MIG Spartan-6 MCB - MIG generated ise_flow.bat script file produces error during XST on Windows

Description

MIG generates an "ise_flow.bat" script file in the output "example_design/par" and "user_design/par" directories. This script file, when invoked, runs the design through synthesis, implementation, Trace, and Bitgen resulting in a bitmap file to download to a board. This script file points to an XST project file. For MIG v3.4 Spartan-6 MCB generated designs running on Windows, the synthesis project file ("example_design\synth\example_top.prj" or "user_design\synth\core_name.prj") includes the following references to a ".pnotes" and an ".inotes" file which do not exist:
verilog work ../rtl/.inotes
verilog work ../rtl/.pnotes

These incorrect references result in the following XST error:

ERROR:Xst:2927 - "..\synth\example_top.prj" line 1: Source file ../rtl/.inotes does not exist"

Solution

To work around this issue, remove the entries from the project file and re-run the ise_flow.bat file in the par directory.

verilog work ../rtl/.inotes
verilog work ../rtl/.pnotes

This issue only affects designs running the ise_flow.bat script file for a Windows generated Spartan-6 MCB design. Designs running on Linux or using an ISE flow will not be affected by this. The issue with the ise_flow.bat file on Windows will be resolved in MIG 3.5 (available with MIG 12.2). Until this time, the above noted work around is required.
