11.x ChipScope Pro Inserter - "ERROR:ProjectMgmt:387-TOE: ITclInterp::ExecuteCmd gave Tcl result 'can't read "lOutputFileList": no such variable'."


When I attempt to invoke the ChipScope inserter from the ISE design tool GUI it fails to launch, and the following message appears:

"Open source failed. The Tcl edit hook did not run properly. See the transcript window for details"

The transcript window displays:

ERROR:ProjectMgmt:387 - TOE: ITclInterp::ExecuteCmd gave Tcl result 'can't read "lOutputFileList": no such variable'.

Tcl_ErrnoId: ENOENT

Tcl_ErrnoMsg: no such file or directory

_cmd: ::xilinx::Dpm::dpm_chSNEditOperationWithUpdate $piThisInterface

errorInfo: can't read "lOutputFileList": no such variable

while executing

"dpm_flowOperationOutput $iDesign $lOutputFileList "

(procedure "dpm_chipscopeRunInserterSetup" line 32)

invoked from within


How do I work around this issue?


This issue can be related to the working directory used for the ISE design tools project; if this is a different directory than the project directory, the error occurs.

To work around this issue, set your Project and Working directories to the same directory.
