System Generator for DSP 12.1 - Why do I receive a java exception error when I select "New Compilation Target" in the token?


When I attempt to launch the SBDBuilder by selecting "New Compilation Target" from the System Generator token, the following error occurs:

[Fatal Error] :630:3: The element type "Family" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "</Family>".

org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The element type "Family" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "</Family>".

This message can occur due to a problem during the installation of System Generator. 
A possible work-around is to run the following command:
>> xilinx.environment.getpartinfo('refresh') 
You can also try to regenerate the partinfo xml file manually.

To find the location of the file do the following:
>>loc = xilinx.environment.getpartinfo('location')
Open the xml file in a file browser.

You will see that for a section of XML a start <Family> tag does not have the correct end </Family> tag, instead it has <Family>.

If this fails to resolve the issue, please open a case with Technical Support.
