Description


Why does the following error occur in theISE design tools when I run Check Syntax?
"ERROR:Xst:426 - Illegal command usage : elaborate -ifn S -ifmt S -project_file S -work_lib S -debug S -vhdl_style S -debug S -lso S"

Solution


This error can be caused if the project directory structure contains spaces.
You can fix the problem by removing the spacesfrom the path.
