11.4 PlanAhead - EXCEPTION:Xdm:ModelImp.c:994:$Id: (...)- Xdm_Exception::CannotReadFile

Description

When I kick off an implementation run from the PlanAhead tool on a Windows machine, Translate completes, but MAP generates the following error:

"EXCEPTION:Xdm:ModelImp.c:994:$Id: ModelImp.c,v 1.27.50.1 2009/06/16 00:37:40 jdl
   Exp $ - Xdm_Exception::CannotReadFile
   file='../../../../../project_baseline_fp_no_partition.promote/Ximpl_1top_usbE
   ngine1/floorplan_1_prev_mapped.ngm'"

NGDBuild was able to find all the files, so the location of the files is correct. What does this error mean?

Solution

This is a known issue with the PlanAhead tool when run on Windows; the path length limitation on Windows is the cause of the error.

To work around this issue, reduce the path length to the files.

A more descriptive error message is planned for a future release of the PlanAhead tool.
