory does not have write permissions enabled. For example, if CORE Generator is launched via the Start Menu shortcut, the working (Start in) directory is the ISE install directory. If the user account does not have permission to write to this location, CORE Generator issues the error.



To resolve this error, start CORE Generator in a folder with full read and write permissions. This can be performed as follows:



1. Open a command window or terminal window, browse to a location with full read and write permissions (i.e., your project directory), and launch CORE Generator by typing "coregen".



2. Change the starting directory in the "Start In" field under the CORE Generator shortcut properties to a directory with full read and write permissions.
