11.3 XST - "ERROR:HDLParsers - Cannot rename dependency database for library..."


Keywords: HDLParser, permission denied, XST, delete, anti-virus

In my design, I am receiving the following error:

"ERROR:HDLParsers - Cannot rename dependency database for library "work", file is <FILE>, Temporary database file <DATABASE_FILE> will remain. System error message is: Permission denied."

I have confirmed that I have permission to the file. What else can I check?


This issue might happen when anti-virus software prevents tools such as XST from deleting that file.

To work around this issue, set your anti-virus software to not check your working directory. This prevents the anti-virus software from locking any files in that directory.

If this does not solve the issue, please open a WebCase with Xilinx Technical support:
