11.3 ISE - An ISE software project that is Copied or Archived retains file properties from the original project location


The Archive and Copy Project functions retain the original value for file type properties such as the XST Work directory. A file type property points to a file or directory location. Even if the user has never changed the values of these properties, the value in the Copied or Archived project continues to point to the location from the original project.

This issue has the potential of:

- corrupting or changing the generated output of the original project.

- resulting in read and write failures for directories or files that no longer exist in the previous location.


Customers who intend to copy, move, or archive an ISE design tools project should install the patch available at the following link:


The patch available at the link above should be used only for the ISE 11.3 software version. Fixes available in the patch have been incorporated in the ISE 11.4 software.
